Furthermore, its setting, Guangzhou, is the largest production, sales, import and export base for Chinese hospitality supplies.

Quality and value

It is clear from industry reports that the budget and mid-segment sectors of the hospitality market have weathered the economic down-turn and shown remarkable resilience in light of the economic crisis.

Therefore, in order for industry suppliers to adapt to more strained economic conditions and meet the demands of the market, there is an even greater focus on value products for the rapidly expanding budget hotels market.

This will provide Corby with the ideal opportunity to bring to the fore some of its key strengths in the form of its products, more particularly its range of ironing centres, bins and hairdryers.
