Following the news that China has relaxed its COVID-19 restrictions, Domotex Asia/ChinaFloor will take place July 26-28, 2023, at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai, China. 

The 2023 edition marks the 25th year of the show for the flooring, real estate and construction markets, and show planners report they are planning to bring back favorite show features and introduce several new showcases. 

Z-Space will showcase multi-dimensional spaces  by covering various categories of the floor-wall-ceiling concept. The Hosted Buyers Program returns with onsite and online quality buyers to some of the top flooring manufacturers from the region. The hosted buyers that will opt for the onsite option will enjoy free accommodations in Shanghai along with a VIP status at the exhibition, among other benefits. Finally, the China Flooring Industry Summit Forum will be held again featuring 23 renowned experts and entrepreneurs as speakers. Their presentations and discussions will be attended by high-ranking professionals representing more than 200 flooring companies in China among others.

The announcement comes as a positive sign on the future of the exhibition industry and was met with enthusiasm both by organizers and participants, show organizers said. The new relaxed measures involve less testing, no extensive lockdowns, and no quarantine in centralized centers for patients with mild symptoms.' The relaxation of rules constitutes the most sweeping changes since the pandemic started three years ago, clearly marking a return to normality in the very near future in China. At the same time, the global trade and what involves imports and exports in the flooring industry is also heading towards a speedy recovery. 

In addition, Domotex Hannover will take place January 12-15, 2023, in Germany after two years of absence, and more than 100 Chinese exhibitors will participate in that show in person. 

“This is a clear sign of liberalization of the global trade," said David Zhong, president of VNU Exhibitions Asia, Ltd, co-organizer of Domotex Asia/ChinaFloor.
