Beijing is gearing up for the China International Fair for Trade in Services scheduled for early September, which will have both online and offline exhibitions, organizers said Tuesday.

By Tuesday, 141 international organizations, embassies in China, commerce associations and institutions are expected to participate in this year's event, a major comprehensive exhibition in service trade, said Sun Yao, deputy head of the Beijing Municipal Commerce Bureau at a press briefing.

Overseas guests, exhibitors and merchants will mainly attend the online exhibitions and all types of entities in China will mainly participate in the offline exhibitions, Sun said.

The fair covers areas including cultural trade, tourism services, financial services, winter sports and robots. It includes four summit forums and more than 100 seminars and promotional events.

Last year, the value of tentative deals reached at the fair topped 105 billion U.S. dollars.
