CIFF Guangzhou breaks records

An extraordinary edition of the China International Furniture fair (CIFF) in Guangzhou recorded the highest number of exhibitors and visitors ever. CIFF is an ever-evolving exhibition event with a key role in the development of the global furniture industry, promoting design and innovation and boosting consumption.

A total area measuring 8,50,000 square metres; 4,700 exhibitors (11.8% more than the all-time pre-pandemic peak in 2019); 3,63,449 trade visitors (22.06% more than in 2019); and 51,205 international visitors from 178 countries (+43.11% compared to 2019).

Record-breaking numbers were also recorded last March at the Canton Fair Complex in Guangzhou, further solidifying CIFF’s position as the world’s largest furniture fair and the most important and comprehensive business and product research platform in Asia.

The 53rd CIFF 2024 showed four major improvements in terms of scale, product range, offering quality and business opportunities, providing a unique opportunity to learn about the latest trends in design, discover the novel aspects of furniture Made in China and its business potential, and create solid, profitable business relationships.

CIFF Guangzhou comprised even better-designed booths offering products of growing sophistication in terms of materials and details, responding perfectly to recent market demands.

An event tailored to the needs of influential buyers from all the world’s major markets, CIFF also attracted countless interior designers interested in discovering new trends and the highest quality standards for both the home and the workplace.

Visitors were met with an extremely wide range of exhibitions, lectures and forums involving famous designers, journalists and curators. This not only created an efficient communication platform positioned to lead the development of new trends but also provided important networking opportunities.

The concurrent CIFM/Interzum Guangzhou 2024 was a high-level event focused on the supply chain, presenting cutting-edge solutions in the production of machinery, materials and components indispensable for the increasingly smart evolution of the furniture industry.

The materials section placed special emphasis on original surface design, proposing new trends in furniture and interior design. The hardware section set new standards in the production of high-end furniture for ever smarter homes.

With a focus on the use of artificial intelligence and integrated solutions, the machinery section became the benchmark for innovation and digital transformation in the furniture industry.
