With an "all-star cast" of new and returning exhibitors, the 20th edition of DOMOTEX Asia/CHINAFLOOR will take place from 20th to 22nd March 2018 in Shanghai. 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 WPC flooring. Hall E1, for example will be home to many well-known brands that are visiting the show for the first time.
Carpet (Hall W1–W5)
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 United States 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 internationally renowned designers and their extravagant, unique carpets. The “Carpet Tile Zone” has seen 35 per cent growth from last year and is becoming another main visitor highlight of the show.
Resilient Flooring (Halls E5–E9/T10–13)
Now covering 5 halls, 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 a 200 sqm artificial turf pitch and construct an “Snow + Ice Experience Zone”.
Floor Tech (Hall E4 and E11)
2018 introduces the best of tech - everything from raw material suppliers, to floor laying, extrusion, and packing machinery. In Hall E11 specifically, domestic wallboard companies will be launching their products at the exhibition for the first time.
