This year’s Malaysian International Furniture Fair (MIFF) has attracted a record 543 exhibitors, a 12% increase from last year’s turnout. MIFF founder and chairman Datuk Dr Tan Chin Huat said the exhibition will continue to enhance its position as the leading furniture industry event in Southeast Asia.
“Our exhibitors are also moving with the times. They are investing more and more in research and development to come up with their own design and new products, creating more value for their business and potential customers,” he said.
Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Seri Mah Siew Keong said MIFF provides a valuable platform for furniture buyers and producers to interact and connect them with the global markets. “The furniture industry in Malaysia is an important component of the timber sector. In 2016, Malaysia’s exports of furniture products increased by 4.2% to RM9.53bil, compared with RM9.14bil I 2015.”
MIFF will be held from 8-11 March 8 at the Putra World Trade Centre and Matrade Exhibition & Convention Centre.
