The Organiser of the Malaysian International Furniture Fair (MIFF) 2020 has announced new dates of 30 June – 3 July for the show to take place in the Malaysia International Trade Exhibition Centre (MITEC), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
MIFF 2020 was originally scheduled from March 6-9 but has now rescheduled to a later date from 30 July – 3 July 2020. According to Informa Markets, the Organiser of MIFF 2020, the decision is taken with regret after careful consideration and close consultations with stakeholders following the concerns and uncertainties arising from travel disruptions and other circumstances due to concerns of the COVID-19 situation. We seek the understanding of participants and the international buyers who had looked forward to attending the show in March and regret any inconvenience.
Some countries have recently issued travel advisories and companies are restricting the travel of their executives. In light of the constantly evolving situation, we have taken the difficult decision to reschedule the event. “We appreciate the international buyers who had looked forward to attending the show from March 6 to 9 and hope to have their continued support to attend on the new date, ” said MIFF founder and chairman Datuk Dr. Tan Chin Huat.
MIFF has built a global reputation over the past 25 years and serves buyers from 140 countries and regions. With the new dates, we will continue our work to generate more business opportunities for the show.
The COVID-19 situation in Malaysia is under control. The health situation is being managed by the Ministry of Health, National Disaster Management Agency and various other ministries and agencies under a committee chaired by the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato’ Seri Dr. Wan AzizahWan Ismail. We have been adhering to the precautions and safety measures as recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and are taking their guidance and recommendations seriously.
We understand the Organiser of MIFF’s decision to reschedule the show due to the impact on international travel and other commercial considerations. It is my sincere hope that the delegates would benefit from the event and take the opportunity to experience Malaysia in conjunction with Visit Malaysia 2020. On behalf of MyCEB, I look forward to welcoming all international buyers to Malaysia and wish all of you an enjoyable and fruitful event in June 2020,” said Dato’ Sri Abdul Khani bin Daud, Chief Executive Officer of Malaysia Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB). MIFF is the biggest furniture trade show in Southeast Asia. In 2019, the show drew over 600 Malaysian and foreign exhibitors and more than 20,000 visitors including over 6,000 international buyers.
Despite the unforeseen event, Informa Markets will continue to work closely with all participants to ensure the success of MIFF 2020, 30 June – 3 July. They also expressed their sincere sympathies for those affected in China and other countries and hope the situation will return to normal as soon as possible.
