Shanghai, China—Domotex asia/Chinafloor, the leading flooring show in Asia-Pacific, will be held March 25 to 27 in Shanghai. 
The 16th edition of the show will cover 140,000 square meters and add new or expanded specialty venues such as the World of Handmade Carpets and an enhanced appointment setting feature in the InnovAction program, organizers said.

In the past, handmade and machine made carpets and rugs from international exhibitors were shown together in the same halls. 
In 2014, international handmade carpets producers will appear separately in hall W5, where rugs, education, demonstrations of techniques and historical and cultural influences will merge.
 Machine-made carpets and rugs will remain in hall W1, the traditional international hall for this product category.

Leading producing countries including Iran, India and Pakistan will install pavilions at the handmade carpet area with many other international producers. 
Daily live performances will demonstrate techniques, materials, cultural influences and distinguished product characteristics. The InnovAction program is designed to highlight the show’s newest products.

In 2014, show organizers will expand the interactive on-line system for pre-viewing selected products, promotional opportunities and appointment setting. The physical InnovAction spotlight venue will move into the Architects and Designers Hub.
