The stage is set for the world's furniture industry at the Malaysian International Furniture Fair 2002 (MIFF 2002) scheduled for 5 - 9 March 2002 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Organised by MIFF Sdn Bhd, MIFF 2002 will be 8th in its annual series since 1995.
The exhibition, as the largest furniture trade exhibition in the continent, has gained worldwide acceptance as the premier show and favourite international furniture buying stop in Asia. Increasingly good results and professional standards of show organisation has enabled the exhibition to receive full membership with the Union des Foires Internationales (UFI).
About 400 furniture manufacturers and exporters from Malaysia, Southeast Asia, and Asia have confirmed their participation in the 50,000 m² exhibition at the Putra World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur. With all its promise, next year's visitorship is expected to exceed the 17,000 visitor mark, including the 6,033 international buyers who came from 115 countries, as recorded at MIFF 2001 this year.
International furniture trade buyers can again look forward to viewing and selecting from the vast range of furniture for all occasions manufactured in Asia. Exhibitors have been carefully selected to ensure the right mix and variety of export quality furniture on display.
As a region blessed with abundant natural resources, the furniture manufacturing sector of Asia has grown immensely over the past decade. Making full use of their advantages, manufacturers are competing vigorously to establish a firmer foothold in the global market with time. The international furniture buyer market, on the other hand, has enjoyed good business over the years resulting from the buoyant furniture manufacturing industry here.
Malaysia, in the heart of the continent, has taken the extra step through strategic efforts to consolidate its position as the furniture centre of Asia with its strong furniture manufacturing sector, able population, state-of-the-art telecommunications network, complete road, rail, sea and air transportation, and advanced infrastructure.
Gaining rapidly with experience and production expertise, renown furniture manufacturers and exporters from all over Asia anxiously await to converge at the MIFF 2002, ready to take on global orders with their latest furniture product range.
New designs, innovation, and ideas will abound with western and eastern influences, both traditional and contemporary. Regular visitors can expect to see the change of trends while new visitors will be amazed at what MIFF 2002 has to offer!!!
