welcome to Beijing
Beijing Exhibition Center

More than 40 years of catering to the world's trading nations and professions and greeting the representatives of its nation's economic and cultural interests has given the management of the Beijing Exhibition Center the experience required to make each and every exhibition, conference and trade show successful, memorable and profitable.

Opened in 1954 as the city's first large-scale, comprehensive exhibition venue, with the late Premier Zhou En-Lai cutting the red ribbon and Chairman Mao Tse-Tung contributing poetic thoughts, the 735,000-square meter, Russian-style building is a period piece landmark fronted by a red star-topped spire and an entrance lobby festooned with massive, multi-layer crystal chandeliers. Offering a cohesive yet flexible and easily accessed venue are the three East Wing exhibition halls and single large hall, entertainment theater and restaurant in the West Wing.

Primarily intended for the display of heavy industrial and agricultural machinery, the two outdoor areas flanking the central building have a total of 8,ooo square meters These spaces can also be set up to exhibit light industrial products, including those of the electronic and similar enterprises.

An advantage not shared by most of the city's other trade and commerce exhibition facilities is the direct connection to the rail system, including the Xizhimen passenger station to the north. There are 1,500 meters of rail siding, which allows the transport directly on site of pieces of almost any size and weight. If needed, the rail area can provide some 2,ooo square meters of secure exhibition or storage space.

Two features not generally available elsewhere in the city are the Cinema hall and Beijing Amphitheater. The Cinema Hall's 1,000 seats and production facilities are designed for motion picture showings, live stage productions and a range of general and seminar type meetings. With its up to date sound and lighting systems, the 2,700 seat, bi-level amphitheater features a stage eminently suitable for large scale musical productions.

Among BEC's notable events are, since 1993, the annul International Military Logistics Equipment Exhibition, the 1996 to 1999 China International Financial Technical Exhibitions, and the 1997 Italy Marco Polo Fashion Expo. In 1997, it was also chosen to showcase the achievements of China's Fourteenth Party Congress.
