China Time Memory Exhibition aims to educate its audience on China’s proud and impressive cultural history, highlighting its traditions and showcasing the progression of Chinese civilisation. Through Chinese art craft history, the exhibition uses the unique charm of Chinese creations to tell the stories of intangible cultural heritage in Tianjin, located in North China. "We are committed to showcasing China’s intangible cultural heritage to the word,” says Shi Chuan, Vice President of ROCKCHECK Group. “At same time we aim to integrate resources through innovation and development so we can promote a positive and healthy lifestyle to our audience.” The Exhibition also hopes that through its innovative techniques in highlighting China’s past, this will inspire others when tackling issues of cross-cultural differences in other fields such as business. It emphasises how lessons learnt from the past are still relevant for the future.
