In April 2005, in order to further develop ICIF into a market-oriented trade fair, according to the proposal by the Party Committee and Government of Shenzhen City, Shenzhen International Cultural Industry Fair Co., Ltd (ICIF Company in short) was set up with joint investment by Shenzhen Press Group, Shenzhen Media Group and Shenzhen Publication and Distribution Group Company. From then on, ICIF Company has become the only operator for the annual ICIF, operating ICIF on the basis of market rules. At the same time, the full name of ICIF was changed from the 1st session’s “Shenzhen International Cultural Industries Fair” into the 2nd session’s “China (Shenzhen) International Cultural Industries Fair”, further strengthening its position as a national-level trade fair. From then on, ICIF has been officially transformed from a local trade fair into a national-level trade fair on cultural industries jointly hosted by several ministries of China, and its functions as a national-level platform for the export and trade of Chinese cultural products and services have been further enhanced and strengthened.
