39th edition of CIFF in Guangzhou

Company News, Events


CIFF (China International Furniture Fair), the world’s largest furniture exhibition with its 1.15 million square metres of exhibition space, 6,000 participating companies and 250 thousand visitors from 200 countries worldwide in total (Guangzhou in March and Shanghai in September), once again proves itself to be a key occasion during which all those working in the sector can establish contacts and take advantage of opportunities.


CIFF 2017 in Guangzhou is held in two phases: the first from 18 to 21 March, the second from 28 to 31 March. The figures speak clearly: every year, the spring edition of CIFF, divided into 2 phases in order to cater for the innumerable attendance applications, connects 3,900 major brands and 170,000 specialist visitors. These figures make CIFF an essential business opportunity.


Increasingly dedicated to internationalisation and exchanges between exhibiting companies and buyers, this year the fair will tackle the topic of "Better Life, Better Work", with the aim clearly set on enhancing the values of the growing quality and excellence of Chinese products.


An unmissable event! Unmissable both for those wishing to buy and for those who want to test the potential of the world’s largest market in the furnishing sector. Yes, because in a period recording rapid changes, the Chinese market is truly leaping ahead toward an increasing higher-quality and better-designed product.


The Made in China label connotation is less and less that of poor quality and low price, and instead is now able to provide appropriate and tangible solutions even for a medium-high client sector target. In fact, Chinese producers are proving able to interpret international taste in an innovative manner; many western designers are bringing value and know-how to Chinese producers, and a good number of Chinese designers are acquiring international prestige, and becoming perfect links in the chain between eastern and western taste. This leads to the creation of poetic products that can communicate and evoke ancestral images. Perfect products for every lifestyle, even for the most demanding markets.


CIFF also hosts many international exhibitors coming from several countries including USA, Italy, Germany, Japan, Korea, Turkey, etc.
