The organizers of one Chinese auto show, the Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition, banned female models and child models at the 2015 event. There are no known bans of "car babes" at other Chinese auto shows such as Beijing International Automotive Exhibition.
Car models were banned at Auto Shanghai due to the movement led by President Xi Jinping to reduce prostitution, pornography and other perceived negative influences on the population. The biennial Shanghai auto show known as Auto Shanghai takes place on alternating years with the Beijing show known as Auto China. Another auto show in the country is Auto Guangzhou.
