The inaugural edition of the India International Furniture Fair (IIFF) will take place in Mumbai at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre from 16 to 18 November, 2011 featuring over 80 premium furniture brands.
The show will be organised by MP International Pte Ltd (MPI) in partnership with the International Furniture Fair Singapore (IFFS) Pte Ltd featuring special country pavilions including Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, China and Spain. Over 70 per cent of the exhibitors will be from overseas.
Commenting on the occasion, Sylvia Phua, chief executive officer, MP International said,“As an established tradeshow organiser and owner of the Singapore International Furniture Show which has been held since 1981, we believe we can value-add to the Indian furniture market by providing a credible buyer-seller meeting place for industry members to source innovative, new-to-market product offerings and keep abreast of major global design and industry trends.”
“I believe that we are here at the right place and at a right time. In addition to the dynamic and enormous market, there is a lack of a reputable international platform in India for leading furniture brands from around the world to launch their product lines,” added Phua.
James Goh, president, SFIC said, “Through IIFF we look forward to be a part of the growing Indian furniture industry. We believe that India and Singapore can be key commercial partners. Trade buyers and end-consumers can look forward to Singapore’s trademark reliability and consistency in quality and service from the companies under the Singapore Mozaic umbrella.”
MPI specialises in organising exhibitions, conferences and special events. It is a leading international organiser of trade exhibitions, including ITMA and ITMA Asia.
