With the biggest ever Malaysian International Furniture Fair (MIFF) just eight weeks away, show organiser UBM Malaysia and strategic partner, Muar Furniture Association (MFA), held a pre-exhibition symposium and dinner for industry players in the southern region here tonight.

The packed affair held at SKT Banquet Hall, Muar was to update MIFF exhibitors who will be showcasing at the new Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) during MIFF 2018 and leading industry event in Southeast Asia from March 8-11.

Nearly 200 representatives from as many as 100 furniture companies in Muar and Batu Pahat attended the event. They include major exporters such as Poh Huat Furniture Industries, Chuan Heng Furniture Products, Ivorie International, Favourite Design, Mobilia Design, Sin Wee Seng Industries and SSH Furniture.

“The overwhelming response to our gathering today reflects the excitement of the exhibitors over the new MITEC venue and their expectations of high quality support and service from us again. Many of them are major long-term exhibitors of MIFF and the rest are young companies that look to MIFF as their platform to build a global export base,” said MIFF General Manager Ms Karen Goi.
