The Third Hebei Province Tourism Industry Development Conference was held from July 18 to July 20 in Chengde, once a famous resort where emperors in the Qing Dynasty would spend the summer and hunt for fun. The conference was hosted by the Communist Party of China (CPC) Hebei Provincial Committee and the People's Government of Hebei Province, organized by the CPC Chengde Municipal Committee, the Chengde Municipal People's Government, and the Hebei Tourism Development Committee.

The theme of the conference is "Ecotourism and Green Development". The mascots, a pair of cartoon sika deer named "Batu" and "Saiya" are based on the traditional Chinese auspicious animal "deer", dressed in Manchu traditional costumes. Batu, which means "strong will", reflects bravery and perseverance; Saiya, which means "beautiful", indicates poise and glamour. Batu and Saiya open their arms to the guests at home and abroad, representing Chengde people's hospitality.

Over one thousand of domestic and foreign guests attended the conference. They visited the 20 brand new tourism projects of six categories along the national "No.1 Scenic Avenue".
