The coming event will once again welcome longtime group participants from Germany, Italy and US who will all be leading an even larger contingent than in 2010 to exhibit in the International Hall.

Making its debut appearance at interzum guangzhou / CIFM 2011 is the Hardwood States Export Group (HSEG) from the US bringing with them a group of wood producers from The STATE OF MISSISSIPPI in the U.S.

The growth in demand of the furniture production and woodworking industry abroad has been attributed to the remarkable response of manufacturers in the participation of interzum guangzhou / CIFM 2011. According to customs statistics, China’s furniture export for the first seven months of 2010 amounted to US$18.54 billion, a growth of 35% compared with the same period of 2009.
