China-ASEAN Expo was established in 2003 and has been held for 15 sessions so far. In the context of China’s comprehensive implementation of the “Belt and Road” strategy and the integration and upgrading of China-ASEAN international cooperation, it has made outstanding contributions to the economic and trade development of Nanning and Guangxi, as well as friendly political, economic and cultural exchanges with ASEAN countries. 
Based on the CIPP evaluation model, this article explores the improvement of the management capabilities of the China-ASEAN Expo by evaluating the background, input, process management and results of the China-ASEAN Expo, and attempts to provide effective improvement plans for the future.
