New initiatives to look forward to at next year’s International Furniture Fair Singapore

The International Furniture Fair Singapore (IFFS) returns in 2017, on 9 to 12 March at the Singapore EXPO. Next year’s fair will coincide with co-located events; the 34th ASEAN Furniture Show (AFS) and the inaugural Nook Asia. Together, these events mark an important period in Singapore’s calendar in their mission to celebrate design, invoke inspiration and facilitate business discussions.
Next year’s IFFS brings back the popular exhibitor pavilions, like the Outdoor Boulevard (for garden and/or outdoor offerings and the Design STARS Showcase (for product debuts by design talents from around the world), and will also introduce exciting, new initiatives.
New for 2017, IFFS welcomes the European Union Pavilion to the Nook Asia event. Organised in partnership with European Union Gateway Business Avenues, the pavilion is expected to house 50 design and interior companies hailing from 28 different EU countries.
One of the most highly anticipated new initiatives is the introduction of a unique experiential zone, curated by acclaimed local designer Nathan Yong. This feature area is designed to titillate the senses of visitors with a visual extravaganza. You’ll find a group of exhibitors, each presenting their best offerings under a collective theme, together with a central cafe and a bar.
Also new for IFFS is the exclusive, invitation-only Elite Club. Memberships is extended only to a select group of buyers and exhibitors upon careful evaluation against a stringent criteria. As a member of the Elite Club, you receive quality benefits and perks, such as access to the Elite Club’s Concierge and Lounge, refreshments and complimentary WiFi.
