China Shanghai International Arts Festival (CSIAF) is a state-level international arts festival hosted by the Ministry of Culture of China and undertaken by the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government. As a major sector of the CSIAF, the Shanghai International Performing Arts Fair (SPAF) has become the most influential and most effective international performing arts fair of its kind ever held in China.
The SPAF aims at building up an international platform for exchange of outstanding programs, performing companies and artists, promoting the cooperation among the Chinese and international performing arts institutions and pushing forward the sound development of the Chinese performing arts market. The Fair focuses on recommending excellent programs with distinct Chinese features to the global stage and at the same time select and book the main programs for CSIAF to present in the next few years. So far, many international performing companies have successfully found their way into the Chinese performing arts market through the platform of SPAF.

Over the past ten years, the SPAF has attracted professionals from about 1000 festivals, performing arts agencies, performing groups and performing arts organizations of over 60 countries and regions coming here to exhibit and exchange.
