470+ Exhibitors at UBM’s Indonesian Furniture Show

March 24, 2015

Reportedly Indonesia’s largest furniture trade show, Indonesia International Furniture Expo (IFEX) 2015, ran for four days from 12th to 15th March at Jakarta International Expo (JIExpo). Organised by PT Dyandra UBM International, a joint venture company of UBM Asia and Dyandra, IFEX utilised all halls at JIExpo as well as several large temporary halls.

More than 470 exhibitors showcased a wide range of contemporary and traditional furniture products, with a special focus on wooden and rattan furniture products. Highlighting the importance of the furniture industry and furniture exports for the country’s economy, the show was opened by Indonesia’s President, Mr. Joko Widodo. The organiser expected to attract around 8,000 trade buyers.

Ernst K. Remboen, president director of PT Dyandra UBM International, commented, “The furniture industry in Indonesia is enjoying very robust growth on the back of strong exports and surging domestic demand. The nation has abundant supplies of sustainable raw materials such as wood, rattan, bamboo and natural textiles, as well as a highly skilled labour force and extensive manufacturing capacity. The size of IFEX is expanding each year, and I expect that it will soon become one of the key events in the global calendar of furniture exhibitions.”
