8. HAND CARRIED EXHIBITS
We do not recommend that you hand carry exhibits into China. However, if you cannot avoid using this method and your samples are detained by customs please hand over the detention receipt and List of Exhibits (duly filled) to Rogers Worldwide’s staff at the fairground and we will arrange the collection of your goods from the airport. Exhibitors arriving late with hand-carried exhibits must be made aware that the Customs formalities and pick up procedures may take one or two days.
Exhibitors may also encounter problems when they hand-carry exhibits out of the exhibition halls since Customs prefer these exhibits to be returned as a shipment.
If Customs at the airport allow exhibitors to take the hand-carried items to the exhibition centre, exhibitors should register the exhibits with the organizer’s Chinese counterpart. Exhibitors with exhibits borrowed from local organizations should also register details of these items with organizer’s Chinese counterpart. Without proper registration, exhibitors will have problems taking their exhibits out of the hall after the show.
9. CATALOGUES & PUBLICITY MATERIALS – CENSORSHIP
The General Administration of Press and Publication of the People’s Republic of China stipulates that all advertising materials (such as printed matter and giveaway items) and technical information materials in all media shall be allowed for display or use at the exhibition, only after customs has inspected and approved the censorship clearance.
Exhibitors are requested to submit samples of literature (2 copies each) and souvenirs (2 each) in advance to Rogers Worldwide with a List of Exhibits (LOE). All promotional materials will be provided to the Chinese Customs for inspection in advance, and should arrive with Rogers Worldwide no later than 45 days before opening of show.
Films/slides/video tapes/CDs, VCDs, DVDs are not allowed to be distributed or consumed during the show. Importation is permitted strictly for demonstration purposes only and must be (100%) returned to origin after the close of the exhibition. Censorship must be submitted at least 45 days prior the shipments arrival in China and Rogers Worldwide cannot accept responsibility if consignments are detained/delayed due to the absence of a video temporary import license issued by the local authorities.
In addition, exhibitors are advised that brochures, giveaways and souvenirs are subject to import duties as assessed by the Chinese Customs Authorities which are payable on entry. Please note that the import of alcoholic drinks, cigarettes and foodstuffs for exhibitions are also restricted by Chinese Customs.
When Taiwan or Hong Kong is mentioned in the promotional materials, exhibitors should avoid using any expression from which one would misinterpret that Taiwan or Hong Kong is in a position equivalent to a country.
10. HAZARDOUS OR DANGEROUS CARGO
Will be subject to a 50% increase against official tariffs and please note that we are unable to arrange return of any hazardous or dangerous cargo!
All kinds of batteries are now considered as dangerous cargo by air and shipping lines in Hong Kong and bookings will not be accepted for batteries unless we are able to provide the carrier with the "material safety data sheet" and recognized laboratory test report from the manufacturer. No guarantee of acceptance of your cargo can be given by the airline/shipping line even if we have furnished them the requisite documentation.
In order to avoid any problems we would strongly suggest that you to remove any batteries contained in your products prior to shipping. Please visit the IATA (International Air Transport Association) website for dangerous cargo regulations for more details.
As the official tariff is computed on a volume/weight basis and has no correlation with the value of exhibits, it follows that the cost of insurance cover is not included in our charges. It is the responsibility of each exhibitor to arrange a comprehensive marine insurance policy covering transport to the exhibition, during the exhibition, and the return of exhibits to domicile, including the period the exhibits are handled by us, and also ensure that transport insurance is arranged for any exhibits sold locally.
It is advisable to insure the exhibits through a company of which the People’s Insurance Company of China is the agent in China. Exhibitors should also bring a copy of the insurance policy to China as it will be required in case we need to file a claim for damage/loss on your behalf or arrange a local survey report.
12. HEAVY & OVERSIZED EXHIBITS
This applies to any single exhibit in excess of 1000 kg and 5.00 cbm, that requires the use of a forklift or mobile crane for installation.
Exhibitors with heavy or oversized exhibits must be on site at least two days before opening to direct the operation of unpacking and positioning. If a mobile crane or forklift is required for installation of equipment, exhibitors should send their handling requirements to us in advance. A detailed layout should also be provided to better assist our on-site operations. If exhibitors with oversized cargo do not arrive on-site in good time and the organiser requests us to unpack and position exhibits unsupervised, we shall handle this operation at the exhibitor’s risk. PLEASE BE SURE TO ARRIVE EARLY!
Cases for heavy exhibits should be constructed where the sides are joined by bolts rather than by nails or screws. This will prevent the case from being damaged during unpacking and will save considerable time, especially during the exhibition breakdown. Please mark the front side of the case clearly to ensure correct positioning and indicate all lifting points, together with the centre of gravity. We will not provide any packing materials for return exhibits, so exhibitors should ensure that they have adequate and appropriate packing materials for repacking at the close of the exhibition.
Exhibitors shall be responsible for the consequences of improper packing.
i. Protection against Damage and Rain
As the exhibits are repeatedly loaded and unloaded during transportation; shocking/bumping will sometimes be inevitable. Exhibits will be placed outdoors many times, including open-air storage at the exhibition centre before and after the exhibition. Therefore, exhibitors must take necessary precautions against damage and rain, since our Chinese partner will not assume any responsibility for the damage, especially when the return exhibits are to be packed with used packing materials (the case as well as aluminium foil, plastic covers etc very often would have been damaged already during unpacking).
ii. The Case The case must be strong enough to avoid damage during transportation as well as unpacking, and in particular, be suitable for epacking, (for sale or return movement after the exhibition). Packing in cartons is not considered suitable for repeated handling, especially for valuable or delicate equipment.
iii. Maximum Dimensions, Weight and Floor-Loading Capacity Due to the restrictions of the exhibition halls, special arrangements are required when the following constraints are exceeded:
|Width (meter)||2.4 M|
|Height (meter)||2.7 M|
|Floor-loading (kg/sq.m.)||300 kgs|
Exhibitors shall be responsible for all consequences if they send to the show any exhibits with dimensions and weight that exceed the limits mentioned above.
The following marking must be painted on two opposite sides of each case.

|Gross Weight||kg||Stand No.|
|Dimensions L x W x H||(cms)|
Case Number (Cases Must Be Numbered In Sequence)
15. CUSTOMS CLEARANCE
We will handle the Customs formalities on your behalf, however, on some occasions the presence of exhibitors will be required. As Customs require the official forwarder to be responsible for the control of all exhibits, exhibitors should not allow their exhibits to be taken away from the show ground without the prior agreement of Customs, via Rogers Worldwide.
16. UNPACKING/REPACKING ON-SITE
We will assist you in physical unpacking and installation of exhibits, however exhibitors must supervise and be responsible for these operations. For this purpose, a representative of the company must be available on-site during the move-in period. If exhibitors arrive on-site late, or, instruct us to arrange unpacking or repacking unsupervised on their behalf, we shall handle these operations only at the exhibitors risk.
Similarly, during exhibition closing, exhibitors must also supervise the dismantling and repacking of exhibits, especially for delicate or heavy equipment. When exhibits are repacked with used packing materials, the packing may use no longer suitable to protect the equipment against damage/moisture, compared with the original. Exhibitors must therefore bear the responsibility for any consequences arising therefrom.
17. SOLD EXHIBITS
All sold exhibits will be repacked at the close of show and removed to a customs bonded warehouse until the necessary domestic customs formalities have been finalised. From the time your exhibits are placed in bonded storage Rogers Worldwide will not be able to assist in the handover protocol of sold commodities. Your buyer will be responsible for the presentation of the necessary documents to customs so that temporary status can be converted to a permanent customs entry.
There are only a small number of Chinese companies that are granted with import/export licences, therefore it is advisable that exhibitors check whether or not their potential buyer is allowed to trade with them directly. If not, the Chinese buyer must use a licensed broker to be his trading agent. Your buyer should already be aware of the import requirements however they may check with the exhibition centre customs to clarify the correct procedures on-site.
* Buyers interest in foreign products.
* Sample testing and technical data study.
* Price acceptable.
* Application of import permit.
* Acceptance of contract terms and approval number.
* Payment and delivery terms.
Exhibitors are encouraged to send their product profile & price list to potential buyers in advance of show date to give the Chinese companies enough lead time to prepare the necessary import paperwork. A three month bonded storage period, pending sale, is the maximum term permitted before customs insist any remaining items are re-exported out of China.
18. EXHIBITION CLOSING PROCEDURES
The following documents will be distributed to exhibitors before closing.
* a copy of the List of Exhibits previously submitted to customs;
* a Disposal of Exhibits
We will start to return empty cases to stands on the closing day after all visitors have left, and will assist exhibitors with repacking and undergoing Customs formalities. In order to ensure the closing of the exhibition can proceed smoothly, those exhibitors with heavy and oversized exhibits may be required to repack their exhibits on the next day. Our on-site representative will inform exhibitors of the exact arrangements during the exhibition.
Exhibitors are requested to declare on their List of Exhibits form the following information.
- to bonded warehouse;
- to be returned (port of destination/mode of transport)
Please fill out and return the Instructions for Disposal of Exhibits together with the List of Exhibits to us at least 3 hours before closing. If exhibitors fail to give explicit instructions no Customs formalities can be carried out, and their exhibits will be left to Customs disposal, all charges being for the exhibitors’ account.
Please pay special attention to the following Customs’ regulations:
- declaration of the contents in each package must be correct;
- items other than those declared exhibits (e.g. personal effects, souvenirs bought in China) are absolutely not allowed to be returned together with exhibits.
Violations of these regulations will result in confiscation and heavy fines imposed by the Chinese Customs.
Please do not leave the exhibition halls before handing over your packed cargo and instructions to our staff. Once these documents have been processed with Customs and the relevant transport departments, changes will not be accepted. The return of all exhibits will be arranged when Customs formalities have been finalised and exhibits handed over to Chinese carriers for re-export. BEWARE, the demand for transport facilities is great and exhibitors should not expect their cargo to physically depart from Chinese Ports within two to three weeks of closing. If an expedited export service is required this must be requested at least one month in advance and full instructions/revised documentation should be sent to us at the same time.
