Overwhelming Responses from Visitors
WMF has always been well-known in the global woodworking industry. Many buyers agreed that they could get in touch with the machinery and equipment at the fair, and learn about some industry trends, equipment upgrades, and material diversity at the fair. This year, WMF 2022 brought together over 300 buyers from associations and delegations from Jiangxi, Guangxi, Heilongjiang, Shandong, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shanghai and Fujian. Both buyers and the associations expressed satisfaction with the fair.

Ninghai Furniture Manufacturer Chamber: “To meet market demand, many manufacturers are planning to transform and upgrade, from traditional mobile furniture to advanced custom furniture. We are visiting the WMF this year to study and research for the next expansion, transformation and upgrading. It is not easy to hold an exhibition during a pandemic. I am grateful to all participants of the industry and the organizers for their full support.”
