    Among the attendees were Jonathan Mills, director of the Edinburgh International Festival, Hugo De Greef, secretary general of the European Festival Association, and Alain Par, chief executive officer of the Canadian CINARS International Exchange for the Performing Arts.

    The five-day gathering has created a platform for participants to exchange ideas and discuss possible future collaborations.

    Chinese organizers are expected to ink a string of deals with their foreign counterparts to promote the exchange of performers.

    This year's one-month-long Shanghai International Arts Festival will treat locals to a fusion of world culture, with each day marked with musical or dramatic shows until November 18.

    Grammy-winning Chinese composer Tan Dun will raise the curtain with his critically renowned paper and water concertos on October 19.
