UBM to launch largest ever furniture exhibition in Indonesia

News this week: Organised by UBM Asia’s Indonesian subsidiary, PT Pameran Niaga Indonesia, the Indonesia International Furniture Expo (IFEX) will launch at the Jakarta International Expo (JIExpo) running from 11th to 14th March 2014. According to UBM, IFEX will fill up all seven indoor halls at JIExpo, as well as three additional temporary outdoor structures for extra exhibition space and themed pavilions.

IFEX is hosted by the Indonesia Furniture Association, AMKRI, and will feature a total of 700 exhibiting companies showcasing furniture, furnishings and furniture materials. The organiser expects more than 5,000 international buyers to attend the four-day show.

Christopher Eve, senior vice president of UBM Asia, commented, “Indonesia’s strong economic growth, vast population and enormous furniture industry make it a very exciting market for both buyers and sellers of furniture, fittings and equipment. IFEX is strategically timed in the spring cycle of furniture exhibitions in the Southeast Asian region that commences with UBM’s MIFF exhibition in Kuala Lumpur in early March. We expect a large number of international buyers to visit IFEX and source high quality and original products that they will not find anywhere else.”
