• R+T Asia 2018 Record numbers attend global showcase

    13 June 2018

    Held from 20 to 22 March in Shanghai, R+T Asia 2018 has maintained its position as the most important trade fair for interior and exterior sun protection systems, windows, doors, gates, and roller shutters in the Asia-Pacific region.

    Held just a few weeks after R+T Stuttgart, a record setting 34,000 visitors attended this year’s show, a year on year increase of ten per cent, with more than 500 exhibitors showcasing the sector’s latest products and innovations.

    The truly international mix of exhibitors and attendees combined with a successful mix conferences and events covering on-trend topics and the most current market intel confirms R+T Asia’s growing reputation as a global magnet for key players in the industry.

    Shanghai welcomes Innovation Prize winners

    A special highlight in 2018, Messe Stuttgart and VNU Exhibitions Asia, this year’s organisers, collaborated to bring the winners of the Innovation Prize from Stuttgart to Shanghai for the first time. Burda Worldwide Technologies (Germany), Schenker Storen (Switzerland), Serge Ferrari (Italy), and Zeitgeber (Korea) all presented their innovations to the Chinese market.

    Further highlights

    Another big attraction at R+T Asia was the debut of the Yuhang Pavilion from the Yuhang Home Textile Industry Association, which dominates the textiles industry as the home of the majority of China’s curtain makers.

    The two parts of the International Window and Door Summit (IWDS) presented the theme of “Think Bigger & Think Better” for the doors & gates forum and “Green Development and Green Building” for the sun protection systems forum. The summit is an established fixture in the R+T Asia program, and energy efficiency was one of the most important subjects.

    A special show dedicated to logistics and warehouse management for the gate manufacturing sector was a hit with visitors. For the first time, the event was produced in cooperation with the China Association of Warehousing and Distribution, featuring gate solutions providers that cater to this industry.

    Smart Home 2025 focused on new dimensions of technologies and intelligent products. Produced with the non-profit ZigBee Alliance, the pavilion featured new automation and energy efficiency.

    R+T Asia also featured a concurrent event, the popular Cadex show, which is the premier international platform that connects architecture and design. Cadex attracted material suppliers, manufacturers, architects, designers, real estate professionals, building constructors, traders, and end users, presenting three conferences that focused on design, lighting, and the smart era.

    The Materia exhibition featured “Must-Have Materials” in an innovative display of materials for interior and architecture. R+T Asia 2018 was again a productive platform for the industry, where the industry’s leading experts discussed future developments. Exhibitor satisfaction increased, thanks to the Hosted Buyer program, which featured two days of prearranged meetings between targeted exhibitors and buyers.
