On the one hand, the conference was a gathering of "the people," attracting thousands of quality cultural and creative works from various parts of the world to seek recognition from the "Big Dipper Award" at the front end of the industrial chain; on the other hand, it launched an IP Incubation Fund totaling 300 million yuan for the end of the industrial chain, forming an incubation ecology encompassing "cultural and creative people + creative works and projects + funds." The Ordos local government plays the role of an organizer and supports the industrial chain via a series of opening and win-win policies, guiding and safeguarding the development of the cultural and creative industry.
