This year's International Furniture Fair Singapore (IFFS), which closed on 12th March, attracted 15,126 visitors – including 95 overseas buying delegations – from 87 countries.
The show, which took place in a new venue, the Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands – and will do so for the next four editions – is recognised as one of Asia’s leading events for higher-end, designer product.
A total of 204 exhibitors presented new products at this year's show, which, along with the co-located ASEAN Furniture Show and NOOK Asia, represented the entirety of the furniture, furnishing and interior design industries.
“As the show continues to evolve amidst a challenging trade landscape, we progressively and sustainably reinvent the show to spot key trends, identify major challenges and propose alternative solutions to best cater to the ever-changing needs of tomorrow’s urban living. The change in venue has been a positive step for us, as with the introduction of a new, exciting and relevant theme, as we welcome a myriad audience that will elevate IFFS to the next level,” says Ernie Koh, chairman of show organiser IFFS Pte Ltd.
Exhibitors included brands such as Anno 13 (Belgium), Asiades (Hong Kong), Deesawat (Thailand), District Eight (Vietnam), Halo (Hong Kong), Koda (Singapore), Life Outdoor Living (Belgium), Lumas Gallery (Germany), Manutti (Belgium), PR Interiors (Belgium), Reeves Design (Vietnam), Talenti (Italy), Tetrad (UK) and Woven+ (The Netherlands).
Next year's edition will take place from 9–12th March, 2020.
