In 2018, in order to respond to the call of the 19th National Congress, deepen the supply-side reform, and follow the adaptability and flexibility of the supply structure to the changes in demand, the organizers first created the theme of Classic & innovation gallery, and the live show was well received.
In 2019, the theme display was fully upgraded to focus on the whole category of the hardware industry, targeting the industry's cutting-edge technology and quality hardware products, allowing classics and innovations to be displayed on the same stage. A voting section was set up in the thematic exhibition area, inviting professional visitors to vote on site. Professional visitors stopped by to participate in the selection and vote for the most satisfactory products in their mind. On the morning of the third day of the exhibition, the organisers selected the top three most popular products through the number of votes and awarded them the "China International Hardware Show Best Popular Product Award".
