WMF 2018 to merge with CIFF Shanghai

The China (Shanghai) International Furniture Machinery (CIFF) and the International Exhibition on Woodworking Machinery Fair (WMF) will take place together in September 2018 at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre (NECC), Shanghai, China, according to an official announcement. It will be co-organised by the China Foreign Trade Guangzhou Exhibition General Corporation and Adsale Exhibition Services Limited.

This new strategic cooperation is set to tie up both the upstream and downstream ends of the furniture manufacturing chain, as well as launch a new era of quality-oriented and intelligent manufacturing aimed at providing the industry with an international and resourceful exhibition where both exhibitors and buyers can explore business opportunities on one platform.

With this new collaboration, the WMF exhibition will be relocated to the NECC, and positioned as a subsidiary show of CIFF, in order to make up the China (Shanghai) International Furniture Machinery & Woodworking Machinery Fair.

The two professional exhibition organisers will consolidate resources to offer machine suppliers a platform to showcase cutting-edge technology, as well as provide global buyers with a wide selection of manufacturing solutions.

The trade fair will showcase furniture manufacturing equipment. Exhibit profiles will range from timber to furniture products alongside turnkey pollution treatment solutions and projects.
