Mr. Chua Chun Chai

Chairman of Export Furniture Exhibition (EFE)

Warmest Greetings from Export Furniture Exhibition and Malaysia!

Export Furniture Exhibition (EFE) is internationally known to global buyers from all over the world as one of the top furniture fairs in Southeast Asia and the fair continues to attract more and more trade visitors annually. The exhibition is the signature event of the Malaysian Furniture Council (MFC) and organized by EFE Expo Sdn Bhd., a wholly-owned company of MFC.

The Malaysian furniture industry has commendably thrived because of its strong downstream sector and is one of the few industries in Malaysia that can proudly stand out for its products as truly ‘Made-in-Malaysia”. The global furniture market is growing with market gravity shifting towards the Asia Pacific region and Malaysian furniture manufacturers can look forward to enjoying a much larger slice of the market share. With the ongoing US-China trade war and strong US currency, Malaysia has the advantage and has benefited our nation with increase in furniture export. Thus, the outlook for the Malaysian furniture industry is certainly bright.

Present furniture exhibition trends have taken on a new outlook with a comprehensive of a large variety of various types of products from workplace furniture, semi-finished goods, wood-working machinery, furniture accessories, hospitality furniture, raw materials, project and contract furniture besides home and office furniture. Global international buyers and professionals, wholesalers, retailers, distributors, dealers, designers, architects, contract consultants including local project planners are cordially invited to EFE2020.

With 16 years of experience, EFE has served great opportunities to SMEs, entrepreneurs, furniture manufacturers, buyers and visitors with good business, networking and at the same time generated export revenue for the nation. Being bold and distinctive, EFE2020 is set to attract more buyers with its larger exhibition space at KLCC which has newly expanded its venue exhibition space. One of the major highlights of EFE2020 is the inauguration of the “Office Furniture Hall” with the latest innovative and modern creative office furniture.

Our exciting exhibitors look forward to welcome all buyers and visitors to view their latest collections and designs for bedrooms, living area, kitchens, children, office, hotel lounges and outdoor living.

Last but not least, my appreciation and heartfelt thanks to all our exhibitors and partners for your continuous support. My heartfelt thanks to EFE team to make 2020 another successful year. I look forward to another successful and rewarding businesses for all buyers, visitors and exhibitors.

Thank you.
