Over the last 18 years, starting at zero to its current status, the 798 Art Zone has become a globally influential art hub. In 2019, more than 9.55 million visitors came to 798, hosting more than 3000 art exhibitions and commercial brand events. In order to improve the visitors’ experience in the area, we continue to support art practices, ameliorate our accommodations and services to promote the development of the industry’s ecology. On the occasion of Chinese New Year, I would like to thank you for your continuous attention and support for 798, and wish everyone an abundance of fortune, prosperity and luck for the year of the Rat.
