Shanghai, China -- The 20th edition of Domotex Asia/ChinaFloor will take place March 20-22. With an all-star cast of new and returning exhibitors, the 2018 Domotex Asia/ChinaFloor will be the largest to date. Due to high demand in all product categories, the show has significantly increased exhibition capacity to accommodate over 1,400 companies.
The wood flooring sector will present the latest innovations in solid wood, laminate, cork, bamboo, and wood plastic composite (WPC) flooring in Hall E1–E3/E9–E11/T1–T7. This year’s show is promoting WPC decking as a hot subcategory to accommodate an overflow of outdoor decking and wood flooring exhibitors. One of the highlights coming from E10 is the WPC Decking – VIP Hosted Buyers Program. The business platform involves 50-WPC decking exhibitors and 15-VIP international delegates with the goal of increasing collaboration between Chinese suppliers and global flooring companies.
The country pavilions from Afghanistan, India, Iran, and Pakistan signify the ever-increasing strength of the show’s hand-made carpet division. Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, and the U.S. fill the gap to present a large variety of machine-made carpets and rugs for the audience’s pleasure. A fan-favorite in Hall W5 is The Luxury Brands Carpet Show. In its sophomore appearance, the showcase will host 16 international designers and their extravagant, unique carpets. The “Carpet Tile Zone” has seen 35% growth from last year and is becoming another main visitor highlight of the show.
Now covering five halls (Halls E5–E9/T10–13), resilient flooring has become Domotex Asia/ChinaFloor’s largest segment. Extra efforts have also been made to spearhead sport flooring as the up-and-coming niche in this year’s exhibition as participation has risen 57% since 2017. The “Sport Flooring Experience Area” will organize a badminton tournament on 200 sq m of artificial turf pitch and construct a “Snow + Ice Experience Zone.”
2018 introduces the best of tech in Hall E4 and E11, everything from raw material suppliers, to floor laying, extrusion, and packing machinery. In Hall E11 specifically, domestic wallboard companies such as Dilong Culture, Nanyang Decoratire, and Youzhong Decoration will be launching their products at the exhibition for the first time.
