The International Furniture Fair Singapore (IFFS), which is held at the Singapore Expo every year from 9 – 12 March, has consistently enjoyed good growth both in its exhibitor and visitorship numbers.

IFFS

It is one of the most important furniture trade fairs in Southeast Asia, in no small part due to its regular efforts to introduce wider offerings and new initiatives to its existing programme.

IFFS

The IFFS is essentially a trilogy of shows – the International Furniture Fair Singapore and ASEAN Furniture Show (IFFS/AFS), The Décor Show, and The Hospitality Show. Last year, it also added a new support event called ’Singaplural’, a programme across the city featuring installations, exhibitions, and other design-led activities aimed at engaging the crowd beyond the confines of the fair grounds.

This year, the 30th edition of IFFS has unveiled the following new elements:

A New Country Pavilion

While IFFS has traditionally received strong exhibitor support from China, India, Malaysia, Taiwan as well as the ASEAN countries, this year will see a French pavilion coming in for the first time – a positive indication of the event’s growing sphere of influence beyond the region.

The Hospitality Show will feature a new segment for Architectural and Design Services.

New Collections and Exhibitors

More than 80 per cent of exhibitors will be presenting their new designs for the first time at IFFS, while 14 per cent of repeat exhibitors will be taking on larger stands.

Also making a return is the second edition of the Hospitality.Design.Furniture Luxurious Projects Asia Summit & Awards, and the week-long Singaplural event (8 – 15 March) featuring over 200 installations and curated design spaces, symposiums, and competitions.
