International Exhibitions and Conference Group Pty Ltd (IEC Group) will be organising the inaugural International Furniture Show Australia at the International Convention Centre, Sydney from 12 to 14 July 2018.
The International Furniture Show Australia presents a fantastic opportunity for Australian retailers and wholesalers to deal directly with furniture manufacturers from a wide range of source countries including China, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines and Pakistan. It also serves as an excellent platform for Australian furniture manufacturers to reach out to buyers from within Australia and New Zealand.
Ms Marie Kinsella, CEO of the IEC Group and an industry veteran with many years of experience organising furniture trade shows: “We operate in a global trading environment and there is no denying that many of our Australian wholesalers and retailers have increasingly been going direct to source markets to seek furniture manufacturers. Instead, IEC Group is now bringing them to Australia to engage on home soil.”
She added: “We are indeed honoured that the Australian Furniture Association is a supporting sponsor of AFA Australian and International Members participating in the inaugural event.”
Ms Patrizia Torelli, CEO of the Australian Furniture Association: “The AFA continues its role of supporting all its Members across all levels of business. This event provides a segment of our Membership with another opportunity to engage with buyers and we believe that the IEC Group will deliver an event fit for this purpose. The special discount rates that have been offered to AFA Members will contribute to keeping the cost of doing business at a reasonable level and in this very dynamic and competitive market, it can only be a good thing. Buyers will be encouraged to look for the AFA Member logo when making their purchasing decisions to ensure that they are dealing with reputable and compliant suppliers.”
International Furniture Show Australia is extending an exclusive discounted floor space offer to AFA Members to participate at the show. AFA Platinum Members will enjoy a 30% off the Floor Space Rate while AFA Business International and Importer members will see a savings of 25% and 20% respectively.
