The first China International Import Expo kicked off on October 5 at Shanghai. Invited by China Construction Eighth Engineering Division (CCEED), one of the general contractors of the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) (NECCSH) project, Zhongshan company Huayi participated in the lighting fittings for the supporting hotel InterContinental Shanghai Hongqiao NECC. The company especially designed a Shanghai-style “clover crystal lamp” for the hotel banquet hall.
Reportedly, NECCSH is like a clover in shape, with an overall floorage of 1.5 million sqm. It can provide an exhibition area of 500,000 sqm, including 400,000 sqm indoor areas and 100,000 sqm outdoor areas.
According to Zhang Hao, sales director of Huayi, the company finished the lighting project of G20 China in 2016, which was highly praised by China Construction Eighth Engineering Division. In that case, CCEED once again invited Huayi to join the lighting engineering of InterContinental Shanghai Hongqiao NECC this time. The most attracting part of the project fell upon the clover-like crystal lamp in the banquet hall, which was designed basing on the apparent shape of NECCSH and the features of ancient canal in western Shanghai.
