The first phase of the 53rd CIFF Guangzhou will take place from 18th-21st March, and will be dedicated to home furnishing across three sectors: Home Furniture; Home Decoration & Home Textile; and Outdoor Furniture, Sunshade & Leisure.

In CIFF’s Home Furniture segment, living and dining furniture will play a significant role, alone making this world’s largest trade fair dedicated to this sector. Over 600 exhibitors will occupy 17 halls and 150,000 sqm of exhibition space, relocated from this year to Area C of the Canton Fair Complex and Area E of the PWTC Expo, following the redefinition of the event’s concept and the reorganisation of the exhibition’s general layout.

This segment will be particularly focused on satisfying the requests of international buyers, purchasing managers for large contract projects and interior designers, who will be able to find a complete range of products and every type of ‘one-stop’ solution for the furnishing of dining and living rooms – from dining tables to chairs, sideboards to stools, coffee tables, TV stands, recliners and more.

International businesses will also be able to find OEM/ODM services in this area, and the possibility of starting productive and commercial collaborations.

The eight halls of Area C will be dedicated to: Modern Furniture (14.1 and 15.1); Living Room Furniture (14.2); Living Room Design (15.2); Living Room Space (16.2); and Living Room/Modern Furniture (14.3-16.3). 

Meanwhile, the six halls of Area E will be dedicated to: Dining Room Design (E1); Dining Space (E2); and Dining Furniture (E3-E6). The CE Area Promenade path promises to make the show easier to navigate for international buyers, who will also discover opportunities to meet and negotiate in the dedicated Buyer Bar.

Phase 1 of CIFF Guangzhou will be followed by phase 2 from 28th-31st March, covering office, commercial and hotel furniture, plus furniture machinery and raw materials.
