It has been three years and a half ever since its opening and there are more than 40 employees in 15 departments, a big contrast to the original 7 employees in the Year 2001.
While at the same time, we have found a way suitable for the development of Hixpo after we learn and generalize from the past three-and-a-half experience under the leadership of Mr. Yang Jie, Chairman and General Manager of Hixpo. Till now, we Hixpo boast the fastest developing speed, the greatest influence and the most competitive in exhibition execution in Ningbo and Zhejiang Province as a whole.
We Hixpo have already successfully introduced China International Housing and Furnishing Exposition, China Tourism Investment Symposium, fully participated in operation of China Food Products Exposition, and nurtured Ningbo Real Estate Exposition, Ningbo Contemporary Building & Decoration Material Exposition, Ningbo Secondhand House Exposition and so on.
During the three and a half year, the annual exhibition area claimed by Hixpo has risen to 75,000 m2, as compared to 13,000 m2 from the very beginning. It is such an amazing developing speed as we can see that no one except we Hixpo did it in such a short period of time.
All these achievements contribute to the 'Five Persistence' put forward and advocated Chairman Yang.
