Purchasing groups from Vietnam, India and Mexico will bring 30-40 furniture manufacturers to FMC China 2012 from 11 - 14 September to visit the related enterprises and factories. The Taiwan Woodworking Machinery Association (TWMA) and the Italian Woodworking Machinery Association (ACIMALL) will each have more than 10 exhibitors participating at FMC China 2012 to show visitors the latest product technology. The organiser is now contacting Furniture Associations around the world, in order to attract more overseas purchasing groups.
FMC China 2011 successfully moved to Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center, at which overseas visitors increased by 50%. In 2012, FMC will use Hall 4 and the total area will be 71,000 square metres, representing an increase of 20% over last year. There are 850 exhibitors expected in 2012, an increase of 14% over last year. And the visitor numbers are up to 35,000, representing an increase of 10% over last year.
FMC received positive feedback last year. Cheng Jue, the Representative of Zhongwei Holding Group, said, "This is the fourth time that we have attended FMC China. We are glad to see FMC moving to a new venue. We used to get an outdoor booth at SNIEC. The air-conditioner was not powerful enough and many customers complained. This year we will move indoors where the hall environment is clean and comfortable, so all customers will be well taken care of.”
It is believed that the move of the FMC China show will not only offer better conditions for exhibitors and visitors, but also create a one-stop sourcing platform for woodworking machinery and furniture raw materials.
