Home Style Award 2016

Designers and manufacturers interested in the Chinese market have a lot to gain by submitting to the Home Style Award: exposure at the Interior Lifestyle CHINA, a leading home furnishing trade show in China.

This year the Home Style Award builds on last year's success and adds two new categories for submissions: ‘Home Appliances’ and ‘Bath’. Winners are honored at an award ceremony and banquet, and winning products are presented at the Interior Lifestyle CHINA trade show in Shanghai (20 to 22 September 2016).

All exhibitors and non-exhibitors are welcome to take part in the competition. The participation is free of charge.
