Speaking at the launch event, Mrs. Nus Nuzulia Ishak, Director General for National Export Development of the Ministry of Trade, said, “I sincerely hope that IFEX 2015 will spur further growth of the Indonesian furniture and craft industries and will inspire innovation and creativity of domestic artisans.” Mr. Soenoto, Chairman of AMKRI remarked, “Indonesia’s furniture exports last year totaled $1.8 billion, making us the 18th biggest furniture exporter in the world. I am certain that this exhibition will play a significant role in helping Indonesia achieve its target of $5 billion in exports of furniture and craft products within the next four years.” Over the years, Indonesia has come to be known as a resource for quality, hand-made wood furniture made with indigenous resources. That image showed up at previous Indonesia International Furniture Expo held on March from 11-14, 2014 in Jakarta. However, the show did more than just highlight wood furniture. It also highlighted indoor and outdoor upholstery, accent furniture and occasional tables and seating made with a variety of natural and synthetic woven materials.
The show also showed a line of sofas and occasional tables with synthetic woven materials as well as a line of lounge chairs and outdoor dining tables and companion chairs.
The show had over 400 exhibiting companies and drew about 6,113 trade visitor buyers.
