Numerous digital B2B (business to business) and B2G (business to government) match-making activities will also be organized for international enterprises.
For companies, industry members and professionals wanting to take part remotely, a promotional exhibition corner has been conceived and realized ad hoc at the expo, and the numerous companies that have registered from countries such as Italy, USA, Japan, etc. will alternate, via live streaming and other methods of video connection, presenting themselves to the public.
The event will also host schools and universities of all levels from the province of Sichuan with a specialization in sustainability, as well as enterprises and institutions from the environmental protection sector, to build a bridge between “innovation in entrepreneurship” and “transformation in scientific research.”
CDEPE is Sichuan’s first “zero-emission” expo and will be held in compliance with the principles established by the Sichuan United Environment Exchange.
