A subsidiary of the Singapore Furniture Industries Council, IFFS Pte Ltd.’s proven industry knowledge connects buyers with the world’s market leaders. It further serves as a platform to enhance more business opportunities and transactions in totality.
We chose to exhibit at IFFS to consolidate our current market and to look for new markets in Asia and the U.S., and I believe we’ve met our targets at the show. IFFS serves as the meeting point for our contacts and prospects, and I appreciate the effort the show has put into re-branding itself.
Visitor response has been great and we’ve been kept busy since the show started.
Based on what we’ve experienced, the visitorship is international and of high calibre. We’ve received a number of enquiries from new Asian, European, and Middle Eastern companies, so the team has been kept busy. IFFS was a great show for us – we’re happy with our results.
IFFS has exceeded our expectations yet again. We had a good show last year, and it’s even better this time around. The number of visitors at our stand on the first day was overwhelmingly good – we weren’t able to attend to everyone, which was a happy problem we had on hand.
We wanted to expand our presence in the APAC region and felt that IFFS was a good choice due to its central location
In the last few days, we met with our existing clients and made valuable, new connections here at IFFS. I’m very happy with what we’ve received – in particular, contacts for new retailers in markets we were not as strong in previously. I’ve always liked IFFS for the quality visitors and strong brands it attracts, and I think the organisers should definitely continue to focus on that area of strength.
Participating in IFFS allows us to showcase our wide range of high quality furniture and unique designs to potential customers, and to generate numerous business opportunities.
As an international platform, IFFS attracts professionals from all over the the world, and we were able to meet and engage with visitors from different sectors and countries. This definitely helps to widen our base of prospects.
KODA exhibits at IFFS yearly because it’s the best platform for product introduction. The premium exhibitors are gathered here, so we see all the right buyers – the ones looking for premium products.
We’re here to introduce our products to the industry, and more importantly, to see our existing customers in order to tighten our relationship with them and remain connected. This is our ‘home show’ so we’re able to do all the networking that we need to do very well here. I’ve met a lot of buyers that come here to source quality furniture, be inspired by design, and to gain new ideas.
IFFS/AFS is the place to be to meet quality buyers and buyer delegations. We met some of our customers with whom we have a long-term relationship with through IFFS and new customers continue to knock on our doors even after IFFS has ended.
The partnership that we have with IFFS is a special one, as we practically ‘grew up’ with the show. It’s a well-run event and the show team has always been open to explore marketing ideas with us. For those reasons, IFFS is an ideal platform for us to launch new collections each year. We’ve met a good variety of people this time, including retailers, distribution partners for new territories, and also specifiers for hospitality projects. Supplying to projects isn’t something we’ve done before, so it’ll be a brand new opportunity for us, if it goes through.
It’s our third time exhibiting at IFFS and we’re very happy with the tremendous response that we’ve gotten so far. Things were so busy at our stand on Day 1 that we wished there were more of us to handle all the enquiries! I think the show has a solid reputation and it draws in a good, international crowd. We’ve received high quality visitors and plenty of media interest at IFFS this year, which is exactly what we had hoped to achieve.
