DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR 2017 will take place March 21-23, 2017 in Shanghai, China. The carpet sector will occupy once again center stage at the next edition with 5 halls hosting everything from hand-made carpets, wall-to-wall carpets, carpet tiles, woven and machine-tufted carpets, mats, carpet raw materials to latest carpet technology.

‘’In recent years, the carpet and rugs market, has shown substantial growth due to the rising urban population, demand for modular carpets and resurgence of the construction industry in developing economies. The residential market will remain the leading end user for carpets and rugs even though the non-residential market is also growing thank to the rising investment in offices, commercial and institutional construction sectors. In the last few years more and more consumers are also willing to spend money on bringing about aesthetic improvements to their homes or office spaces and this condition is creating a favorable environment for the development of luxury carpets and rugs industry.’’ explains Mr. David Zhong, President of VNU Exhibitions Asia, one of the organizers of the shows.
