On Sept 2, 2016, the First Cultural Exposition started at the International Exhibition Center, Kangbashi New District, in Ordos, a city in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

With a theme focusing on cultural creativity and joint development, the expo has attracted over 500 businesses and organizations to present their works and products.

During the five-day event, there will be four major events, along with exhibitions and trading, an academic forum, an award ceremony, and many other activities.

During the exhibition and trading part, there will be three themed pavilions, including cultural industry achievements, elaborate creative works, and ethnic-style handicrafts.

As for the forum, it aims to discuss the development of the cultural industry in China.

Relying on a rich history and culture, the Ordos event will encourage Mongolian ethnic groups to promote their unique cultural identity, whilst promoting trade and investment in the cultural sector.

Kangbashi New District, which is hosting the event, is not only the center of culture, education and technology in Ordos, but is also home to fashionable and creative ideas.

Combining Mongolian ethnic culture and modern architecture, the district has become a top destination for North China's tourists in the summer season, where refreshing air and splendid grasslands attract large numbers of visitors.

From Sept 2 to 6, local residents and tourists have free access to the exciting new expo.
