Smart robots in the shape of Jinbao, the expo mascot, will also lend a hand, staff at the National Conference and Exhibition Center said on Wednesday.

032"I’m here" directions marked in English, Spanish, Russian, French and Arabic are a new feature on map boards in the venue. Directions for entrances, underground garage entrances, public transit hubs, car parking areas and subway station entrances are also marked in the five languages.

Distances to the squares and exhibition halls inside the venue are also marked on map and sign boards.

035Around 1,200 signs will be modified and some 600 added with multiple languages, according to the venue's operation center.
 

To guests who don’t speak Chinese, interpretation devices can be rented at about 80 spots in the venue. Last year, there were just 16 such spots.
 

As last year, students studying foreign languages at Shanghai International Studies University and language experts from translation companies will be on standby to help visitors who speak lesser spoken languages.

037The “Jinbao” robots, tailor-made for the event, will be in action at about 20 spots, providing navigation and event calendar information.
 

This year, the venue will have several rest zones for visitors with drinking water facilities. Another 600 chairs, where visitors can charge their phones, will be added to the current 400 in the venue.

036The expo will be held from November 5 to 10, 2019. The first expo last year drew over 3,600 businesses from 151 countries and regions and over 800,000 visitors.
