CIFF is both the main point of reference for the rapidly evolving Chinese furniture market and the most important business platform in all of Asia, offering opportunities and solutions to all of the most important professionals in the furniture industry around the world.
From 2014, the March edition of CIFF (China International Furniture Fair, Guangzhou) will last 5 days instead of 4 per stage. The extended duration is testament to the great success of past editions of the show and its constant growth, meeting the needs of exhibitors and visitors who need more time to learn about new products and develop their business.
The first stage, from 18th to 22nd March, will be dedicated to home furniture, outdoor and leisure furniture, homedecor & hosewares and hometextile.
The second stage, from 28th March to 1st April, will be dedicated to office furniture, commercial furniture, hotel furniture, as well as machinery and materials for the furniture industry.
More than 3,800 exhibitors are expected to arrive at Guangzhou for the March edition of CIFF, occupying a total exhibition area of 680,000 m², and about 200,000 professional operators are expected from all over the world.
The September edition of CIFF in 2014 will last four days and will be held from 5th to 8th September. It will be dedicated to the same sectors as the first stage in March.
After the success of CIFF-Home Furniture 2013 (March), which registered the participation of 3648 exhibitors, occupying a surface area of 680,000 m², and saw about 150,000 qualified professionals attend from over 160 countries including the Germany, France, Italy, UK, Russia, USA, Australia, Brazil, Turkey, etc., we expect the next edition of CIFF-Home Furniture (March) to be better than ever!.

The upholstered furniture sector will be rearranged to create an area (Hall 12.2) dedicated exclusively to beds and mattresses, where Chinese and international companies renowned for their “sleep culture” can exhibit their products.
