KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian International Furniture Fair (MIFF) kicked off its second edition of MIFF Furniverse 2021 online exhibition Monday, bringing global furniture buyers onboard to conduct their online furniture sourcing in real-time with reliable furniture manufacturers and exporters.
In the absence of the physical exhibition due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the five-day online event brings together 70 online exhibitors offering an extensive range of home and office furniture selections, as well as Malaysian best wooden furniture.
MIFF general manager Karen Goi said MIFF Furniverse exhibitors from Malaysia, the US, Ireland, Taiwan, Indonesia, and China would showcase their latest offerings and look forward to serving the global buyers.
“Based on the feedback received from the first edition last year, MIFF Furniverse is now back with enhanced platform features and improved business-matching solution to provide real-time trading opportunities for buyers and exhibitors.
“We continue to build on our strong legacy as a partner to the global industry to expand exports, drive economic growth, and prosperity for all. We maintain our engagement with exhibitors and global buyers to ensure MIFF sustains its position as a unique trade show, both online and onsite,” Goi said in a statement.
About 1,200 global buyers from over 100 countries and regions have registered with MIFF Furniverse with very strong numbers from North America, Africa and Eastern Europe joining the traditional core of MIFF buyers from Asia Pacific.
The registered buyers are mostly importers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, online shops, buying agents, and interior designers.
“We believe MIFF Furniverse is able to provide a unique online event experience and alternate digital solutions for our exhibitors and buyers to continue their business,” Goi said.
The MIFF Furniverse 2020 provided trade opportunities to over 1,000 furniture professionals worldwide. – Bernama
