Export furniture fair HawaExpo will return to Vietnam from 6-9th March 2024, three times larger than this year's inaugural event, and promising to "blow visitors’ minds with the greatest Vietnam wood exhibition ever seen".
HawaExpo 2024 expects to welcome some 30,000 international buyers. Comprising 700 exhibitors and 3000 booths, the exhibition also promises to unlock new segments including interior design, decorative products and hospitality contractors – alongside the popular categories that have helped position Vietnam in sixth place on the global exports map.
Furthermore, it is set to be the first ASEAN exhibition to span three locations, from Ho Chi Minh City to Binh Duong – namely rếpcthe Creativity Hall, Craft Hall, and Connection Hall – in a bid to cover the Vietnamese furniture industry's entire supply chain.
Besides the timeline, which marries up with other events in the region, international visitors are promised stress-free registration, shuttle buses and numerous transportation and accommodation promotions. Via HawaExpo's app and communication ecosystem, they will be able to customise their trip plan, demands, and matchmaking opportunities.
Under the patronage of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, and the professional guidance and co-ordination of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Industry and Trade, HawaExpo is organised by Viforest Fair company, which consists of five associations – Viforest, HAWA, BIFA, DOWA, and FPA Binh Dinh. The fair is operated directly by the Handicraft and Wood Industry Association in Ho Chi Minh City (HAWA).
