8. Our Credentials, Your Promise
We understand your needs more than anyone else. Unlike other fairs, we are organised by the industry, the Singapore Furniture Industries Council.

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.
As a manufacturer and exporter of Indian wooden furniture, my main objective is to meet importers and distributors who are keen on bringing our products to their markets. We managed to meet people from literally all over the globe, including buyers from the ASEAN region, Europe, Americas, and Australia. We are 100 percent certain of returning for the next edition.
I believe the new venue will pique people’s curiosity, and a different audience will be keen to come see the fair. Some of our customers come specially to meet with us here, and we’ve also received quality new leads from all over the world — from as far as South America, South Africa, and Europe. It was a fruitful time here at IFFS, and we’ll be there at MBS next year!
IFFS is the only furniture show we participate in within Asia. We’ve grown substantially thanks to the overwhelming support from IFFS, SFIC, and other exhibitors, who gave us the confidence to fire away with our ideas. Specifically, IFFS helps to increase the exposure of local design talents to the global design industry. Singapore has much to show to the world, and everybody stands to benefit from the move.
I’ve always dreamt of being able to design for companies around the globe, be it in Australia, Asia, the UK, or in Europe, and IFFS is helping me in my journey with its many international buyers and visitors. My friend was the one who introduced me to IFFS — we were both very impressed by what IFFS offered, so I decided to participate.
Global markets are picking up and we’re here as a 17-company pavilion to bring Indonesia products to worldwide audiences. The IFFS platform helps our companies to gain good international visibility, so we hope to continue this collaboration at the new venue next year and beyond.
Our pavilion features 16 companies this year, and in total, IFFS 2018 welcomes over 50 Indian exhibitors, the largest group of Indian companies ever to participate at this show. Our companies are able to meet serious international buyers here, from Australia, New Zealand, and even Latin America. The feedback we’ve received so far is that this year’s result has already been better than last year’s. We look forward to more positive business exchanges over the next few days.
It’s our first time exhibiting here, at the Outdoor Boulevard. Though visitor quantity wasn’t as high as we’re used to, the quality of visitors to our booth has been high. We’re happy with our results and are keen to return. With the new venue, we hope to receive visitors of even higher quality next year.
Asif design group has been exhibiting at IFFS for 8 years in a row. Thought trade shows are generally not seeing high traffic, I still invest in a few important shows a year. We have two booths at IFFS 2018 because I wanted to be sure to maximise my opportunities here. I’m positive about the move to MBS and may consider a larger booth next year.
The last time we exhibited here was seven years ago, so we decided to return again to grow our pool of leads. We have made some good connections so far, and even made a positive, unexpected connection for our other business.
We are exhibiting here for the first time to test the market and collect leads. The next venue is something to consider as we’re hoping to meet a greater pool of international buyers who are keen on our style of outdoor furniture.
It’s our first time exhibiting at IFFS so we’ll have to see how the leads pan out over the next few months. This is the only show in Southeast Asia that we’re participating in this year. We’re here to reach international audiences and have positive expectations about the results.
I’m looking forward to the show moving to MBS as I had taken part in M&O for two years before joining NOOK Asia. This is my second year here and though the show is a little quieter, the quality of visitors is high, and I’ve had positive responses so far. If it makes sense for the brand, we will be back again next year.
