The festival includes 50 cultural and tourism companies, as well as 100 camping brands.

Since 2023, tourist consumption has grown in China, and micro-vacations are the emerging new trends that are driving up subsidiary industries, said Jin Zhun, secretary general of the Tourism Research Center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

Jin claimed new outdoor micro-vacations will meet the demand of young people and boost the tourism sector.

Haining is also known for the annual Qiantang tidal bore spectacle, which dates back over 2,000 years.

At the event, industry experts held a forum to discuss the growth of tourism and camping trends in China.

Chain campsites in China are shrinking every year, but small-scale campgrounds are growing, and overnight stays and catering improvements are new business demands, said Li Yangjun, deputy secretary general of the camping division of the China Sporting Goods Federation.

Li said that camping infrastructure, content, and marketing investment thresholds are also increasing.
