2018 has definitely been an important year for CIFF; a fundamental stage of its growth, and also perhaps of the growth of China in general, because of the strategic alliance established between two furniture sector giants.
The 42nd edition of CIFF Shanghai, which will be held at the National Exhibition & Convention Center (Shanghai), the “NECC” Hongqiao, from 10 to 13 September 2018, is now just around the corner and will be conducted jointly by CFTE (China Foreign Trade Guangzhou Exhibition General Corporation) and Red Star Macalline.
Red Star Macalline is the undisputed leader in the Chinese furniture distribution sector. The Red Star Macalline statistics are impressive: bolstered by a domestic home furnishing market worth 4 trillion RMB, it manages 260 shopping centres scattered all over China, providing a total display surface area of more than 15 million square metres, and annual sales of more than 78 billion RMB.
The records and figures of CIFF, the world’s largest furniture exhibition, and in any case the most influential in Asia, covering a total annual surface area of 1.15 million square metres, speak for themselves. The collaboration between these two sector leaders also does not require any further description and will definitely generate results that have never before been recorded and that are in any case difficult to predict.
Just think of the Business Negotiation Areas, where companies attending CIFF and Red Star Macalline retailers will meet and will be able to immediately match up with each other and establish effective relationships.
Founded in 1998, China International Furniture Fair, famous as CIFF, takes place semi-annually in Guangzhou, March and Shanghai, September. With the successful experience of past 38 sessions, CIFF has been well accepted as the Weatherglass of China’s Furniture Industry, Asia’s Furniture Sourcing Center and the No.1 Platform for the World Class.
In 2016, the annual exhibition scale will reach 1,150,000SQM with the participation of over 6,000 quality exhibitors and 250,000 professional buyers from about 200 countries and regions.
