Sponsored by the China Tourism Association, the Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism and the Pinggu District Government and organized by the Executive Committee of the 2020 World Leisure Congress, the Second China (Beijing) Leisure Conference will be held on September 21-22, 2018 in Pinggu District, Beijing.

 

Following the success of the First China (Beijing) Leisure Conference in 2017, the second conference will focus on the theme Urban Culture and Leisure Industry Development. It will comprise a main forum, three parallel forums and a number of other tourism promotion activities.

 

The Second China (Beijing) Leisure Conference is an international event to gather experience and industrial and corporate resources for the 2020 World Leisure Congress. It is also the first professional international conference since the World Leisure Congress entered its Beijing cycle. Experts, famous leisure businesses, international organizations, government agencies and non-governmental professional organizations from home and abroad have been invited to focus on hot topics in the leisure sector. During the event, a series of the latest research findings on leisure cities and industrial development will be released. The conference will also showcase new forms and products in the leisure industry and promote the concept of leisure lifestyle.

 

Compared with the first conference, the Second China (Beijing) Leisure Conference will have an improved profile of guests, and the activities will be better and more expertly organized. Roger Coles, Chair of the Board of Directors for the World Leisure Organization (WLO), will speak on the new trends in the development of a culture-driven leisure industry in cities. Other keynote speakers will compare major international leisure cities and focus on frontier topics in the leisure field.

 

The three parallel forums, with the themes of urban culture and tourism leisure, urban culture and sports leisure, and urban culture and leisure agriculture, will invite speakers from the WLO and other organizations.

 

On the opening day of the conference, the Seminar on the Development of Chinas Leisure Tourism will also be held to discuss the industrial trends in Chinas leisure tourism, the designing of Pinggus tourist products, and the experience of different cities in developing leisure tourism.

In addition to academic forums, activities including the 2018 International Leisure Industry Expo, a leisure fashion carnival and the Pinggu Farmers Harvest Festival will also be held, not only highlighting the theme of the conference, but also leading the new leisure fashion by displaying and promoting new achievements and products in the leisure industry.

 

With the State Council approving the establishment of China Farmers Harvest Festival, Pinggu, a key area for leisure agriculture around Beijing and a famous peach-producing area, decided to establish the Pinggu Farmers Harvest Festival. It aims to promote leisure agriculture, advance the rural vitalization strategy, better implement the principle of development putting ecology first, and demonstrate the new look of the countryside in Pinggu.

 

To be held at the beautiful Jinhai Lake Scenic Spot on September 23-24, 2018, the festival will combine both ceremony and live experiences, including artistic performances during the opening ceremony, interactive activities and product exhibitions. There will also be lucky draws with prizes such as specialty agricultural products, local delicacies, fine agricultural products and day tours offered by the sponsors. As the conference will be held during the Mid-Autumn Festival, visitors are warmly welcomed to Pinggu to experience its special leisure tourism.

 

To better promote the concept of leisure lifestyle, Pinggu has reorganized existing tourist, festive and cultural resources. It has held tourist and leisure events such as the 2018 Beijing International Peach Carnival, 2018 Pinggu Peach King Competition and the Opening Ceremony of the Third Yaji Mountain Flat Peach Festival in July. It will hold more events such as the Pinggu Great Wall-1000 Sports and Leisure Season.

Pinggu, the venue of the China (Beijing) Leisure Conference, is an ecological conservation area northeast of Beijing. Standing at the junction of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei Province, with outstanding geographic advantages in the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, Pinggu has a beautiful ecological environment. It has forest coverage of 66.94 percent, the highest among all districts in Beijing.

 

The district, which follows the principle of ecology-friendly and green development and has the leisure industry as a pillar industry, has been recognized as a national model county (district) for leisure agriculture and rural tourism, a leisure travel model in east Beijing and a national health city. It is also famous nationwide for calligraphy, peaches and ornamental stones.

Pinggu is now seeking to establish itself as a national model district for all-for-one tourism, an ecological progress model district in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and a national forest city. Its ecological resources and the potential of its leisure industry will help Pinggu host this conference successfully.
