More than 1,000 Chinese manufacturers bound for Dubai in Home interiors showcase

Dubai, UAE, 25 November 2013: More than 1,000 suppliers of Chinese goods are set to descend upon Dubai next month bringing over 50,000 products to introduce to Middle East buyers, contributing to the 35% increase in trade between the UAE and China every year for the past decade.

The China Homelife exhibition will run from 3-5 December 2013 at the Dubai World Trade Centre with a 60% increase in exhibitor numbers and 150% increase in exhibition space year on year.

In 2012, the value of trade between China and the UAE surpassed $35billion for the first time, while 60 per cent of China’s total trade passes through the UAE, before it is re-exported West to Africa and Europe. The Ministry of Foreign Trade reported that trade between the UAE and China increased by 395% in the last ten years.

Bringing in key names from the major Nantong and Shazxin provinces, high quality textiles and garments will take centre stage spanning two pavilions that will open during the show with 120 suppliers. Furniture, home appliances, kitchens and bathrooms, garden and leisure products and lights and lamps will also feature prominently throughout the exhibition.

According to MEOrient International, the organisers behind the exhibition, entities from China have returned year-on-year to share insight and investment with key players throughout the Middle East region, a market that has become key for Chinese trade.

Gavil Fang, Chief Executive Officer, MEOrient International commented: “We return to the Dubai World Trade Centre this year with high expectations which are based on the significant relationships China and Chinese manufacturers have made with the Middle East. Demand has been high for exhibitor space and we are looking forward to seeing the reactions from the buyers in this market.

“Every year, the show acts as a platform to develop burgeoning relationships between Chinese manufacturers and distributors throughout the Middle East. China HomeLife plays a fundamental role in bringing these parties together to forge new ties and subsequently create lucrative partnerships.”

The largest exhibition of Chinese suppliers of home products in the Middle East, the event will feature rare products not currently on offer in the region as well as a vast number of low cost must-have home items.

Fang added: “By growing the show strategically over the last four years, we are now in a position where we can cater to volume buyers in the region with a diversity of products and exhibitors in order to tap into the investment potential of importers and traders.”

China Homelife Dubai takes place from 3-5 December at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
