China Paper History

China Paper/China Forest Historical Background

1987 (launching)
- China Paper/China Forest (CP/CF) event was initiated by E. J. Krause & Associates Inc (EJK) and made its debut in Shanghai in 1987. In co-operation with the US Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industries (TAPPI), the show invited a considerable number of international equipment suppliers with high technology vendors to attend both the exhibition & conference to introduce the latest methodology and advanced management solution to Chinese paper mills. This inaugural event served as a unique drive for the innovation of the paper industry development in China and attracted thousands of Chinese managers, technicians from Chinese paper industry to attend and visit the show.Though on this occasion there were no Chinese paper mills exhibiting, it helps the China paper enterprises to set a new direction & guidelines for its further development. 

1989 (2nd)
-- The show moved to Beijing and EJK started to hold it with China Paper Industry Development Company (CPIDC) as the Chinese partner to organize the Chinese exhibitor pavilion.

1991, 1993, 1995, 1997, 1999 (3rd-7th)
- All these exhibitions, as a biennial industrial show event, were held in Beijing. In the late 90’s, the China paper industry development had improved rapidly and the numbers and sizes of Chinese paper enterprises had also largely increased. 

2000 (8th)
- Due to market demand and the request of paper enterprises in eastern China, the show moved back to Shanghai this year and organizer decided to hold the event one year in Beijing and one year in Shanghai respectively making it an annual event with two different venues at different years. Toward this move, lots of overseas exhibitors responded favorably and rushed to Shanghai to explore the new market opportunities and seek new business partners. As a result, this renewed Shanghai paper event achieved breaking-record figures both in terms of exhibitors and attendees. Ever since 2000, on even year China Paper Shanghai is scheduled to be held in September in Shanghai, while on odd year China Paper / China Forest is to be held in Beijing.

2001 (9th)
- Both overseas and Chinese exhibitors and attendees had increased steadily and Chinese exhibitors took about half of the exhibit space. From this year onward, the exhibition was scheduled to be held in Beijing and Shanghai on a alternative year.
