The China Furniture Fair (CIFF), which is one of the biggest fairs of the furniture industry and has a global participation, is a fair that it has attended intensely personally and institutionally from our country.
Fairs are very important for bilateral trade relations such as purchasing, marketing and development. The fairs that bring the buyers and sellers together are as important for the awareness of the consumers about the products and for the recognition of the product, for the development of them within the companies. Since fairs are held in certain countries, cities and regions within certain time periods, they contribute greatly to the country’s economy in terms of tourism.
The benefit of fairs is beneficial not only for the country that organizes the fair but also for all other countries. It creates collaboration opportunities in many areas such as joint production opportunities and intermediate supply, as well as the supply of products needed.
The furniture industry is one of the sectors that take advantage of these advantages created by fairs at an advanced level.
Fairs held in China as well as European countries such as Italy and France constitute the most important meeting points of the sector.

One of the defining features of fairs is that they are held between certain dates every year. The entire sector knows these dates and during these dates a significant travel concentration occurs in the fair city. During these periods, which we can think of as a kind of business tourism activity, there may be difficulties in terms of transportation and accommodation due to intense demand. Therefore, exhibitors need travel companies, agencies and organizations that specialize in fairs. Getting the necessary visas from the very beginning, transportation, eating, accommodation, arranging and guiding services for special events in the fair provides great convenience to the participants. These logical requirements have led to the creation of a specialized tourism area, such as fair tourism, and these specialized companies provide great support to the participants.
