New co-located exhibition for HD+ Asia
With annual Chinese consumption in the soft decoration industry now reaching 200-300 billion (RMB), the potential for growth in the Chinese market and the Asia-Pacific Region is expected to be huge. Inspired by this growth, R+T Asia is creating more opportunities for attendees. In 2018, the Yuhang Pavilion debuted with the Yuhang Home Textile Industry Association, representing top curtain manufacturers in China.
