The range of products and designs will position MIFF as the biggest export showroom for Malaysian solid wood furniture and office furniture in Southeast Asia. The milestone event, organized by Informa Markets Malaysia, anticipates more than 20,000 visitors from 140 countries and regions.

This year, MIFF is also introducing the Furniverse App, a tool for personalizing the journey, connecting with suppliers, and exploring products across the two venues to further enhance the experience. The app will offer details on exhibitor offerings, booth locations, special events, and more.

To celebrate MIFF’s 30th anniversary, a virtual tree planting initiative, which aims to promote a sustainable future for the industry will bring exhibitors and buyers together to emphasize wood as an environmentally friendly raw material. Networking events, such as Buyers’ Night and MIFF Industry Seminars, will also provide opportunities for networking.

This year’s MIFF Furniture Design Competition theme is “Chair-Volution: Celebrating 30 Years of Innovation and Design,” which will challenge participants to create statement pieces and aim to attract young designers to the industry. Winners will be announced on the third day of the event, alongside exhibitor awards for Best Presentation and Furniture Excellence.
