Chinese Furniture Fairs Canceled Due to Virus Epidemic

GUANGZHOU, China -- Both the China International Furniture Fair and the China International Furniture Machinery & Furniture Raw Materials Fair 2020 has been canceled, according to an email by the China Foreign Trade Guangzhou-Exhibition General Corp.

The fairs were scheduled for March 18-21 and 28-31, respectively. 

"As China is fighting a serious battle against the novel coronavirus," the Jan. 31 email reads, "prevention and control of the epidemic is the country’s most important work for now. Following the Chinese government’s guidelines to contain the virus, the Department of Commerce of Guangdong Province and Guangzhou Municipal Commerce Bureau recently announced that all large-scale economic and trade events should be suspended."

New dates will be announced. 

"As a brand exhibition organized by the 'national team' of China’s exhibition industry, CIFF [China International Furniture Fair] adheres to the principle of 'putting exhibitors and visitors first," the email reads. "Given the current situation of the novel coronavirus in China, rescheduling the fairs to protect people’s health and safety is an important and necessary decision to make."
