Dates and new venue announced for BICES 2015
By Chris Sleight07 August 2014
The 2015 BICES exhibition will be held from 22 – 25 September at the New Beijing International Exhibition Center (NBIEC), which is on the northern outskirts of the Chinese capital, near its main airport. It will be the 13th edition of the show.
According to organisers the China Construction Machinery Association (CCMA), the NBIEC offers eight indoor halls with a total area of 106,000 m2. There are also two outdoor exhibition areas with 50,000 m2 each for a grand total of 206,000 m2.
The BICES exhibition is held every two years, alternating with the Bauma China exhibition in Shanghai. For the last few editions it has been held at the Jiu Hua International Exhibition Center, outside Beijing. The move to the NBIEC brings the event closer to the city, but it is still some 25 km from the centre.
The last time BICES was held was October 2013, when it covered 210,000 m2 of exhibition space.
