Just wondering if I would qualify for the 144 Visa exemption as I am attending a trade show for 3 days in Shanghai.

no. You won't qualify.You're flying SYD-HKG-PVG-HKG-SYD. China only looks at HKG-PVG-HKG, which is to and from the same immigration area, so not a "transit" under the 72/144 hour TWOV program. SYD-HKG-PVG-SYD would qualify.China does not care how long you are in the other country for.A SYD-xHKG-PVG-xNRT-SYD routing would be valid. China will see it at HKG-xPVG-NRT, even if you are only in Hong Kong for 90 minutes and Narita for 2 hours - which the airlines would view as a SYD-PVG-SYD trip.
