This was the website for the 1998 Urumqi Fair held in Xinjiang, China.
Content is from the site's 1998 archived page to be perused for historical purposes only.
An aside: Since 1992 the Urumqi Fair, formerly known as the Urumqi Foreign Economic Relations and Trade Fair, has been held annually. Its purpose is to promote trading and market exploration in Northwestern China with foreign countries located mainly in Central Asia. The last fair was held in 2010. The event is now known as the China-Eurasia Expo and has become the leading trade platform in the region, extending its trading reach beyond for Central and South Asia to the entire Asia and Europe. When I was working for Archer Daniels Midland Company, the world's largest agricultural processor of soybeans, corn, wheat & cocoa, I attended several of the Urumqi Fairs including the 1998 show. But that was years ago. I am now working for a Philadelphia furniture store that is an authorized dealer of the most respected Italian furniture designers and manufacturers such as Bonaldo, Cattelan Italia, Fiam Italia, Foscarini, Gamma Arredamenti, Pianca, Presotto Italia, Tonelli and Tonin Casa. The store, room service 360 is uniquely positioned to offer the most complete, most comprehensive and most exclusive collections of contemporary furniture available on the market today. I just love the depth of the contemporary Italian dining furniture styles offered at room service 360. I admit I flailed around for awhile after I left Archer Daniels Midland Company, but I now recognize that being involved in furniture design and dealing with both individuals and interior designers is really my passion. Sometimes the road to your true calling takes you the long way around. But I have fianally arrived.
