With the theme of "New Design, New Life, New Paradise", the 9th expo will showcase and present the four major sections of "international creative design works, international new handicraft movements, cultural and tourism integration, and creative future industries". Three highlights: first of all, the theme exhibition of "8:30 in Gusu" appeared in the expo, comprehensively showing the mode of promoting the night economy development in Suzhou, and showing the achievements of "Cultural Tourism+" leading the high-quality development of night economy. Secondly, this year’s expo will show the "International Style" with the "China-Foreign Design Dialogue", and promote the construction of Suzhou "Modern International Metropolis" through an international perspective. At the expo, visitors can see that in conjunction with the 2020 global anti-epidemic theme, artists use "Masks" as the main material to create "Social Isolation Hall" and "Social Gathering Hall" to reflect different feelings in the global environment. In addition, works by top artists and designers from different cultural backgrounds and fields around the world shine together. Thirdly, this year’s expo can also be "Meeting in the Cloud". An online platform brings together exhibitions, information, investment promotion, studios, shopping malls and other functions to create a "Never-Ending Expo".
What’s more, the "New Handicraft Movement Award", the professional awards event of the expo, was particularly eye-catching.

In this new handicraft movement, the 10 major brand awards and the 10 major works awards were selected. These works have injected new momentum and set a new benchmark for the innovative development of traditional handicrafts.
