The Leading Platform Connecting Chinese and Global Hardware Industries
China International Hardware Show (CIHS), celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, was held again on September 19-21 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC), which has been recognized the largest hardware trade show in Asia. This year's show opened with eight exhibition halls (N1~N5 and W3~W5) and was divided into various thematic areas including International Hall, Domestic Tools Halls, Locks & Security Doors Products Hall, and Building Hardware & Fasteners Hall. The exhibition attracted many local Chinese and overseas enterprises to exhibit tools, locks, security products and accessories, processing and manufacturing equipment, building hardware, fasteners, DIY products, gardening and sanitary products, and other products and peripheral services.
According to the organizer, the 3-day show gathered nearly 2,500 exhibitors and representatives from Germany, Taiwan, the U.S., Canada, France, Italy, Turkey, Mexico, Japan, S. Korea, Malaysia and other countries, with a total exhibition area of 120,000 sq. m. It provided an interactive platform for face-to-face communication with professional buyers and visitors, and opened up a two-way trade channel for Chinese hardware enterprises and the introduction of overseas brands.
Fastener World's suppliers directories were not only popular to visiting buyers coming to ask for their free copies, but also highly recognized by those industry professionals visiting our stand. Some visitors commented that it was difficult to find suitable partners in a short period of time because of the large number of hardware-related industries in China, but through Fastener World's free magazines and the diversified online sourcing platform, they were able to find a lot of manufacturers with good quality, experience and good reputation very quickly.
During the exhibition, the organizer also planned a "Global Hardware Channel and Distribution Development Forum," inviting industry experts to share their insights into current market trends and industrial developments, analyze the pain points of the hardware industry's traditional distribution channels and the possibility for further upgrading, and solve the problems of insufficient marketing power and high product homogeneity, etc. The welcome reception was also held and the first "CIHS Award" was also presented to many industry leaders, product innovation and quality excellence enterprises which were invited to receive the award on stage.
The next show is scheduled for October 2024. Please always keep yourself updated on Fastener World website for the latest info about the next show.
