Guangzhou, China / 30 October 2014
Following the news of the addition of a new exhibition hall to Asia’s largest and most comprehensive woodworking and furniture production trade fair, the organizers of CIFM / interzum guangzhou recently revealed the purpose of the added space.
Slated to happen from March 28 – April 1, 2015 the 11-year old event will continue to be held alongside the China International Furniture Fair.

The upholstered furniture market demand is closely tied to the real estate market, and with the accelerating urbanization, growth in urban population and the intensifying residential development in emerging markets in recent years, the region is increasingly becoming the world's new growth market for upholstered furniture.
