 The second annual edition of this great event, China International Furniture
Fair, entirely dedicated to “Whole-Home-Decor” will be held from 7th to 10th
September 2013 in Guangzhou, the heart of worldwide furniture
After the enormous success of CIFF 2013 March, which recorded the
presence of about 1,700 national and international exhibitors covering a
surface area of 340,000 m² and 80,000 specialised visitors, about 18,000 of
whom were foreign buyers originating from 165 countries, the curtain is
about to go up on the second appointment of the year with CIFF for
The 32nd edition will take place from 7th to 10th September in the exhibition
area of Guangzhou, the heart of worldwide furniture manufacturing.
More than one thousand companies will be exhibiting over a surface area of
about 200,000 m², offering specialised operators a complete range of
products related to the whole home furnishing system: from modern and
traditional furniture to outdoor living, from general decor to detailed textiles.
An indispensable business platform for international buyers looking for
competitive new products, capable of meeting the needs and desires of an
international market that places an increasingly greater focus on quality
furnishing systems at the right price, but also a unique occasion for those
wishing to harness the opportunities offered by a local market and demand
in continuous expansion.

An indisputably strong player in the market, China is in fact the largest
manufacturer and exporter of furniture and furnishing products in the world.
The value of Chinese production reached 183 billion dollars in 2012, growing
in the 2007-2012 five-year period at an average annual rate of 16%.
Between 2006 and 2011 sales in the domestic market increased by 25% per
year, reaching the figure of 90 billion American dollars (ICE data) by the end
of 2011. The most affluent sector of the market is dominated by high-quality
products and high-end brands, both imported and manufactured locally.2
Part of this market segment is taken up with classic Chinese and Ming style
furnishings reinterpreted in a modern key. There are more than 200
international luxury furnishing brands, mainly originating from Italy, the
United States of America and Spain. If the demand for high-end furnishing
products exceeded 5 billion American dollars in 2012, the expected rate of
growth for the next 10 years should be close to 20% and in any case greater
than the expected rate of growth for the low and mid-end segments.
The largest exhibition system in the world
CIFF (China International Furniture Fair), well-known as Asia’s No.1
Sourcing Platform concerning furniture industry, unequalled all over the
world with an exhibition area of 880,000 m², 4,500 exhibitors about home
furniture, outdoor living, home decor, home textile, office furniture,
machinery and materials, and 190,000 international buyers, holds 2
editions each year: the first, in March, is divided into 2 stages: first home,
then office and manufacturing support; the second, in September, is
dedicated to the home.
The most important exhibition area in Asia
CIFF is held in one of the most functional, modern and beautiful exhibition
centres in the world: the China Import and Export Fair Complex, which
with a covered surface area of 340,000 m² is one of the largest exhibition
areas in Asia. The Guangzhou exhibition centre is easily reached by air with
direct flights arriving from the main international airports. An efficient
underground railway network provides two stops within the exhibition area
and ultra modern 4 and 5 star hotels offer the highest level of hospitality.
One of the main business centres in the world
Visiting CIFF also offers the opportunity to discover Guangzhou, the third
most important city in China, capital of Guangdong, China’s most
industrialised region and a strategic international business centre. A modern
metropolis offering countless opportunities, so much so that 170 of the
“Fortune 500” have already chosen to develop investments in the industrial
and tertiary sectors here. Buildings and infrastructure designed by the most
important international starchitects set in an urban context boasting more
than 2,000 years of history, rich in local culture and traditions that simply
beg to be explored.
