Seeking New Innovations in Cue Sports? Head to Guangzhou, China

Heaven under one roof: If you’re a Cue Sports fan and can get to China – Guangzhou is the place to go to try out new Cue Sports innovations…

In April, the successful 12th Guangzhou Billiards Exhibition in China was held showcasing a range of new innovative products from a variety of Cue Sports including Snooker, Pool, Chinese 8 Ball and Billiards.

The cue sports product industry in China has been booming since 2005, incidentally, the year that China’s no 1 snooker player Ding Junhui broke through and won his first ranking event in, ironically, China at the China Open.

Heaven Under One Roof for Cue Sports Fans

Since then, cue sports have been the bread and butter for Chinese fans as they enjoy watching a variety of players entertain crowds as UK players now regularly travel across Asia participating in snooker tournaments. Ronnie O’Sullivan is a crowd favorite in Asia.  The Shanghai Masters will be taking place this month as the fans will again get to see the likes of O’Sullivan dazzle on the baize.

Not only that but China now has a string of events, including:

  • The Shanghai Masters

  • The China Championship

  • The China Open

  • The World Open

Companies such as bet365 will have mobile betting markets available for all these tournaments and they also offer live streaming via your phone as well.

Along with the masterful players comes the craving for big business in products. Chalks, gloves, tips and cues all get showcased as fans, players, companies all come together under one roof in China Guangzhou International Billiards Exhibition. It’s the biggest trade fair in Asia and also recognized as one of the widely recognized exhibitions in the world for cue sports.

There are hundreds of product booths among 15,000 square meters of space. Not only do products get showcased but professionals also attend from a variety of billiard sports who also entertain crowds at the event.

The 2018 edition of the event saw these extraordinary figures from a press release from GBE organizing committee:

  • 105 exhibitors attended the show

  • 8000 registered buyers

  • 32 countries represented

Visitor growth from the 2018 edition grew, but one of the surprising stats from the report said that there were 31% of visitors who attended from Africa. The highest visitor rate came from Hong Kong regions with 41%. However, European visitor numbers were just 12%.

The GBE will present to you a bigger better gathering in May 2019.
