CIFM / interzum guangzhou 2024 delivers exceptional results

13 June 2024

CIFM / interzum guangzhou 2024 came to a close in its namesake city after a four-day run starting on 28 March. Set against the backdrop of China’s ambitious drive to modernise its industrial base and accelerate the development of new production capacity, this year’s event, with the apt theme of “Surpass”, exceeded expectations in terms of scale, international impact and industry engagement, delivering substantial momentum to the furniture production and manufacturing sector.

 

Record-breaking scale

At nearly 180,000 square metres, the exhibition area was 24.2% larger than in 2019 and hosted 1,586 companies showcasing new products, technologies and applications covering furniture woodworking machinery, upholstery machinery, hardware accessories, upholstery materials, interior design, wood products and panels, adhesives and more. The event brought together 231 prominent international brands, further cementing CIFM / interzum guangzhou’s role as a trailblazer and innovation hub for the furniture industry. Taking place alongside the second phase of the China International Furniture Fair (CIFF), the exhibition attracted 215,166 trade visitors from 178 countries and regions, a leap of 30.2% compared with 2019. Overseas participation also increased, skyrocketing by 63.6% to achieve a record-breaking high.

Looking back on the event, Grace Chen, Chairwoman of the Board of Leitz (China), a renowned German brand of woodworking tools, expressed optimism: “Both visitor turnout and order volumes surpassed expectations by approximately 20%. We are hopeful and confident about the outlook for the Chinese market.”

Yongfeng Yang, President of CITIKING-RENOLIT, a leading brand of decorative films, echoed similar sentiments: “interzum guangzhou is a highly influential international furniture production trade fair. Industry-leading companies, designers and technical teams all participate. We are very pleased with the event.”

 

Various opportunities for engagement and innovative thinking

As a guiding light for the international furniture manufacturing industry, CIFM / interzum guangzhou showcases trends that serve as crucial insights for industry players seeking business opportunities. In addition to the exhibition, diverse concurrent events provided industry insights. For example, the Vitality of Sustainable Innovation to Life (VSIL) Forum focused on global home interior design and supply chains, while the Boundless Design Forum explored international edge banding technologies. Meanwhile, the interzum guangzhou Award recognised high-quality furniture accessories and components with a focus on sustainable development, digitalisation and innovative material applications.
