On September 6th, 2019, the 5th China (Sichuan) International Tourism Investment Conference and the 6th Sichuan International Tourism Trade Expo were held in Leshan City, Sichuan Province.


The expo’s 207-square-meter ship-shaped Sanya pavilion was one of the most popular sites at the event. A series of promotional events such as on-site bamboo dance performances and scenic picture and product exhibitions were presented at the booth to help create a tropical-island atmosphere.

Sanya’s renown as China’s top tourist destination has grown since the city won a number of awards at The Global Tourism Destination Carnival in 2019 — an event held the evening of September 6th, 2019.


At the carnival, Sanya won the following awards: the Top-10 Domestic Best Tourist Destination Award, the Top-10 Best Domestic Transportation Tourist Destination Award, the Top-10 Domestic Best Tourist Destination Award for Supporting Facilities, the Top-10 Domestic Best Tourist for Respiratory Index Award, and the Top-10 Best Domestic Tourist Destination Award for Artistic Culture.


Additionally, award-winning works for the 2019 China Characteristic Tourism Commodity Competition were unveiled at the expo. Among Hainan’s 31 prize-winning entries, two of Sanya’s featured tourism commodities — “Office Cup Set Supplies” and “Condiment Series” — won gold prizes at the event.


Sanya also organized tourism promotional conferences during the expo, intended to help promote the city’s distinctive tourism products including MICE tours, wedding and honeymoon tourism, and sports tourism. Those products were showcased using videos and PowerPoint presentations.
