We are preparing for the 45th edition of CIFF, the world’s largest furniture exhibition and the most important furniture design event in China!
“Innovation Driven, Design Inspired” is the new CIFF strategy, developed in collaboration with a team of excellent curators, which will aim at an ever-increasing presence of companies with creative vision that invest in design and innovation.
CIFF Guangzhou 2020 will be held in two phases organized by product sectors: the first, from 18th to 21st March, dedicated to home furniture, homedecor & hometextile, outdoor & leisure furniture; the second from 28th to 31st March dedicated to office furniture, commercial furniture, hotel furniture and furniture machinery & components and raw materials.
The next edition of CIFF Guangzhou will present an innovative exhibition system and will host over 4,400 exhibitors gathered in an exhibition space extending over 760,000 square meters.
The will and the desire to communicate with each other and to communicate a China that is constantly evolving. This was the reason why CIFF, the world’s largest furniture sector fair and the most influential business platform in all Asia, decided to construct an information portal. A portal that wants to show the world a reality undergoing constant changes. A world increasingly focused on sustainable choices, beauty, design, quality. A world, the Chinese world, which is measuring itself up to the West while also rediscovering its cultural and aesthetic roots. A world increasingly ready to collaborate and increasingly capable of placing people at the centre of everything.
Welcome to China, welcome to CIFF!
The Prism Design concept for this office’s collaboration-minded interiors is “Mitochondria and chloroplasts”. The offices are split into membranes, mitochondria-inspired partitions which form the walls of a powerhouse actually visible to the naked eye: each space is built to encourage creative and strategic cross-pollination between people, their ideas and environment.

“By integrating traditional history and culture with modern and contemporary art, the exchange of cultures will bring people the long-cherished wish of a harmonious and peaceful life. The design of the building takes ‘harmony’ as the theme. From the architectural design to the very details, a variety of circles is presented. This is an attempt to create a new culture center integrating Cantonese culture by absorbing the special meaning of geometry in the regional context.” [Tadao Ando
An apartment designed by the Ippolito Fleitz Group in the heart of Shanghai, whose interiors boast vibrant colors, rich textures, and sinuous walls for an energetic yet cozy atmosphere overlooking the skyline of the metropolis.
Neri&Hu’s renovation in the Three On the Bund, a Shanghai institution building, transforms the Whampoa Club into a modern Chinese brasserie concept. Previously grandiose interiors are exchanged for a more subdued palette inspired by local street life, while still incorporating touches of opulence.
Wutopia Lab renovated a 543-sq-m historical house in central Shanghai without altering the original building code-protected elements. The house was reshaped into “a secret place”, a home that now includes a home office, courtyard and small private gallery.
Dear exhibitors, visitors and all industry stakeholders, As China is fighting a serious battle against the novel coronavirus, prevention and control of the epidemic is the country’s most important work for now. Following the Chinese government’s guidelines to contain the virus, the Department of Commerce of Guangdong Province and Guangzhou Municipal Commerce Bureau recently announced that all large-scale economic and trade events should be suspended. To ensure health and safety of all participants, the organizers have taken the decision to postpone the 45th China International Furniture Fair (Guangzhou) (“CIFF Guangzhou”) and China International Furniture Machinery & Furniture Raw Materials Fair 2020 (“CIFM/interzum guangzhou”) until a later date. The fairs were originally scheduled for March 18-21 and 28-31 in Guangzhou. New date will be notified in due course.
As a brand exhibition organized by the “national team” of China’s exhibition industry, CIFF adheres to the principle of “putting exhibitors and visitors first”. Given the current situation of the novel coronavirus in China, rescheduling the fairs to protect people’s health and safety is an important and necessary decision to make.
No matter how difficult it is, CIFF will, as always, stand by the international furniture and furnishing industry. It is our firm belief that through concerted efforts by exhibitors, visitors, associations and all industry stakeholders, by making the best of its strength and improving show quality, CIFF has full confidence and capability to develop into a world’s first-class exhibition and create more value for the industry.
Thank you for your kind understanding and continuous support. We wish you and your family health and happiness.
