The fourth Yangtze River Delta International Cultural Industries Expo kicked off on Nov 16 at the National Exhibition Center in Shanghai.

The expo, slated to run until Nov 19, serves as a major platform for cultural exchanges and cooperation in the delta region, providing valuable opportunities for cultural enterprises to showcase their achievements and explore potential business opportunities.

A total of 30 companies from Taizhou, East China's Zhejiang province, participated in the expo, bringing over 120 exhibits showcasing the unique local culture, such as the pioneering culture of Dachen Island, Hehe culture and Song culture, as well as the city's digital development achievements.

Visitors to the expo can explore a wide range of exhibits, including needle-punched boneless flower lanterns, spring bamboo carvings, glass carvings, and vine crafts.

One fascinating highlight is the "X" coffee ground chair developed by Taizhou-headquartered Starway International Home Furnishings Co Ltd. This innovative chair is made from coffee grounds processed with PP particles, preserving the texture, color, and aroma of coffee, while featuring a unique texture.

For soccer enthusiasts, Zhejiang Ostrich Soccer Culture Development Co Ltd, another company based in Taizhou, presented a digital soccer coach product enabled by artificial intelligence and robotics technologies. The product can be utilized to assess children's abilities and enhance training effectiveness.
