Mr. Chua Chun Chai
President of Malaysian Furniture Council (MFC) &
Chairman of Export Furniture Exhibition (EFE)
On behalf of the Malaysian Furniture Council (MFC), I would like to bid a warm welcome to all our exhibitors, buyers and visitors to Export Furniture Exhibition (EFE) 2017. Returning for the thirteenth consecutive year, EFE 2017 is Asia’s premier furniture exhibition spread over eight halls, two levels and 30,000sqm of exhibition space featuring diverse range of furniture in one convenient and accessible location.
EFE 2017, a furniture trade exhibition by the industry for the industry, presented by the Malaysian Furniture Council (MFC), whom is the sole national furniture body in Malaysia has in the past year intensified engagement with various national and international government bodies, associations and private sectors. Armed with these valuable feedbacks, EFE 2017 returns better and stronger to make it the most important and comprehensive event in the furniture industry calendar drawing in quality exhibitors and influential buyers to Kuala Lumpur.
This year, the India Export Pavilion (IEP) will debut in Hall 8 featuring Malaysian designed and manufactured wooden furniture for the export markets of India and the world. It is the destination for sourcing competitively priced wooden furniture with the thoughtfully curated range of exhibitors accommodating various requests.
Increasing EFE’s profile as a design centered furniture trade fair, the much anticipated Professional Designers Program (PDP) will once again be held in EFE 2017. A program by the Malaysian Timber industry Board (MTIB), the PDP will showcase own designs by Malaysian and international designers with the prototypes manufactured by selected Malaysian furniture factories. This will lead the way in pushing the boundaries of furniture design and functionality.
I would like to thank our loyal and new exhibitors and partners for the continuous support. To our buyers, I invite you take your time visiting the exhibition over four days and wish you all the success in finalizing trade deals directly with the manufacturers. May it be a successful and rewarding time here at EFE 2017.
