Organisers of the International Furniture Fair Singapore/ASEAN Furniture Show (IFFS/AFS) have revealed that the 2016 event will see a new layout alongside a change in show dates for the region’s premiere exhibition

Following on from the success of this year’s event, where over 39 countries were represented and record numbers were in attendance, International Furniture Fair Singapore Pte Ltd, the organisation behind the event, have stated that in 2016 there will be a fresh approach to fairground design. The show will run alongside The Décor Show and furniPRO Asia from 10-13 March 2016.

The show features a comprehensive range of interior offerings including furniture, furnishings, decorative accessories and interior fittings. Mr Ernie Koh, Chairman of IFFS Pte Ltd, shared, "The ASEAN furniture exhibition circuit is one that is gaining prominence on the global stage. This year, we had a robust group of manufacturers from a record number of 39 countries, with a significant increase in European presence. The industry can expect to see even richer content at IFFS next year, as we host some high profile U.S. brands here for the first time."

For the past three decades, the show has been regarded by industry experts as Asia's premier sourcing platform and design-led exhibition. Organisers say that the fuller range of exhibitors will promise a novel experience for visitors, and they indicate that they will release more details of the changes over the coming months.
