New Venue for COS+H 2018!


Powered by the State Administration of Work Safety and Messe Duesseldorf Shanghai, China International Occupational Safety & Health Exhibition (COS+H) has been successfully held biennially for 8 consecutive editions in Beijing since 2002. Over the past 15 years, COS+H has increased in scale and quality, growing to the most popular international event in the safety production technology and equipment industry.

As priority for the State Administration of Work Safety in 2018, COS+H will be held from October 15 to 17 October 2018 at Hangzhou international EXPO center.


Changing event location was decided after a thorough study and discussion with the relevant departments. The decision was made after fully considering the following important factors:

1. The Yangtze River Delta has a concentration of cities serving as significant strategic nodes for the One Belt One Road initiative, and the demonstration and leading role played by the safety industrial base can effectively attract professional audiences from East and Southeast Asia, Central and Eastern European and other countries and regions. The ILO, the International Social Security Association and the International Association of Labor Inspection will also organize related activities during the Forum, helping to attract professionals to visit and exchange information from all over the world.

2. The Yangtze River Delta is China’s leading economic core region and largest diversified industrial base with a considerable demand for safe production technology equipment. Zhejiang Provincial Government will fully support the 9th Forum and Exhibition in Hangzhou and help to bring business professionals within the province to visit the exhibition en masse. During this time, the relevant departments in Jiangsu, Shanghai and other neighboring provinces and cities will also organize local business professional to visit the exhibition in Hangzhou.


3 .As the exhibition continues to expand in scale, it becomes increasingly difficult for the host venue in Beijing to meet the exhibition space requirement and the needs of the visiting professionals. Hangzhou international EXPO center is the major venue for the G20 Summit, with a full range of facilities and convenient transportation, Hangzhou international EXPO center can adequately meet the exhibition-related needs.

Given the factors stated above, improvements on venue size and quality for COS+H 2018 will certainly set new records. The exhibition booth reservation has also started, we welcome you to join us for COS+H 2018.
