With a total area of 750 000m², the China International Furniture Fair (CIFF) Guangzhou 2021 is about to stage the entire furniture supply chain in March in Pazhou, Guangzhou. The show and is expected to host about 4 000 exhibitors and more than 300 000 visitors.

CIFF is dedicated to combining business with the culture of good design, and this year CIFF Guangzhou 2021 will offer more than 20 inspiring exhibitions and a great number of conferences involving companies, academies and schools, as well as famous designers.

According to the CIFF Guangzhou, this exhibition is the voice for the most current design trends and notably keeps on innovating by establishing a programme named ‘CIFF Designers’ Circle’ for better interaction with the design community and better exploration into design trends, gathering the main brands in the sector and promoting innovation through premium design displays and authoritative awards. The drive towards the search for new products, new methods, new formats, new requests, and new markets has always been strong and leads CIFF to constantly introduce innovative ideas into its format.

Being the world’s only home furnishing exhibition that represents the entire industry chain, CIFF (Guangzhou) covers five sectors including Home Furniture, Office Show, Homedecor& Hometexile, Outdoor & Leisure, and CIFM/interzum Guangzhou, and has been a one-stop purchasing service platform for global trade. Driven to always offer the best to those who choose it, for the March 2021 edition CIFF Guangzhou will also provide B2B Matchmaking and the integration of both online and offline events aimed at promoting the selection through a strong commercial function, accelerating the formation of a new development model in which the internal market and the international market promote each other.

During the first phase from 18th to 21st Marchthe whole world of furniture will be explored, from indoor to outdoor, from furniture to accessories, from upholstery to interior decoration, offering insights and suggestions.

Home Furniture is in fact a ‘one-stop’ supply platform dedicated to both the internal market and export market, which offers original and diverse solutions for the customisation of all domestic environments, premium design furniture, and upholstered furniture.

The Design sector is of particular importance and will be made even more valuable by the presence of the event ‘Design Spring’ Contemporary Chinese Furniture Design Show which will showcase originally-designed Chinese furniture to promote the development of Chinese design and offer a guide to visitors so that they may better understand the current level of design achieved. While the Design Dream Show will present the domestic space  scenarios designed to offer a greater quality of life.

Homedecor & Hometextile presents the new trends in interior decoration: furnishings, lighting, decorative paintings, and artificial flowers. The China Interiors & Decorations Conference will bring more new inspirations for home furnishings.

Outdoor & Leisure focuses on the outdoor lifestyle by offering tables and chairs for leisure time, shading equipment, garden decorations, barbeque items, and materials for the exteriors of homes. Original Design Hall, as well as the Global Garden Lifestyle Festival, will be on display, leading the outdoor lifestyle into ordinary people’s homes.

While the second phase, from 28th to 31st March, will feature the Office Show, the largest office furniture fair in the world, which will offer a complete overview of both the work environment and commercial public spaces, as well as medical, healthcare, and learning environments: office furniture and seating, smart office solutions, seating for public spaces, furniture for healthcare facilities and those dedicated to the elderly, desks and equipment for schools will be presented in response to the demands of fast and constant evolution.

Two exceptional events, The Office Environment Theme Pavilion, the thematic pavilion that leads guests to explore the needs of the younger generation in the office world, and 2030+ International Future Office, the forum jointly organised by CIFF Guangzhou and China National Furniture Association that brings together the world’s leading office furniture brands alongside contemporary and avant-garde works of art.

CIFM/interzum Guangzhou 2021 will host hundreds of premium machinery and woodworking machinery completely covering the entire industry of cutting-edge equipment, materials, and technology needed for furniture manufacturing such as hardware accessories, cabinet plates, edging, and treatment of surfaces.

There is therefore great anticipation for the 47th CIFF Guangzhou 2021 to respond to the international markets’ new needs, understand global furnishing trends, and seize concrete business opportunities!
