With Covid-19 now mostly contained, Vietnam International Furniture and Home Accessories Fair (VIFA EXPO) — one of the biggest and prestigious trade shows for exporting timber products and furnishings in Southeast Asia — is returning to Ho Chi Minh City from August 31 to September 3, 2022. With an increasing global demand for imported furniture, Vietnam has emerged as a leading furniture muanufacturing destination in recent years. The primary goal of VIFA is to showcase Vietnamese furniture, home decoration products, and hand-crafted upholstery. The slogan of VIFA EXPO 2022 is discovering the fascination of Vietnamese Furniture & Handicraft and creating a collaborative space for domestic exhibitors to showcase new and diverse products to an international audience. A wide range of products will be on display: indoor and outdoor furniture (including sofas, tables, chairs, beds, cabinets, shelves, kitchen furniture), home decors, gifts & souvenirs, hardware & fittings, timbers and woodworking machinery. By participating in the event, companies would gain valuable insights on needs, tastes, and current trends in the market to innovate technologies, improve products, and serve customers more effectively.
Where is this event?
VIFA Expo 2022 will take place in the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) from August 31 to September 3. Please visit the VIFA’s official website for more information.
Why should you attend VIFA?
Having enjoyed tremendous growth over recent years, Vietnam is now the world's second-largest furniture exporter, doing business with over 120 countries. Some prominent trade partners are the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Japan. The Fair will serve as the gathering place for all international furniture manufacturers and buyers.
Domestic and international buyers participating in VIFA EXPO 2022 will get an opportunity to meet with leading local and global furniture manufacturers, discuss partnerships, and make deals. There are many opportunities to collaborate and initiate commercial relationships. In addition to showcasing booths, organizers will set up virtual trade matchmaking sessions to help international buyers (who cannot travel to Vietnam) to reach out to exhibitors. There are also many factories within one to three hours drive from the trade show location in nearby provinces of Binh Duong, Dong Nai, and Long An.
As a bonus point, the occasion is also the perfect chance to learn more about the Vietnamese market as well as to explore the culture and heritage of the Southeast Asian country. If you are in the market for new furniture or home décor products, the event is for you!
