- 2000+ international visitors
- 60,000 sq. metres of exhibition space
First held in 1986, the EP exhibition used to rotate between Beijing and Shanghai. However, since 2020, the event has been held exclusively in Shanghai on an annual basis, which is why it’s called EP Shanghai from now on. Short for the International Exhibition on Electric Power Equipment & Technology, the international exhibition is paired with the Shanghai International Exhibition on Electrical Equipment (Electric Shanghai) to create synergy for exhibitors and buyers. The duo also shares exhibition space with EPA and the China Data Center Expo.
As the foremost electric power and electrical exhibition in China, EP Shanghai receives significant backing from major power group corporations and power grid corporations throughout the country. Furthermore, it remains the sole electric power event recommended by The Ministry of Commerce of PR China since 2013. That’s high praise and a stamp of approval from the highest level of the government, cementing the fair’s reputation and value not just locally but internationally.
The joint product portfolio with Electrical Shanghai is quite extensive, capturing the entire value chain of related product categories:

China’s launch of the “Dual-Carbon” policy and the development of a new electric power system has prompted EP Shanghai to evolve as well and adapt to the new market shift. In 2023, you’ll be seeing the introduction of five brand new exhibition zones: "Electric Power Automation”, “One-stop Power Transmission and Distribution”, “Integrated Energy”, “Intelligent Manufacturing” and "Energy Digitalization”.
These specialised zones are designed to go over the entire industrial chain of high, medium, and low-voltage, empowering the industry to capture new opportunities and meet the growing demand. Emerging companies, innovators and startups have a much better chance to reach their intended audience and make a splash by securing a spot in one of these areas.
