Magic Eggs Meet Future 1KM @ Shanghai’s International Cultural Device Expo.

Just before this year’s Chinese National Day, 21 multi-colored eggs will magically appear on the landscape of the North Bund in Hongkou District to highlight the opening of this year’s International Expo of Innovative Cultural Devices, a showcase for emerging technologies, integration cases, innovative solutions and new types cultural consumer programs.

 

 

This, the 2nd Shanghai International Cultural Device Expo (CDEX), also known as Future 1KM, will be held from September 24 to October 7. The Future 1KM Science and Technology Festival will bring 21 new forms of immersive, experiential, scientific, and technological works of art through “Dome Art World”, “Magic Theme Park” and “Public Experience Area”.

 

 

To make it even more special, it will be the first time that CDEX will be held in an open, urban public space, instead of inside a pavilion. This new venue will provide a golden opportunity to perfectly present the cultural devices together with magnificent river views and urban landmarks to provide a unique opportunity to showcase the achievements of the global cultural equipment industry to the public.
