- Dress appropriately. SILMO is a professional event, so dress in business or smart-casual attire. Comfortable shoes are recommended, as the exhibition halls can be quite large.
- Bring business cards. If you’re interested in networking or making connections, bring a stack of business cards to exchange with exhibitors and fellow visitors. This will make it easier to stay in touch after the event.

- There are rest areas in the exhibition hall. The exhibition center is really big and there is a lot of walking to be done. You don’t have to worry about being hungry because of the exhibition or running out of water because you’re thirsty, all of these are redundant, the exhibition organizer has already prepared everything for you, providing desserts, coffee, water and so on, which you can enjoy at any time. Of course, you can bring your own snacks and water cups, which is more convenient.
- Filming and live streaming are allowed. If you are a photography enthusiast or live stream broadcaster, please bring your filming equipment and be ready to shoot and interview. There will also be plenty of live entertainment, so remember not to miss it.
- Stay updated. Check for any updates or changes to the event schedule or exhibitor list in the weeks leading up to SILMO 2023. This will ensure you have the most accurate and up-to-date information.
