The China Import and Export Fair, better known as the Canton Fair, started organizing a design exhibition in 2011 that invites design studios from home and abroad to the fair to explore opportunities of cooperation with Chinese manufacturers to upgrade made-in-China products.
The promenade packed with booths of design studios displaying their fancy ideas like electric fans without blades has become one of the most interesting sections at the Canton Fair being held in Guangzhou, Guangdong province until May 5.
China Daily has talked with five designers on the role of the Canton Fair Product Design and Trade Promotion Center (PDC), the design show’s host, and on what opportunities the upgrade and transformation of China’s manufacturing sector has brought to the design industry.
