Furniture World News Desk on 2/28/2023

The 51st CIFF Guangzhou 2023 is ready to open its doors to all the players in the furniture industry in March. As a global trade fair hosted by a direct subsidiary of China's Ministry of Commerce, CIFF is a comprehensive platform that covers the entire chain of the furniture industry, opening global trade for China's furniture industry.

This year's CIFF will be easier to attend than the previous few years, as China is now permitting travelers from abroad entry  without centralized isolation. Inbound passengers need only show a negative result from a molecular test done 48 hours before departure.

The 51st CIFF Guangzhou 2023 will take place in two phases at the Canton Fair Complex in Guangzhou Pazhou, covering a total exhibition area of 700,000 square meters (7.5 plus million square feet) and hosting 4,000 companies and brands.

The first phase, between March 18-21, is dedicated to the Home Furniture industry. Area A will showcase home space, upholstered furniture and the "Design Spring CIFF Contemporary Design Exhibition". Area B will focus on upholstery, dining and living room furniture; this aims to provide domestic and foreign buyers a one-stop shop for large-volume purchases and for OEM and ODM products. Area C is for home decor and home textile; it will offer domestic and foreign buyers a full range of soft furnishing products and design services. The Poly World Trade Center Expo is for outdoor leisure, covering outdoor furniture, sunshade systems, leisure camping and other outdoor categories in full, creating a comprehensive sourcing platform with a leisure-style outdoor experience.

The second phase between March 28-31, CIFM/interzum guangzhou will use the newly built hall in Area D to focus on the Office and Commercial Space sectors. The overall exhibition scale will be larger than that in 2019. Office and Commercial space will host top brands from home and abroad and lead the trend of green and low carbon.

The upcoming CIFF is China's first global furniture fair this year. It will give full play to its full-supply-chain advantages and build a communication platform for greater cooperation and business opportunities.
