Tesla joins line-up for China International Consumer Products Expo in Hainan

CHINA (HAINAN)/US. Tesla – a world leader in the electric vehicle and clean energy markets – is the latest major international business to confirm its attendance at the upcoming China International Consumer Products Expo, to be held in the Hainan capital of Haikou from 7-10 May.

The California-headquartered company’s presence at the showpiece event will deepen its ties with the vibrant Chinese island, after it signed a contract for projects relating to the development of the Hainan Free Trade Port last October. More recently, on 15 January, the first Tesla service centre in Hainan opened in Haikou.

Tesla has become established as a world leader in the development of stylish electric cars

Tesla Global Vice President Tao Ling said his company is “highly supportive of and optimistic” about the Expo, and sees it as a key supporting element for the development of the Hainan Free Trade Port.

The much-anticipated Expo – organised by Hainan Provincial Bureau of International Economic Development (Hainan IEDB) – is set to drive an increase in domestic consumption and help bring overseas spending back to China.

The Expo is seen as a key element in the strategy for the Hainan Free Trade Port, which will cement the island’s status as an important host to major brands

More than 200 global brands have now confirmed their participation at the Expo. These include a number of prominent brand owners in the travel retail channel such as Rémy CointreauL’Oréal, Edrington Group, Pernod Ricard and Shiseido.

The organisers estimate that between 3,000 and 5,000 professional buyers and up to 50,000 high-end consumers will visit the Expo each day.
