DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR 2024 marks its outstanding success with overwhelming response

Proving its esteemed value, DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR 2024 again brought the worldwide flooring community together from the 26th time, from May 36-30 at the Shanghai National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC).

Spanning across 230,000 square meters of exhibition space across 8 halls, the flooring industry witnessed the unveiling of the latest innovations and future trends by 1600 flooring producers and brands. Despite global economic challenges, the show attracted a robust attendance, with 83,850 professional visitors from 117 countries, including Greater China. Notably, international visitors surged by 25% compared to the previous year, totaling 17,923 and surpassing the record set in 2019, making the event more internationally diverse than ever before.

“The strong edition of DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR 2024 reinforced once again the leading position of the event in the entire Asia Pacific region. The overwhelming increase of international visitors was a clear indication that China remains a crucial player in the flooring industry. Together with the nearby growing Asian markets, it offers unique development opportunities for everyone. The 3-day large gathering here in Shanghai, gave everyone the opportunity to experience in person the latest developments and the most cutting-edge innovations that this region has to offer.” – said Sonia Wedell Castellano, Global Director at DOMOTEX.

The event welcomed over 150 carefully selected flooring buyers from 20 countries, including delegates from Italy, facilitated through collaboration with Federparquet (Italian Association of Wood Flooring Distributors and Installers), and representatives from Australia, in partnership with the Australasian Timber Flooring Association (ATFA). These international buyers enjoyed tailored visits to the booths of 80 chosen exhibitors and participated in more than 400 matchmaking meetings at the dedicated international buyers’ lounge.

From the Chinese hosted buyer activities’ side, it is worth noting that over 100 local enterprise project coordinators from Public Construction Branch of China Building Decoration Association, the Interior Decoration Committee of China Real Estate Association, and ten leading trade associations representing Chongqing, Fuzhou, Xiamen, Quanzhou, Jiaxing, Taizhou and Wenzhou, engaged in procurement and docking activities at the event. Additionally, the Nanxun Furniture Industry Association, along with Jinmao Furniture Square, Golden Triangle Square, Haoyijia Furniture Square, and East China Decoration City organized delegation visits for dealers and building material suppliers.
