  IFFS 2018 starts on a joyous note  
 
The International Furniture Fair Singapore 2018 (IFFS 2018) opened its gates on March 8, welcoming trade professionals from the furniture, interior design, and furnishing industries from all over the world, including 400 hosted buyers. Over the next four days, along with the co-located 35th ASEAN Furniture Show (AFS) and NOOK Asia 2018, the trilogy of fairs will feature noteworthy design-led exhibits presented by 374 exhibitors from 26 countries.


Mr Ernie Koh, Chairman of IFFS Pte Ltd, shared, “We have designed IFFS 2018 to be a remarkable, holistic show that offers fruitful experiences to the industry, with carefully picked brands and first-in-class content. As part of our progression into the next phase of growth, we will be shifting to the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands, where we will continue to inspire greater ideas and innovate better designs.”


This year, IFFS will be revolutionising the show experience for its participants by presenting a number of innovative technological features. For the first time ever, IFFS partners with MixGo, a Singapore-based augmented reality company, to provide an interactive 4D experience of products from 13 participating exhibitors, including Linie Design, Sacra, and Unipanel, to name a few.


The furniture retailing experience will also be reinvented through the fair’s partnership with D5 Innovation. Much like last year’s virtual reality feature, visitors will be able to digitally visualise living spaces with furniture and furnishings from industry-leading companies like Koda, Ningbo Antique House, Vita Copenhagen, Gautier, and many more.


Design Meets Business


As part of its mission to create a design and business rich environment to inspire greater ideas, better designs, and enhanced business opportunities, IFFS presents a focused mix of new and returning features this year. Trade visitors can look forward to novel experiences at CARTE BLANCHE, an exclusive feature area presented in collaboration with TANKE.LONDON/, curated by Chantal Hamaide and directed by ARRO Studio; The Italian New Renaissance by Giulio Cappellini; the Design STARS showcase featuring 10 up-and-coming global design talents; a record total of 15 National Pavilions; the International Designer Showcase; and nine complimentary Design × Business Seminars.


Brand New Venue and Ideas for IFFS 2019


Scheduled to take place from March 9 to 12, IFFS 2019, together with co-locating shows, 36th ASEAN Furniture Show and NOOK Asia 2019 will be held at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands. This premium venue, while retaining existing trade buyers, will also attract a new wave of international audiences, and provide a promising environment for IFFS to promote trade and contribute to the growth of the industry.


Addressing the move, Mr Koh commented, “Trade shows are ever evolving and through all the changes, our DNA still remains the same — to deliver top notch, design-focused content, invoke innovative ideas, and to facilitate excellent business opportunities. With our focused features, we’re confident that this, and the upcoming editions will inspire our trade visitors and most importantly, meet their business needs.”
