In the coming years, we’ll be making persistent efforts to continue our participation.

    "This is our first participation in interzum guangzhou, and is also the only furniture-related event in South China we exhibit at. In addition to our own exhibition booth, we’ve also applied for a special display area, showcasing the works of a design competition that we co-hosted with the Shanghai Jiaotong University, which has also played a role in our promotion. All in all, the show is good. The service of the organizers is very professional. On top of that, holding interzum guangzhou at the same time as the China International Furniture Fair has also played a part in promoting the event."

We believe in the interzum brand and have been cooperating with Koelnmesse for over 20 years, so have many of our friends. So when interzum came to Guangzhou, we came here as well.

We knew the name of interzum cologne and trust the brand, so we’ve come to interzum guangzhou to explore our business in China. Actually we have participated in other furniture-related exhibitions in China before, but were not satisfied with them. We have brought our latest high-tech products this year, and do regard interzum guangzhou as a good platform to promote our latest products in China."

We have been exhibiting at interzum cologne and feel very good about it, so because of the interzum brand, we’ve come to Guangzhou. There are many visitors from Southeast Asia this year, but what surprises us most is that there are also a lot from Japan, Korea and Africa. Our main participation objectives are brand promotion and to gain publicity, and of course, to be able to close deals. interzum guangzhou is a very good platform. We mainly participate in trade fairs abroad and feel that the level of interzum guangzhou is equivalent to those."

    Duerkopp Adler AG
    Mr. Heiko Ultes
    Product Management

    "This year, I see a majority of overseas buyers. We are happy about the quality of buyers, as most of them are real customers. The location (Guangzhou) is really great, many companies in Asia from the furniture business exhibit or visit here and interzum guangzhou is getting more and more important. These are the main reasons why we choose interzum guangzhou. It is the only fair we participate in among all the furniture fairs in China."

    Adler Sewing Machinery Co.,Ltd.
    Mr. Sky Liang
    Director, Sales Department

    "This year's interzum guangzhou is generally good and we have received about 100 professional buyers daily. We have been participating in interzum guangzhou for seven or eight consecutive years and have gotten even better results this year than in previous years. We have a large product portfolio and participate in many different exhibitions annually but they are not as professional and large scale in comparison."

    Pfaff Industrial Hongkong Co., Ltd.

All along, interzum guangzhou’s management and services have been very good, and the organizer is very professional. Overall, we are very satisfied with the trade fair and will continue to support interzum guangzhou."

    MIRKA Trading(Shanghai)Co., Ltd.
    Mr. Jerry Fang
    Sales Manager
    "This is our second year at interzum guangzhou. We chose to come here due to Guangzhou’s superior geographical location and the large scale of the event, which attracts high quality visitors from all over the world. interzum guangzhou has been very popular over the years while visitor traffic at trade fairs in Shanghai and Beijing are both decreasing these few years, with not many effective customers. The show has been oversubscribed for years so we get less space than our applied area in the end. Overall, the show is pretty good. Next year we will be participating again, hoping to get a bigger booth."

    Mr. Shi Wencai
    Regional Manager

    Mr. Nino Bacci
    Asia Sales Manager

    "This is the ninth year we’ve participated in interzum guangzhou and next year will be the tenth. It is a long time. This year, there are more visitors than last year. At the moment, for us, China is our most important market. We participate in two furniture-related shows in China and this one is much better. As for me, when considering if to participate in a show, I have to see what companies are participating. If I see many manufacturers and competitors, it means the fair is important."

    RIEPE GmbH & Co. KG
    Mr. Francis Brosseau
    Technical Sales Manager

    "Customer numbers this year is really amazing. We never thought we can have so many customers, it’s pretty good. interzum guangzhou is the biggest and the most important event we participate in in China. We care much about the visitors and we want to keep contact with our customers. The show is really clean and professional and service is good. When we came here, everything was ready. Next year, I want to be here again."

    Leuco Precision Tooling (Taicang) Co., Ltd.
    Mrs. Wang Dan
    Assistant to General Manager & Marketing Executive

    "We selected interzum guangzhou mainly because there are more customers for flooring, and furniture here. The other reason is that our partners are also exhibiting here and our products are complementary."
