CIFF 2023

Asia generates the most income in the furniture industry of all continents. It comes as no surprise that Asian trade fairs are popular among international buyers. One of the biggest events in the furniture industry is China International Furniture Fair (CIFF). It attracts over 400,000 visitors, and over 4,000 brands showcase their products. Spring CIFF 2023 will be the 51st edition overall and the first without strict restrictions, so more importers will attend the trade show.

CIFF 2023 – where and when?

The CIFF fair has been an important event in the trade fairs calendar since 1998. Its scale grew rapidly. Over 380 companies exhibited their products during the first edition, and now there are 16 times more. The number of participants is 22 times higher than the initial 20,000. CIFF focuses on the entire furniture supply chain: home, garden and leisure furniture; home decor and home textiles, office furniture, commercial furniture, hotel furniture, furniture machinery, and raw materials.
