Input and Output
The organizers have rent a large hall to hold this exhibition and invited many enterprises to join in this fair.

Environmental Forces and Trends
Cultural forces are the main elements that affect the event. Growing cultural diversity means that organizations have to examine their composition, values, and activities ----in short, do a cultural sensitivity audit. Events must be proactive to meet the needs of economically and physically disadvantaged persons, and to ensure cultural or racial equality. People go to attend this fair not only because they take pride in Chinese culture but also they, as Chinese people, have the obligation to know more about the Chinese elements.
A trend in Leisure and Cultural Pursuits is another reason that makes people attends this fair. Nowadays, people are willing to spend more time in visiting museums and art galleries. They enjoy exploring the world of arts and it’s a great thing to improve their arts sentiment.
My Personal Reaction
I like this successful fair very much and it did leave a great impression to me as well as all people attending this exhibition. Although it took me some time to admire all those exhibits, I could learn a great deal of knowledge from them, which arouse my sincere love to our great mother China. As known to all, China enjoys super-strong cultural resources. With its fifty-six national minorities living together under diverse cultures, China is not only large in size, but with rich resources. Both its underground resources and tourist resources have strong international competitiveness. All of the conditions will make China more powerful and become an advanced country with diverse cultures.
Also I have some suggestions for the manager of the event. It’s a little
pity that I couldn’t see brilliant advertisements in anyplace and it means the event lacks a bit of propagating. The organizers should make more posters and increase the influence. However, after all, this is a successful fair among the same sort of events.
