Still bustling and full of surprises on the upside, the Malaysian International Furniture Fair (MIFF) concluded after four highly-charged trading days with positive feedback from exhibitors and buyers at its 25th anniversary edition.
The March 8-11 trade show spread over 100,000 sqm at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) and Putra World Trade (PWTC) was particularly well received by buyers thrilled by the enticing variety of modern lifestyle designs showcased by 600 exhibitors from 14 countries and regions and the comfortable show experience.
Exhibitors were satisfied by the diversity of attendance and high-quality buyers. Many reported strong booth traffic and writing orders. On the first two days alone, MIFF welcomed buyers from 120 countries with a significant number of first-time visitors and returning customers joining the regular flow of professionals who favoured the show because it is the biggest export platform for Malaysian wood furniture and office furniture in Southeast Asia.
“We are very happy at the positive response, more so as 2019 is a very special year for MIFF. We have been able to celebrate not just our strong legacy but also proved to our customers that MIFF is always changing and growing, and it will remain relevant for their business and future. We are already very excited about 2020 and confident that there will be more exhibitors because we received so many queries on the first day of trading this year,” said Ms Karen Goi, General Manager of MIFF.
Among the highlights this year was the spotlight on Malaysia’s Furniture City of Muar and strong presence of young Malaysian designers bringing their products to the market to tap the growing population of millennial consumers.
The show floor was packed with attractive offerings from Malaysian companies and the increased international participation from China, Taiwan, Indonesia, South Korea, Japan, United States Turkey, New Zealand, Thailand, Vietnam and for the first time, suppliers from Portugal, Romania and Sri Lanka.
