Sinostar International Ltd. is a Hong Kong-based company specialized in organizing industrial exhibitions, publishing bilingual (Chinese & English) technical magazines and offering direct marketing services to a clientele list worldwide.

Sinostar International Ltd. has been organizing the "Surface Finishing" & "Coatings" series of Exhibition since 1983. From 1996 onwards, these two exhibitions have been held concurrently and now alternates its venue annually between the cities of Guangzhou and Shanghai, P.R. China.

Both bilingual magazines are published in Hong Kong, with major circulation targeted directly to the relevant industry sectors in China and other parts of the world.
