It is said by the project head of AWE that, since the exhibition hall company is not able to provide sufficient halls, the exhibition scale of AWE in 2019 will not increase sharply and thus, the organizer will strictly select exhibitors with the purpose of improving the quality and level of exhibitors and adjusting and enriching the scope of exhibition within limited exhibition scale. The exhibition booth in 2019 is in the very shortage. Therefore, the race is wide open. When AWE 2019 had not been officially launched, it is very hard to book one booth.
