Asia’s largest and most influential furniture production and woodworking trade fair - CIFM / interzum guangzhou 2016 - is poised to be held over four days starting from 2016 instead of five in the last two editions.
This strategic move is prompted by feedback from the industry, which will also see the co-located China International Furniture Fair (CIFF) shorten by a day and take place over the same period, from March 28 – 31, in the southern Chinese manufacturing hub of Guangzhou.
The shorter show days is expected to be more in line with the participation habits of international exhibitors provide convenience for buyers with more concentrated sourcing and reduce participation cost for exhibitors, with the aim of building a more robust trading platform.
The 2016 edition will focus on enhancing product category definition as well as providing clearer and more detailed visitor guides, while a series of engaging seminars, forums and other concurrent events will continue to enrich all participants.
Founded in 2004, CIFM / interzum guangzhou builds on the leading position of interzum in Cologne, Germany, in the global furniture manufacturing industry. As an integral part of the prestigious CIFF, CIFM / interzum guangzhou has developed into the most comprehensive flagship trade event of its kind in the region to attract the participation of more than 1,200 exhibitors and over 62,000 visitors from around the world.
