Registration for Domotex asia/ChinaFloor (DACF), which will take place March 24 to 26, is now open.
According to show officials, the event will present not only the latest in flooring, but also new themed areas and conference topics to further support the industry's development. With over 150,000 square feet of gross exhibit space, DACF will include five halls dedicated to carpet and rugs, four halls dedicated to wood, laminate, bamboo and other hard floors as well as three halls (one more compared to last year) dedicated to resilient, commercial and industrial floorings with LVT leading this product category. The “World of Handmade Carpets” concept is coming back to hall W5 after a successful launch at the 2014 show, while the wood sector is back to the East halls of the Shanghai New International Exhibition Center, where the show is once again being held.
“Color the Success in Flooring” is the new slogan accompanying the 17th edition of this international trade event. Officials said, echoing the 2015 show key visual which presents in bright and shining colors some of the main exhibit categories, “Color the Success in Flooring” refers not only to the special atmosphere that the attendees experience at this exciting B2B event, but also to the positivity of the Asian construction and flooring markets.
The construction market in China, especially the recent trend of renewing existing buildings, is continuously increasing the demand for “Made-in-the-West” products. In China, where the upper class is growing at an incredibly fast pace, the “Made-in” is getting momentum also among the flooring industry, with health and design being the top reasons for choosing imported products.
“Asia and China are really in the middle of the strategy for Gerflor. It’s one of the fastest growing areas,” said Pierre Convers, Gerflor’s international sales and marketing director. "DACF is getting more and more professional year after year. We are very satisfied not only with the quantity but also with the quality of the meetings we have onsite. The visitors have really clear ideas and precise needs now and they come to DACF to see innovations and new products.”
The InnovAction Flooring campaign, running for the third time in 2015, will reveal once again the newest products developed by the industry specifically for the Asian needs but also for the global markets. This campaign has already become one of the favorite tools for manufacturers’ products launches, according to show officials.
After a record booth space rebooking performed onsite in March, the show has been selling very fast over the past five months. As of today, the space sold is already 73% of the total exhibit area, according to show officials. Not only most of the companies confirmed their participation after the good results in 2014, but many new companies have been in contact with the organizers to secure their exhibit space in 2015.
The online registration system is now open. International visitors can get their free entrance tickets by simply registering at domotexasiachinafloor.com. The online registration gives access to online visitors services including the possibility of getting in contact with the show exhibitors before the show.
