The eight-day hybrid holidays, combining the National Day and the Mid-Autumn Festival, were treated as a substitute for the Spring Festival. According to WeChat Pay, the mobile wallet of the WeChat messaging app, which has more than one billion users, expenditure at tourist sites and hospitality facilities jumped 83% and 71 %, respectively, from 1-3 October compared to May Day holidays.

While consumptions are booming, garden horticultural and flower consumptions are also recovering rapidly. A barometer of China’s floral industry, the largest freshly cut flower market in Asia has regained its hustle and bustle as the COVID-19 pandemic is brought under control. Compared with Valentine’s Day in early 2020, The Qi Xi Festival has attracted a larger number of flower orders from domestic guests.

For horticultural, gardening and floricultural peers, this trade fair will provide the latest industry updates and technologies.
