China International Hardware Show

Announcement on Postponement of China International Hardware Show 2021

In view of the current situation involving the intermittent spreading of the epidemic nationwide and abroad and the latest epidemic prevention requirements of China and the government of Shanghai in order to guarantee the health and safety of exhibitors, purchasers and professional visitors, China National Hardware Association and Koelnmesse have prudently decided to postpone China International Hardware Show 2021 (CIHS 2021) from 8-10 October 2021 to 16-18 December 2021. The event will still be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC).

Co-organised by China National Hardware Association and Koelnmesse, CIHS has been held for 19 continuous editions and has become the leading international hardware show in the Asia-Pacific region. This year was originally a milestone for the 20th anniversary of the CIHS. The organisers have meticulously prepared a series of gratitude activities which will be presented at a later date in 2021.

Through the concerted efforts of both organising parties and with the strong support of industry associations, media partners, exhibitors and visitors at home and abroad, CIHS will continue working towards bringing together quality brands and suppliers from all over the world and integrating premium global business resources with supporting programmes of the exhibition, to establish the one-stop procurement platform for the best benefit for all after recovering from the outbreak.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused by the rescheduling of the event, and the organising team will continuously provide the best follow-up services for all. We look forward to welcoming hardware trade professionals around the globe in Shanghai, China.

For further information regarding the change of exhibition dates, please refer to the supplementary information of CIHS 2021 in the following weeks.

Yours Sincerely,
