Guangzhou, the Canton Fair city, boasts to host trade fairs and events all year round. The new Guangzhou Baiyun International Conference Center, opened at this year's beginning, has become a new hot choice for important business meetings and events.
Located in the core area of Baiyun New Town and at the foot of Baiyun Mountain, the Guangzhou Baiyun International Conference Center is the second phase of the Guangzhou Baiyun International Convention Center, adjacent to the Guangzhou Urban Planning Exhibition Center.

The Conference Center was designed by He Jingtang, an academic at the Chinese Academy of Engineering and his team. He Jingtang is the designer of many famous landmarks in China, including the China Pavilion of the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, the Guangzhou branch of the National Archives of Publications and Culture, the Guangzhou Urban Planning Exhibition Center, Haixin Bridge, and many more.
With a design concept inspired by the Baiyun Mountain and Lingnan culture, the Conference Center highlights overhanging eaves, courtyards and other features of traditional Lingnan architecture, while bringing in the graceful scenery of Baiyun Mountain to present a new Chinese-style building. The three inner courtyards, with the theme "Nation", "Hometown" and "World", are exquisite and elegant, displaying the essence of the Cantonese culture.
