The International Furniture Fair Singapore (IFFS) will hold its 33rd edition from 10 to 13 March at the Singapore EXPO in Halls 1 to 6. As one of the most prominent trade furniture exhibition in the region, the upcoming edition has garnered much interest among trade professionals of furniture, interior design, and furnishing industries all over the world.
The 2016 edition of the fair marks the first year that furniPRO Asia will be co-located with IFFS, along with The Décor Show. The industry is rife with anticipation for the various opportunities and ideas that the show has to offer. This is reflected in the robust pre-registration figures of 6,263 visitors to date, an impressive 46% increase from the year before.
At IFFS 2016, over 350 furniture manufacturers, furnishing suppliers, exporters and designers will showcase their latest and most impressive collections. This year, IFFS continues to expand its global footprint by welcoming exhibitors from more than 27 countries, including new players from Ireland, Lebanon, Mexico, and Russia. Visitors can look forward to meeting established market players, including the likes of Asiades, d-Bodhi, Far East Furniture, HALO Creative & Design, Hugo Sofa by Yew Hoong, Koda, Kuka Home, Ligne Roset, Maiori, Manutti, Pure Home Collections, Resource Decor, The Rug Republic by Sharda Exports, and Woven+
Taking measures to enhance the visitor experience, IFFS 2016 is going to present “The Outdoor Boulevard” – a dedicated area that will cluster together exhibitors with garden or outdoor offerings. Here, visitors will get to experience the outdoors in an indoor setting at the Garden Cafe, which houses a collection of specially curated products from participating exhibitors.
Visitors will also benefit from a series of dialogue sessions and business seminars set around the theme of ‘Smart Living, Convivial, and Design Forward’. Featuring personalities from various industries and backgrounds, these complimentary talks will be held during the first three days of IFFS in The Piazza Hall (Hall 4).
IFFS has collaborated with HipVan, a Singapore-based online store for designer furniture, home furnishings, and lifestyle products. For the first time this year, IFFS will have an Online Preview that showcases selected exhibitors’ products on HipVan’s website, allowing visitors the opportunity to take a first look at some of the pieces even before the show opens. One can also purchase these exhibits through the HipVan platform during the preview period, which runs from 1 – 9 March.
