Strong emphasis on upholstery & bedding segment
Guangzhou, China / 12 January 2015
As Asia’s largest woodworking and furniture production trade fair, interzum guangzhou has been the chosen place by the industry to size up the competition, which was why it came as no surprise as organizer, Koelnmesse, announced recently that the annual event, which will run from March 28 to April 1, is sold out months before its opening. This is despite the addition of a new hall, expanding the floor space from 130,000 to 140,000 square meters – the largest in the 11-year history of the event.
Renowned names Homag, IMA, SCM, FGV, Titus, Cyber Lock, Okin Refined, Boyteks Tekstil, Bekaert, H.B. Fuller, Schattdecor, Rehau, SIGE, Italiana Ferramenta, Leggett & Platt , Kleiberit, Surteco, Alvic, Leitz, Freud, Mechatronic, Leuco and Xinyada will continue to be mainstays of the event, while 2015 will also welcome debuting exhibitors, including Fibromade from Portugal, Hans Weber and Zimmer from Germany, Permo from Italy and Japan’s Terao.
National pavilions slated to make their appearance include countries like Germany, US/Canada, Italy, Turkey, Chile, and Spain as well as association-led groups by the American Hardwood Export Council and Canada Wood respectively. Among them, pavilions from Canada Wood, Chile and Turkey will spot bigger booth space take-up than in previous years.
Spotlighting China’s position as the world's largest producer and consumer of upholstered furniture, which possesses great market demand for related raw materials and production equipment, a 10,000 square meter-hall - Hall 12.1 - dedicated to bedding production and woodworking machinery has been added and will host show regulars Adler, Duerkopp, Robatech, Baomo, Blue-vent and the Italian pavilion under its roof. The new hall is also aimed at further refining product segmentation, consolidating related exhibits and facilitating exhibitor-visitor interaction.
Titled "Behind the Furniture Industry’s Progress – Passing On Technology and Innovation in Furniture Production", an official forum to be held during the trade fair will serve to reveal the role technological innovation in furniture production plays in promoting the upgrading of the global furniture industry, and introduce innovative furniture manufacturing technologies in 2015 and analyze as well as predict development trends.
