20th Anniversary MIFF Draws Strong Exhibitor Response









KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- After another record setting 2013, the Malaysian International Furniture Fair ( MIFF) is drawing strong exhibitor response for its 20 th anniversary from March 4 to 8 next year.

With still six months left to before the show, exhibitors have snapped up 80 per cent of the expanded 80,000 sq metres floor space at the downtown Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) and nearby Matrade Exhibition & Convention Centre (MECC).

"This is extremely positive for MIFF as we celebrate 20 successful years in the furniture tradeshow industry. The fact that MIFF has maintained its position as Southeast Asia's No.1 furniture destination year after year speaks of the strength of our trade show and our track record," said MIFF Chairman, Dato' Tan Chin Huat.  

Dato' Tan said exhibitors and visitors can look forward to an international showcase of high quality and a wide variety of products at great value.

MIFF 2013 ended on a high note, generating a high of US$854 million in sales and a turnout of over 6,000 global buyers from 140 countries. It was 25 per cent bigger and enlarged to 80,000 sq metres to accommodate more exhibitors from Muar, the furniture capital of Malaysia.

Following the resounding debut of the MFA Hall, the Muar Furniture Association (MFA) has indicated the number of exhibitors will increase next year in its specially designated area.

Office and household furniture were again the strongest segments at MIFF 2013, buoyed by the attendance of more influential buyers and demand from emerging markets.

MIFF has consistently delivered quality buyers from neighbouring Southeast Asian countries, East Asia, North America, Europe and Australia. In recent years, visitorship from emerging economies in South Asia, Middle East, Africa and Latin America has risen.

The highlights of MIFF 2014 will include the highly popular Buyers' Night, an evening of colourful entertainment and dining slated on March 5, as well as the MIFF Furniture Design Competition for young talent.  

Also a big draw is the Prize Presentation Ceremony on March 6 when the winners of the MIFF Furniture Design Competition as well as furniture excellence and best booth display awards are honoured.

Buyers can take advantage of free admission by registering online ( www.miff.com.my) by Jan 31, 2014, and special rates by MIFF hotel partners by booking on the website.
