This paper deals primarily with convention and exhibition business as it pertains to China and discusses some of the problems that the industry faces due to a lack of perceived understanding. The first chapter examines the statement of the problem and provides details about why a study of this nature is necessary. In chapter two, the literature on the subject is reviewed. Since there is not enough literature to provide a comprehensive account of convention and exhibition business when it comes to China, other countries are looked at in the form of case studies and these are compared to China. The paper shows that China would do well to merge its convention and exhibition industry and its tourism industry as much as possible and that other countries may also want to examine the idea of doing this. The third chapter deals with the methodology of the issue and how the study itself was conducted. What kind of data was collected, as well as where it came from and how it will be analyzed are all important issues discussed in chapter three, which provides a strong lead-in for chapter four, where the data that was collected is actually analyzed. This analysis is at the heart of the study, and the research questions that were created in chapter one are dealt with again in light of the information collected. In the last chapter, the information is summarized and conclusions are drawn about the issue. The recommendations for future research into the area of convention and exhibition business in China are also provided.

From the Paper:

"Conventions and exhibitions should be studied with relation to the tourism industry. On the inside, incentive travel, exhibition participation, and reception service of receiver are traditional tourism categories in general. The argument is that the convention and exhibition industry also pertains to the tourism industry category. Dai (2003) notes that examination, approving, and holding of conventions and exhibitions are all started from an external economic trade department and correlative function department in China. Accordingly, many people regard 'tourism of after convention and exhibition participation' as one part of the tourism industry but they do not consider that the collectivity of conventions and exhibitions is composed of urban tourism. This is, on the whole, a very narrow perspective, and there are reasons why the researcher believes this."
