51st CIFF Guangzhou 2023 celebrates extraordinary success. It couldn’t have started better than this! After a complicated period marked by several difficulties, date changes, and global uncertainties, the 51st edition of CIFF Guangzhou has just closed its doors with an extraordinary turnout, that satisfies all.
The numbers speak for themselves: + 27.88% of visitors compared to CIFF Guangzhou 2019, the last edition held before the pandemic, and record high attendance. Wrapping up on March 31 after a total of eight days (four for the first phase and four for the second), 51st CIFF Guangzhou 2023 occupied 700,000 square metres of exhibition space divided among 4,000 exhibitors and was attended by 380,763 trade and qualified visitors from 166 regions and countries across the world.
Aisles more crowded than ever, queues at stand entrances, and reliably packed conferences characterised this latest edition of CIFF Guangzhou, which undoubtedly thrilled visitors with the innovative ideas and product design proposed by the sector’s leading brands in response to the changing demands of ever-evolving markets.
The 51st CIFF Guangzhou 2023 was held in two phases, effectively divided into three exhibitions: Home Furniture, Office and Commercial Space, and CIFM/interzum guangzhou.
During the first phase, from 18th to 21st March 2023, the spotlight was on the world of the home: from interior furniture and decor to outdoor living.
The second phase, from 28th to 31st March 2023, featured the world of work and commercial spaces with a new focus on the sphere of education and healthcare facilities, as well as technologies essential to the furniture industry.
And attention is already turned to the next edition of CIFF Guangzhou 2024, which will be staged from 18th to 21st March (first phase) and from March 28 to 31, 2024 (second phase) at the Canton Fair Complex and PWTC in Guangzhou Pazhou.
