The international meeting industry constitutes the important part for modern service industry and has important impact on economic development. It acts as the bridge and link between production and consumption. In the development process of world economy, international meeting centers play a more and more important role. The paper investigated research on the economic effects of international meeting industry and discussed the important significance of international meeting industry from the contribution of standards. As far as the first Silk Road (Dunhuang) International Cultural Expo is concerned, if there would develop or form some basic standards for cultural exchanges, then this Cultural Expo may have the inestimable influence to China as well as countries around the world. To achieve this goal, we should pay more attention to the cooperation in the fields of standards beside other important aspects. The wide and complete standards cooperation among countries along the Silk road may have important influence to the economic development of countries around the world.
