In the Spotlight

Sinostar International Ltd. is a Hong Kong-based company specializing 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 Exhibitions since 1983. From 1996 onwards, these two exhibitions have been held concurrently, and alternate between Guangzhou and Shanghai. Sinostar International 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.

SFCHINA2014 (The 27th China International Exhibition for Surface Finishing & Coating Products) will be held on December 3-5, 2014 in Halls 12.2 & 13.2 of the China Import and Export Fair Complex (Canton Fair Complex) in Guangzhou. Recognized as an effective and important trade platform for the global finishing industry, SFCHINA is a highly targeted trade exhibition organized since 1983. As always, SFCHINA2014 Guangzhou will continue to feature TWO exhibit zones: Coating Applications & Products, Electroplating & Finishing Technology. The scope of exhibits will cover almost the entire industry, from substrate pretreatment, mechanical and chemical finishing processes, coating applications (include paints and powder coating), electroplating processes and equipment, to testing equipment, wastewater treatment and recycling technology.

Our 2013 Shanghai show performed once again with remarkable results, attracting 10,695 visitors from 49 countries/regions and 298 exhibitors from 22 countries/regions to gather in a gross exhibit area of more than 14,000 sqm. Now about 70% of exhibit space has already been booked and most global industry players have reserved their space, confirming the exhibiting effectiveness of the event and the dynamics of China's finishing industry.

China is now the world's largest surface treatment market as well as the focus of the global industry. The output value of China's coating application and products reaches RMB tens of billions each year, while its electroplating industry reaches RMB100 billions every year. Additionally, China has a stable growth in domestic demand. Continuous innovation is also the key to enable new applications and further fuel the China finishing market. The growth in the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region is particularly outstanding that helps boost a strong demand for finishing products and technologies. With Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong as leading cities, PRD region is a global manufacturing base with the highest industrial output among all regions inside China. Exhibitors will benefit from exhibiting at SFCHINA2014 Guangzhou!

China keeps increasing its investment in urban construction, affordable housing projects, rural infrastructure, etc., which in fact generate immense business opportunities for the finishing industry. End-user industry like construction, automotive, household appliances and furniture industries continue to drive market growth. At the same time, stringent environmental regulations urge the upgrade of the production capacity, to look for innovative technologies and to promote energy conservation, emission reduction, clean production, etc. All these factors help facilitate the industry growth and development.

SFCHINA has been serving the finishing industry for 31 years. Exhibitors can meet influential decision makers, expand networks with high quality leads and maintain a competitive edge all under one roof within 3 days. In today's challenging economic climate, the value and effectiveness of exhibiting at SFCHINA remain constant. Join our 2014 Guangzhou edition now!
