China International Hardware Show
The China International Hardware Show – Powered By Practical World ranks amongst the top three hardware industry events in the world, along with the International Hardware Fair / Practical World in Cologne and the National Hardware Show in the US.
Asia’s most important hardware trade event will be held from September 17 to 19 at the Shanghai International Expo Centre. Occupying an incredible 103,500 square metres (up from 80,500 square metres last year) across nine halls, the Show is an ideal opportunity for international exhibitors wishing to gain a successful foothold in China. Interest in the event has been nothing short of phenomenal and over the last five years it has experienced a 160 percent increase in the number of exhibitors. Last year’s Show alone attracted 1,821 companies from 25 countries and 32,649 visitors from all over the world.
“We are proud to announce that in 2007 we succeeded in not only increasing the fair’s visitor attendance, exhibitor turnout and exhibition space, but also in boosting its quality in every respect,” said Oliver P. Kuhrt, Executive Vice President of Koelnmesse GmbH. “And the close cooperation with the China National Hardware Association was an indispensable factor contributing to this success.” The event will showcase four categories: tools; security, locks and fittings; home improvement / DIY; and gardening. Visitors and exhibitors can also look forward to a comprehensive program of seminars on industry updates and technology.
