The whole industry applauded Ms. Cheng for her professional insights and talks on trends, products, and potential business opportunities. The live broadcast was extended from one hour to three hours until midnight in China. Viewers had questions asked and interacted with Ms. Cheng. She also interviewed three Chinese exhibitors, who commented on their fruitful time on GPE as well as the organizers and international partners of CIPS on GPE.
