Singapore events boast greater reach than ever

This year's International Furniture Fair Singapore 2015/32nd ASEAN Furniture Show (IFFS/AFS), The Décor Show, and Hospitality 360° saw a total of 487 exhibitors from a record number of 39 countries participate across 60,000 sqm of the Singapore Expo.

In terms of footfall, IFFS welcomed 18,836 visitors from 102 countries to the fair, including 92 buying delegations and 380 VIP Hosted Buyers of The Prestige Club.

Ernie Koh, chairman of IFFS Pte & President of Singapore Furniture Industries Council, says: “IFFS is well poised to assist international manufacturers enter the Asian market, as well as to allow local or regional firms to break into the global scene. Companies are attracted to the unique blend of East meets West that is adaptable to either side of the spectrum, the ease with which business can be conducted here, and the well-established infrastructure that the island nation offers.

“Hot on the heels of a successful edition, the team is already working on producing an even better show in 2016, where we will co-locate with Koelnmesse’s third edition of furniPRO Asia for the first time. We are also collaborating with the American Hardwood Export Council on a sustainable campaign to promote furniture design and business in skilled manufacturing, and this showcase will make its debut at IFFS 2016. There is much to look forward to, and we’ll share more details as things firm up.”
