SFCHINA2013 – Joining Shanghai Edition!

In the Spotlight

Sinostar International Ltd. is a Hong Kong-based company specialized in organizing industrial exhibitions, publishing bilingual (Chinese & English) technical magazines and offering direct marketing services to a clientele worldwide. Sinostar International has been organizing the "Surface Finishing" & "Coatings" series of Exhibition since 1983. From 1996 onwards, these two exhibitions have been held concurrently and have alternated between Guangzhou and Shanghai. Sinostar International Ltd. is also the publisher of "China Coatings Journal (CCJ)" and "Surface Finishing Journal (SFJ)" — the only official publications for the CHINACOAT and SFCHINA series of Exhibitions.

SFCHINA, recognized as the region’s most prominent exhibition for the finishing industry in China and Asia Pacific, will hold its 26th event from November 20-22, 2013 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, P. R. China at Halls E1-E2. There will be two exhibit zones, featuring coating applications & products, electroplating & finishing technology. The scope of exhibits will cover the entire industry, from substrate preparation, mechanical & chemical finishing, and coating applications, to recycling.

China has become the world's biggest finishing market. In 2011, the output value of the China finishing industry reached RMB¥180 billion, and is expected to maintain 15-20% annual growth over the next five years, higher than the average growth rate of the national economic development. To explore the flourishing finishing market, SFCHINA2013 provides industry players with a unified one-stop trading platform:
Since 1983, SFCHINA has been helping the exhibitors increase their sales and achieve long term market development
SFCHINA offers unique access to the industry’s most influential decision-makers within 3 days
It is the best way to reduce marketing budget: establish new sales channel, enhance brand image, launch new products, build new databases and maintain relationships with existing customers.
High-level technical programmes will attract more industry professionals to visit the show.

The 2012 Guangzhou show accomplished remarkable results despite worldwide economic challenges. It attracted 10,644 visitors from 36 countries/regions and 292 exhibitors from 20 countries/regions to gather in an exhibit area of 14,000sqm. Though it has yet to open its gate to visitors, about 65% of space available at SFCHINA2013 has been reserved and most global industry leaders have now booked their space.

The finishing market is facing rapid upgrading and transformation in recent years, which greatly contribute to the sustainable growth of the industry. With the continuous development of the automotive, construction, electronics, household appliances, aviation, aerospace and shipbuilding industries, and growing public demand for better living conditions, the need for both decorative and functional products increases significantly. The increasingly stringent environmental regulations continue to exert influence on the finishing industry, and additionally spur industrial growth.
