The Shanghai Exhibition Centre or the Shanghai Exhibition Hall is an exhibition and convention centre and major landmark located in central Shanghai, China. The building was built in 1955 as the Sino-Soviet Friendship Building to commemorate the alliance between China and the Soviet Union, a name by which many locals still refer to the building. Reflecting its original name, the design draws heavily on Russian and Empire style neoclassical architecture with Stalinist neoclassical innovations.The building is a major landmark in Shanghai. At 93,000 square metres, it is one of the largest integrated building complexes in central Shanghai by footprint. At 110.4 metres (to top of spire), it was for decades (1955–1988) the tallest building in Shanghai. Its main frontage, an open quadrangle with an elaborate central tower, faces Yan'an Road, today the main east-west artery across central Shanghai, while its secondary façade, a colonnade, faces West Nanjing Road, one of the premier retail and commercial streets of Shanghai.

  • 正好遇到上海书展人超多。建筑感觉有些年头,很好奇在作为展览中心之前,这里是干什么的。里头虽然老但是可以看出还是结实的 
  • We have been exhibiting at this venue for some time. But has free wifi. But slow all the facilities are up to date and convenient the number 7 train take you to the doors of the venue. 
  • Walking around the city saw this unusual for China building from an architectural point of view. The impression that somewhere like that seen in Russia. Later decided to read the information about the building, where it became clear that it was a gift of the USSR to the brotherly people of China.

  • West gate. Used to be named China-soviet union friendship mansion. High-end exhibitions held here.
  • 在上海展览中心参加过很多活动,其实建筑造的非常棒,但是总显得场馆太大,展出会略有杂乱。其实如果不是因为人多的关系,应该是满不错的,可以安静的观展就跟好了,展馆分为两楼,一楼基本上有很多的互动,要看专区的话可以去二楼vip那一排圆形的区域,略微还是有不满的地方,就是太嘈杂,也有不少借着展出来推销的商家,不过如果仔细观展,确实可以在其中寻找到自己喜欢的各种作品。 旅博会的时候,也可以在展会上找到很多心仪的产品,如果立即下订单的话会更便宜的价格,现场会有很多的小纪念品赠送,不过里面信号真心不太好,虽然很多是扫码送礼,但是扫码总是失败,还是安心观展来的更实际一些,基本上这里的展出都在1-3个小时之内,有些事禁止拍照的,所以建议看仔细避免不必要的麻烦。 总的来说是比较文青的一个小资之地,虽然败给了人群,如果人少些,果断五颗星...
  • 原名“中苏友好大厦”,是上海的代表性建筑之一。其中经常会举办各种展览(婚庆、房地产、珠宝、玉石、电视剧、电影等等)。
