Ever since Beijing received the bid to host the Beijing 2008 Olympics everything in Beijing has become big. Beijing now hosts the most massive and most beautiful airport in the world. Truly. If you fly in from overseas you will be amazed.
Beijing’s hosting of the 2008 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition is no different. The show is being held at the new, massive China International Exhibition Center New Venue in the Tianzhu Airport Industrial Zone between the 5th and 6th ring roads near the Beijing Airport. It is huge. But still, not big enough for Beijing: they have built temporary tents to house the auto parts section of the exhibition.
And this year there will be more conferences than any human can possibly attend. But you may find many of them very interesting:
