The Vietnam International Furniture & Home Accessories Fair (VIFA-Expo) attracted some 12,000 visitors – including attendees from more than 80 foreign countries and territories – when it ran from 6-9th March at Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City.
The first fair to take place on this year’s ASEAN show circuit, VIFA-Expo served up a strong complement of classic and contemporary furniture, handicrafts, home decor products and supporting services to meet the need of buyers from all over the world, its wooden cabinet offer in particular proving a major draw.
This year’s expanded edition featured more than 2420 booths – an increase of +13% YoY – and comprised some 550 enterprises, ensuring visitors were spoilt for choice when it came to sourcing competitively priced goods manufactured in Vietnam and further afield – including big-brand sofas, beds, mattresses, dining tables, chairs and more.
As well as exhibiting and sourcing new products, businesses attend VIFA-Expo to share ideas, investigate new technologies, explore the latest designs, conduct meetings and strengthen ties with new customers. Meeting every aspect of supply and demand – from finished furniture to hardware, components and manufactuing equipment – the exhibition is an ideal stepping stone ahead of the events in Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia.
Next year’s VIFA Expo will be held from 11-14th March, again at SECC.
