The 23rd Xiamen Stone Fair took place from June 05 to 08, 2023, in the southern Chinese metropolis in the natural stone province of Fujian. It had significant international participation for the first time after the Covid years of 2020, 2021 and 2022. However, we guess the number of foreign exhibitors was one-third lower than before the pandemic.
This was mainly because there had been another outbreak of Covid in China in early 2023, and exhibitors from other continents were unsettled in their planning.
Large, however, was again the number of visitors. As in the years before the pandemic, there was much of crowding in the halls.
We will publish the final numbers of visitors and exhibitors in a detailed report in early June 2023.
This photo gallery shows scenes and stands that caught our eye. We will put another photo gallery online tomorrow. If you can’t reach companies, please get in touch with us, and we will try to help.
Later, we will report in detail on the “Xiamen Habitat Design and Life Festival“ exhibition on interior design with natural stone and the “Stone Infinite“ show on product design with stone later.
The next Xiamen Stone Fair is scheduled to return to its traditional date at the beginning of the year and will be held from March 16 to 19, 2024. Its motto will be “Say Hi.“
