F518 Exhibition Center

Located in the center of F518 Idea Land, the Exhibition Center separates the creative space in postmodern architectural style and the street in traditional Chinese architectural style and thus divides F518 Idea Land into two regions: one is dynamic and the other is static. With a triple-interlocked structure, F518 Exhibition Center covers an area of 1,300 square meters, and a gross floor area of 3,400 square meters, so it can serve as the venue for a great variety of design exhibitions, art exhibitions, lectures, forums, fashion shows, small theater performances, live music, evenings, launch conferences, ordering conferences, salons, film and TV program shooting activities.

The Exhibition Center not only has excellent music, lighting effects and electronic equipment, but also has a team of excellent execution that can provide strong support for the launch of a variety of products. Staying committed to the original intention of launching and exhibiting products of F518 enterprises, the Exhibition center has unconsciously grown into one of the most outstanding exhibition center on creative achievements of Bao’an District.

An important component of F518 strategic plan is to be the value demonstration center for global designers and artists, which actually refers to positioning of F518 Exhibition Center. The Exhibition Center endows “Interpretation" with an extraordinarily attractive meaning and develops the brand exhibition stage into a dazzling public service platform. Since 2009, F518 has held many impressive exhibitions in cooperation with different creative enterprises.

We aim to develop the Exhibition Center into a first-class multi-function display platform and a never-ending exhibition. This creative exhibition space keeps growing along with the growing of the cultural industry in Bao’an District. Since the Exhibition Center was established from transformation in 2009, it has held over 162 activities, serving 98 customers home and abroad. The excellent creative releasing functions of F518 Idea Land are so well-known nationwide that a lot of national and global brands choose to launch their products, hold exhibitions and carry out promotion activities at F518 and the Exhibition Center also wins favorable comments from a lot of customers.
