Despite the potential complications, having staged a successful edition this summer, CIFF Guangzhou’s organiser says that next year’s March edition will run as planned – across two phases, from 18th-21st and 28th-31st.

With the successful conclusion of the 45th China International Furniture Fair (Guangzhou) in July, despite the global challenges presented by Covid-19, the forthcoming 47th edition is expected to run as planned, within its traditional timeslot.

As usual, CIFF will be held in two phases, organised according to product sector: the first (CIFF-Home Furniture) dedicated to home furniture, decor and textiles, outdoor and leisure furniture; and the second (CIFF-Office Show and CIFM/interzum guangzhou) focused on office, commercial and hotel furniture, plus furniture machinery, components and raw materials.

To facilitate the industry’s development against the backdrop of the pandemic, CIFF Guangzhou has repositioned itself with a new theme, ‘Design Trend, International Trade and Full Supply Chain’, and promises to present an innovative exhibition that benefits from a combination of high-level curation, local character and international vision.

As one of the world’s first choices for product launches and promotion to the international industry, the 47th CIFF (Guangzhou) will gather top brands from across the supply chain, presenting the latest trends to meet the sourcing needs of China’s domestic and overseas markets. 

With direct invitations to more than a million would-be professional visitors, CIFF typically attracts more than 300,000 suppliers, designers, buyers, real estate developers, retailers and other professional visitors from all over the world. 

To complement its exhibitor offer, CIFF (Guangzhou) will introduce innovative content, quality and design. The optimisation of the exhibition’s layout, plus the presentation of inspiring, content-rich design events, are set to make the event even more appealing to the global furnishing industry.

These will include the second Design Spring Contemporary Chinese Furniture Design Fair, the 2030+ International Future Office Exhibition, the Global Furniture Industry Trend Conference, The Design Dream Show, Ten Parallel Space Exhibition-Easy Party, Guangzhou’s Day & Night New Consumer Trendy Play, Top Design 100, CMF Trend Lab, My Dad Is a Designer, and more.
