As Asia’s top trade fair for the hardware and DIY sectors, in which specialist traders and buyers are offered a comprehensive category of products and service, China International Hardware Show (CIHS) is a platform preferred by many within the region. The landmark event of the industry is also firmly established as the world’s second largest hardware show after the International Hardware Fair in Cologne, Germany.
CIHS 2010 showcased 2,300 companies from 19 countries and regions, and occupied over 110,000m2 of floor space. The trade fair welcomed over 35,000 trade visitors from 85 countries, who sourced for and obtained information about the latest products and innovations on tools, DIY and building hardware, security systems, locks and fittings. According to the organisers, CIHS 2011 is already 80% sold out. Apart from the return of the well-received Innovative Products Zone from last year, trade buyers can look forward to the debut appearance of the Protective Products Zone, as well as the Mould & Abrasives Zone.
