VIFA Furniture 2014 fair in Vietnam | Vietnam International Furniture & Home Accessories Fair 2014
UPDATE: Click here for VIFA 2016 Vietnam International Furniture Fair 2016
Many buyers and other furniture professionals will be flying into Vietnam next month to visit the VIFA furniture fair.
This is a great opportunity for factories to showcase their talent and promote their goods to the eyes of international furniture retailers, wholesalers and all other types of industry professionals.
You may also meet furniture designers that are looking for a factory to produce the designs they have created and that only exist at that point as a 3D drawing of a furniture item.
Interior decorators, architects and contract furniture professionals will attend in the hopes of finding new sources of supply for their projects and of course, to switch their sourcing from other countries like China that have lost competitiveness in terms of pricing to purchasing furniture in Vietnam.
You will also find some logistics companies since this service is essential to anyone looking to import furniture from Vietnam, wherever the port of destination may be (i.e.: Japan, Europe, U.S.A., Gulf Coast, etc.).
The VIFA furniture fair will be running from the 11th to the 14th of March 2014.

Please note that most of the most important or definitely our favorite furniture producers and factories do not exhibit at VIFA fair and they choose rather to exhibit at the Singapore or Cologne furniture fairs.

Enjoy your visit to Vietnam’s furniture fair this March 2014!
The show is over for 2014, honestly, not a very stimulating show. Despite the usual furniture producers, not really many changes from last year, perhaps even less exhibitors. You could walk through in 30 minutes which is quite astounding given the size of the displays and the amount of exhibitors at other furniture fairs in the region (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, etc.), without mentioning of course China and it multiple numerous giant furniture fairs.
