Enhanced product layout, new country pavilions and fully sold out International Halls
CIFM / interzum guangzhou 2012 is slated to grow by about 20 percent to reach 130,000 square-meters. The trade fair – Asia's largest in its own right – will be held in co-location with the China International Furniture Fair (CIFF) at the China Import and Export Fair Complex (Pazhou) in Guangzhou from March 27-30 and feature over 1,000 international and domestic exhibitors. Organizers estimate the show to draw over 50,000 visitors.
The event is reportedly selling out fast. Booth space at the international halls was snapped up as early as four months before show opening.
