CIFF Shanghai Scheduled for Sept. 3-6
The 48th edition of CIFF Shanghai will be held at the National Exhibition & Convention Centre (NECC) in Hongqiao, Sept. 3-6, 2021.
Founded in 1998 in Guangzhou, CIFF takes place twice a year, in spring and autumn. In 2015, the organizers moved the September edition from Guangzhou to Shanghai, thereby markedly distinguishing the two editions, which attract distinct markets and visitor targets.
Together, the two editions involve over 6,000 of the top Chinese and international brands each year and host over 500,000 trade visitors from around the world. Throughout the pandemic, CIFF has suffered no decline and the latest edition of CIFF Guangzhou reported a 20% increase compared to the pre-COVID period. Accordingly, there will be over 2,000 exhibitors at CIFF Shanghai this year, occupying an area of 400,000 square metres, and over 150,000 buyers, mainly from China due to the COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the Chinese government. Precisely these figures demonstrate the success of CIFF, which keeps its numbers unchanged despite the drop in foreign visitors.
The 48th CIFF Shanghai will be business-oriented, with its primary focus on the value of design and the culture of good living, expanded and interpreted across all sectors of the fair, from Home Furniture to Homedécor & Hometextile, from Outdoor & Leisure to Office Furniture to Furniture Machinery & Woodworking Machinery.
