Top Chinese and international brands will unveil a range of never-seen-before products at Design Shanghai 2016

Running from March 9-12, the annual show will be returning to the Shanghai Exhibition Centre in 2016, and expects to see more than 42,000 visitors through its doors. Around 300 exhibitors will take part in the four-day event with a range of installations and different programme events on the schedule too.

Design Shanghai seeks to be both a celebration and a reflection of the creative industry that has been emerging in China through recent years. Figures show that the number of interior designers in Mainland China has increased to 600,000, with the total number of creative practitioners standing at over 10 million.

More than 50% of the exhibitors at next year's event will be local designers, including both established names and emerging talents. The growth in the number of Chinese brands taking part in the event is not only indicative of the flourishing Chinese industry but also of Design Shanghai's desire to support the local design sector.
