CIFF SHANGHAI 2019
Spreading international ideas and trends to reinforce the value of design in the furniture industry in China; offering international brands a privileged channel for accessing the most important furniture market in the world; creating a global furniture community: these, for Yang Huawei, general manager of China Foreign Trade Macalline Exhibition Co. Ltd., are the objectives of the 44th edition of CIFF Shanghai.
Over 1,500 exhibitors representing the full range of the furniture sector, from the home to the office to the outdoors, from decor to furnishing textiles to machinery for the furniture industry, will be present at the Shanghai Hongqiao National Exhibition & Convention Center from September 8 to 11.
CIFF expects over 150,000 visitors from 200 regions and countries worldwide, providing them with a unique offering of new products and design events grouped under the theme “A Paradigm for Global Living.”
Among the events, the forum Designed for Humans: From Alvaro Siza’s Modernism into the Digital Future, organized by CIFF and Aedes Architecture Forum, will serve as an exchange and networking event to allow insights into global as well as Chinese strategies and applications in terms of design and production.
