The floor covering trade show has already booked 85% of its 11 halls, making it the largest, single show taking place at the construction industry event in the Shanghai New International Expo Center March 27-29, 2012.
DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR will run simultaneously with the China Building Construction Expo encompassing green building products, technology and design. By organizing these events alongside DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR, VNU brings together the flooring industry with representatives of the real estate, architecture, interior design and construction engineering sectors.
“It's an opportunity for networking across the construction industry and we hope it creates powerful synergies for everyone,” said David Zhong, president of VNU Exhibitions Asia.
DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR attracts new exhibitors. Some of the new exhibitors joining Domotex in 2012 include Forbo, Nora, Berry Alloc, Invista, Mapei, and Lumber Liquidators, among others. Both Pakistan and Turkey have announced that they will install country pavilions to showcase their hand-made carpets. New education program include events for sports and leisure flooring, hospitals, and an enhanced demo area for installation products.
While the floor covering trade show is seeing strong growth in its resilient and hand-made carpet segments, wood and laminate flooring will remain the signature products at DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR 2012 according to organizer VNU. “With the uncertainty due to the ITC case now behind us, the industry is now back to focusing on business and market expansion.
This show provides the international flooring industry the opportunity to expand and investigate new markets and partnerships. China is evolving from being the largest producer of flooring in the world to also the largest consumer and this creates new opportunities for our manufacturers and the entire global flooring industry,” said Zhong.
