Home agenda: Decorex, GITEX
Over the coming weeks, the latest trends in high-end professional hotel and interior design will be showcased at the Decorex exhibition in London and the latest consumer electronics will take the stage at GITEX in Dubai. One of the largest consumer IT and electronics shows in the Middle East, GITEX attracts over 166,000 visitors keen to obtain the latest electronic devices for discounted prices.
Royal Hospital Chelsea,
Decorex International began life in 1978 and has since grown into a trade fair for the high-end professional, hotel and restaurant interior design industry, attracting around 300 exhibitors per year. Decorex is aimed squarely at professionals within the industry and therefore has less of an ‘end-consumer' focus than trade shows such as Tendence or Maison & Objet for example. Despite this professional focus the show heavily promotes the work of bloggers, running a 'Decorex Loves Bloggers' campaign each year. The event follows on from 100% Design London which runs September 22-25 and focuses on consumer relevant contemporary interior design.

11th Shunde Expo
Shunde Exhibition Center
Shunde, Guangdong Province, China
The Shunde International Exposition for Household and Electrical Appliances (shortened by the organizers to Shunde Expo) is one of the largest events of its kind within China. In 2010 the event attracted over 500 exhibitors and 65,000 visitors from 45 countries including the USA, Russia and France. In terms of visitor numbers the event is far larger than the Hong Kong Houseware Fair (April 20-23), yet it is not used as a product launchpad in the same way that IFA (September 2-7) is.

Out Style /Urban Style
and Giosun. The exhibition is used by exhibitors to showcase the following season's trends in outdoor furniture design. Though the exhibition does not release visitor numbers, they reported an 18 percent increase in exhibitors in 2010 compared to 2009. Though the event attracts manufacturers and visitors from around the world it does not have such an impact on trends as Spoga + Gafa (September 4-6).
