THe Malaysian International Furniture Fair (MIFF) has been moved from September this year to March next year in light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Organiser Informa Markets announced that the 26th edition of MIFF would be held at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (Mitec) and Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) from March 8 to 11,2022.
In the absence of a physical show this year, the MIFF Furniverse Online Exhibition will take place in August.
“We regret that we are unable to bring MIFF’s physical event back this year.
“However, we have never stopped connecting the global furniture market and providing trade opportunities to exhibitors and buyers, ” said MIFF founder and chairman Datuk Tan Chin Huat.
MIFF Furniverse concluded its second edition earlier this year.
The five-day virtual trade event attracted 67 exhibitors and 1,703 buyer visits from 101 countries and regions – a 35.5% increase from the first edition in August 2020, with USD4.55mil (RM18.9mil) generated in sales.
The largest number of buyers who attended the event were from Asia, followed by Europe and North America. It also brought new buyers (31%).
“We are glad to receive advanced bookings from new exhibitors to join the third MIFF Furniverse, based on real business achieved from the last two editions.
“The online exhibition connects the industry in this challenging time.
“It has proven its effectiveness in helping global buyers accomplish their business needs with the absence of a physical show, ” said Tan.
