Report from previous Music China shows-
Music China 2012
Just back from the fast-paced, buzzing Metropolis that is Shanghai, the host city of Music China. At the Shanghai New Exhibition Expo Centre in PuDong, participants from the Worlds Music Industry descended with excitement, anticipation and optimism.
Representing G&R – The Piano Movers, my interest mainly focused on the piano hall, E.1, with impressive displays from all European Piano Makers, Bechstein, Bluthner, Fazioli, Bosendorfer and Steinway evidently making great efforts to showcase their pianos in Shanghai. The Chinese piano manufacturers equal in their efforts to impress and evidently passionate about their business, with innovative designs and exciting ideas.
As the days passed, the halls were swarming with buyers and traders from all over Asia, the Piano Auctions Ltd stand was continuosly mobbed by buyers of antique European pianos for the Chinese and Asian market. It presented a great opportunity to meet existing customers who I hadn’t met before and attach their faces to the names, likewise potential new clients with requests for shipping pianos from the UK and Europe to China. Our only hurdle was clearing pianos through Chinese Customs, which was resolved in a meeting with the Chinese authorities on Friday who seemed to be co-operative and accomodating. This news was not only good for us, but for all Chinese piano buyers and suppliers alike. With our agents able to to clear customs in Shanghai and arrange full destination services, a new door has been opened for UK and European pianos into China.
I have to say the atmosphere at Music China was matched only by the excitement of the Shanghai nightlife. Great Show, great City and great opportunities
Well done Music China. See you next year.
