Three live Furniture Market Events will be organized in MIFF FURNIVERSE platform. The live events feature the Asia-Pacific Market, the North America & South America Market, and the Europe, Middle East & Africa Market. Each market is geo-targeted and customised according to your market’s time zone.
MIFF FURNIVERSE is easy to navigate. Buyers can browse through Exhibitor’s Booths at the (virtual) “Exhibition Hall.” Each virtual exhibitor’s booth includes information such as contact details, target markets and there are even brochures you can download. There will be opportunities to view products at different angles, complete with product specification information of different sizes, materials, colours, finishings, etc., as well as special deals and delivery or shipment schedules.
This will also be an excellent platform for buyers to springboard into the live interaction with suppliers via chat or video call, to schedule meetings with exhibitors and to establish unique contact with manufacturers and sellers. Buyers could also “drop your business card” to the exhibitor!
“MIFF FURNIVERSE can connect Malaysian and international furniture suppliers with trade buyers virtually from all parts of the world and there is no better time than the present when global retailers are looking for alternative suppliers. We aim to provide our customers a unique online event experience and alternate digital solutions to continue their business,” added by Karen Goi.
