In 2020, Domotex Asia/ChinaFloor will cover more than 185,000 sqm of 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. In 2019, the show gathered 1,579 exhibitors from 36 countries and attracted 66,875 trade visitors, of which 15,092 were international, coming from 107 nations.
For the 22nd edition, each flooring sector will have a theme. The highlighted product category in wood is solid wood for radiant heating systems. The category is taking over the entire hall, showing new technologies, designs and products in floor heating. Solid wood for radiant 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 radiant heating systems will reach RMB 10 billion (approx. $1.4 billion).

Among the resilient halls, there will be an “Inspiration Hall,” housing InnovAction campaign and design forum, where famous interior designers will educate the audience on using resilient flooring in interior designs. The InnovAction will showcase new products within matching interior spaces.

The Carpet section will promote carpet as a driving force for interior design, with a dedicated hall being the epicenter 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.
