Organized by China Foreign Trade Guangzhou Exhibition General Co. Ltd. and China Foreign Trade Macalline Exhibition Co.

Eighty percent of Chinese design brands were present at NECC in Hongqiao, demonstrating that CIFF Shanghai is now the ultimate point of reference for quality and innovation and the designated place for defining home furnishing trends. The presence of an ever-increasing number of foreign companies, both in the International Lifestyle Hall and in the halls dedicated to furnishing living and sleeping areas, as well as at CIFF-WMF, the sector of the fair dedicated to machinery and technologies for the furniture industry, confirms CIFF’s role as an essential platform for entering the increasingly rich and demanding Chinese market.The 44th edition of CIFF Shanghai hosted a series of important events, seminars, competitions, and innovative initiatives.
