The organizer shifts the show dates of Kitchen Furniture and Hometextile to the first phase of CIFF to set up a more convenient and effective sourcing platform. The related industry players will join hands and create the synergy effect by meeting the common needs of the buyers together.
More space creates more opportunities
As the furniture production boomed in China in the recent years, the demand for the exhibition booth of CIFF is continually over the supply because of the venue limitation. Correspondingly, Complex C of China Import and Export Fair Pazhou Complex to be completed by the end of September, 2008, will be put into use for CIFF 2009 March. Complex C consists of 12 halls, covering about 90,000SQM. Well connected by a sky-bridge, Complex A, B, and C of Pazhou Complex will become a mega integrated exhibition center, the second largest in the world with an exhibition area of over 340,000SQM.
The total scale of CIFF 2009 March is expected to be 500,000SQM, which provides the prospect as the No.1 furniture exhibition throughout the world. In details, the first phase will employ Complex A, B and C of about 300,000SQM, while the second phase, using 21 halls of Complex A and B, will be 200,000SQM. The new Complex will offer more opportunities to the furniture enterprises. Furthermore, it creates the possibilities of better booth arrangement, presentation and the synergy advantage of the relative vertical shows.
Expertise consolidates the family shows
In the aspect of organization, CIFF will adhere to the management concept of "Professional Shows Only". More famous brand of enterprises from different areas with diversified products will be invited and displayed at CIFF2009 March. Creativity and specialty will be encouraged.

The classical furniture area will employ 8 halls, maintaining the exhibition scale of classical upholstery furniture and European-style furniture and enlarging the proportion of American-style and Neo-classical furniture. Homedecor & Housewares China will include 2 halls, playing an important role in "Whole-Home-Decor" alongside with the Hometextile-Intertextile Guangzhou 2009 and CeramEx China 2009. Outdoor & Leisure Guangzhou will enrich the content of outdoor living & leisure and expand the exhibition area of gardening, sun-shade and BBQ equipment.
