Domotex Asia 2016 attendance up 9.3%; 2017 show 63% booked

DOMOTEX asia / CHINAFLOOR ist die größte Teppich- und Bodenbelags-Messe in der Region Asien-Pazifik, und die zweitgrößte Fachmesse ihrer Art in der Welt. Sie findet jährlich im März auf dem Shanghai New International Expo Centre statt und zieht mehr als 40.000 Besucher aus der ganzen Welt an.

Shanghai–The 18th edition of Domotex asia/ChinaFloor, held here March 23-26, featured 1,303 exhibitors from 39 countries and attracted 50,398 trade visitors from more than 110 nations, resulting in a 9.3% increase compared to last year.

Martin Folkerts, director of Global Fairs at Deutsche Messe, one of the organizers of the show, said the increased number of exhibitors and visitors “were a clear indication of the confidence that the flooring industry players have on the show as the best platform to do business in the region.”

Piet Dossche, CEO of USFloors, which was a first-time exhibitor at the show, said, “The exhibition keeps attracting the most prominent buyers from all over the world.”

One highlight of Domotex Asia 2016 was the visit of the first North American distributor delegation who visited some of the biggest domestic exhibitors’ manufacturing sites.

The next Domotex asia/ChinaFloor will be held March 21-23, 2017. To date, 63% of the available exhibition space is already booked, show organizers reported.
