Design Creates Value, Nonstop Orders for New Products
With the backdrop of depressed trade market and increasing competition in the industry, “Innovative design” has become the competitive edge of companies in winning orders. The traditional trade model of OEM is transforming to an upgraded model of ODM by original design and OBM by proprietary brand. On the first day of the FAIR, a large batch or companies which exhibit their self-innovated new products win a great amount of orders as well as attention.
Mr. Xue, the general manager of Shenzhen D’sily said, “With the appreciation of RMB, and the increase of raw materials and labor, the only way to get an advantageous position in the market is to have self-innovative design. Both old clients and new clients are more interested in new design and new craft. After last year’s trendy color of gold, this year’s color is more “calm”. Such as the Cool Ocean product line. Practical products of bathroom, kitchen; candles, lights are all received well by the market.”Anxi Yingfa Furniture & Decorations launched an ironwork lighting fixtures product line. Mr. Yi, the vice general manager of Anxi Yingfa said, “The ironwork lighting fixtures product line is greatly received by buyers on the first day of the FAIR. We will make design adjustments according to clients‘opinions after the FAIR, so that different clients’ needs and requests can be satisfied.”
There are nearly 100 new exhibitors at the FAIR. The new exhibiting zone, Galleria gathers a large batch of manufacturers of seasonal decorations and family products, bringing rich and attractive new options for buyers.
