The Malaysian International Furniture Fair, which has the craze in the world of furniture, the biggest global industry event in South East Asia, is packing in Malaysia’s biggest manufacturers and pavilions from Mainland China and Taiwan for its 22nd annual edition.

“We are extremely pleased with the strong response,” MIFF General Manager Karen Goi, said of the early bookings that have occurred despite challenges in the global economy. “An increasing number of exhibitors are responding to competition and requests for new products and designs, so we can look forward to more at MIFF 2016. Costs and reliable suppliers are crucial in these times. And when it comes to quality and value, MIFF is certainly the marketplace not to be missed.” He concluded.

Another hot attraction for buyers is the Muar Hall featuring manufacturers from Malaysia’s key furniture producing town that accounts for half of the country’s furniture exports. Yee Guan, which produces wooden sofa, hardwood frames and fabric upholstery, is among companies rolling out new collections at the show. MIFF remains the largest showcase for Malaysia’s world renowned wood furniture and a robust market place for high quality home and office selections to suit all tastes and budgets.
The show will also feature exhibitors from Indonesia, India, South Korea, Vietnam and Phillipines.
