Shanghai, China – R+T Asia, the premier event in the Asia Pacific region for the sun shading and door/gate industries, is gearing up to host its 19th edition from 28th to 30th May 2024. Set to take place in Shanghai, the event continues to garner significant interest from both domestic and international attendees, cementing its status as a truly global platform.

With over 750 exhibitors expected to showcase their latest innovations across 120,000 square metres of exhibition space, R+T Asia 2024 is poised to be one of the most solid events yet.

Early indications from the online visitor registration system suggest an increase in international participation compared to the 2023 edition, propelled in part by favourable visa conditions for citizens of select countries as Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Ireland, Hungary, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore, which can now access China without a visa.

In 2024, the show will once again welcome national and overseas groups of manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, agents, import and export professionals, architects, interior designers, industry opinion leaders, and more to forge connections, meet current and potential suppliers, and discuss industry challenges and solutions.

The organiser invites all visitors to register online to obtain complimentary and expedited access to the show, as well as access to the exhibitor list. Interested visitors can make a quick online registration at

“Expanding upon the achievements of the 2023 edition, R+T Asia remains the preeminent networking and business platform in the APAC region," said David Zhong, President of GLOBUS Events (formerly VNU Exhibitions Asia), the show co-organiser.”

“As a dedicated B2B event with a strong emphasis on trade, our primary objective is to optimize the alignment of demand and supply and to foster the participation of international professionals, allowing them to benefit from the vast opportunities offered by Asian markets to the industry,” continued Zhong.

To achieve this, the show is actively developing targeted matchmaking initiatives both prior to and during the event. For instance, the organiser is releasing an upgraded system where attendees will have the opportunity to browse and find desired exhibitors online, connect with them before the show, and schedule meetings in advance. Additionally, the show is introducing the new edition of the Hosted Buyer program, offering exclusive benefits to independent buyers who meet specific criteria.
