In 2020, DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR will cover more than 185 000m² of gross space, taking up 16 halls at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. Five of the exhibition halls will be dedicated to carpets and rugs, four to wood, bamboo and other hard floors, two to FLOORTECH Asia and five halls to resilient floor coverings. Here’s an overview of what can be expected in some of the halls at the 22nd edition of the show:
Solid wood for ground heating systems
Solid wood for ground heating systems is growing in China. According to the China National Forest Products Industry Association, around 80% of China’s wood flooring brands have developed the product. At the same time, the market share is increasing by more than 30% annually. It is expected that by 2025, the market size of solid wood for ground heating systems will reach RMB 10 billion (approx. 1.4 billion USD). This category will occupy an entire hall to showcase new technologies, designs and products in floor heating. International and local market leaders such as Junckers, Foglie d’Oro, Edelholz, IBF, Teclic, Nature, Fudeli, Bloor, Jinyi, Licher, Nuogao and Moganshan have confirmed their participation at the show.
The resilient flooring section will be spread out over 69 500m². There will be an “Inspiration Hall” which will house the InnovAction campaign and design forum where famous interior designers will educate the audience on using resilient flooring in interior spaces. The InnovAction campaign will be upgraded by showcasing the new products within matching interior spaces, a new way of presenting that is ideal for both manufacturers to share ideas and for visitors to keep up to date with market trends.
The carpet section will promote carpet as a driving force for interior design, with a dedicated hall being the epicentre of home and design carpets and the host hall for the Luxury Brands Carpet Show – a showcase of the most sought-after international high-end carpet design brands. After the successful first edition in 2019, Chinese Original Carpet Design Show comes back to promote the works of young Chinese carpet designers. Country pavilions from Germany, Belgium, Iran and Turkey will also showcase their products among the carpet halls.
In 2019, the show gathered 1579 exhibitors from 36 countries and attracted 66 875 trade visitors, of which 15 092 were international, coming from 107 nations. DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR is a part of the dynamic international DOMOTEX brand based in Hannover, Germany, along with three other platforms: DOMOTEX Turkey, DOMOTEX USA and – making its debut this year – DOMOTEX Mexico.
