MOSCOW, Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AMKRI, the Asosiasi Mebel dan Kerajinan Indonesia (Indonesia Furniture and Handicraft Manufacturers Association) have confirmed their presence with an official Indonesian furniture pavilion at FIDexpo, the Russian International Furniture Exhibition taking place in Moscow from 12-15 May 2014.
Pak Soenoto, Chairman of AMKRI said: "We are looking forward to bringing Indonesian furniture companies to Russia and looking to strengthen business relationships with the Russian market which is an important market for Indonesia. FIDexpo will be the perfect platform for us to showcase the impressive collection from Indonesia and the business matchmaking opportunities at the exhibition is the perfect way for us to conduct business and generate interest in our products."
Indonesia's diverse natural resources have a long tradition of use by Indonesian craftsmen, who for centuries have created exquisite designs that are finding their way into the global market.
The Taiwan Furniture Manufacturers Association have also confirmed their participation and visitors to FIDexpo will be able to view bedroom collections, cast iron beds and furniture suites by companies such as Trans - Gather Performance Inc., which already exports to the USA, UK, Germany, Australia, and Italy.
With increasing demand for high quality products, FIDexpo is a dedicated international event bringing new international manufacturers from Europe and Asia to network with buyers from Russia and the surrounding regions. Russia's membership in the WTO has also significantly reduced import tariffs presenting excellent opportunities for those wishing to enter the market. One of the key benefits FIDexpo offers is the unique matchmaking services provided for each exhibitor, a highly efficient way of doing business by ensuring that face-to-face meetings are conducted in a structured format.
ZOW Moscow, the annual international exhibition on furniture components and accessories, that attracts over 19,000 visitors, will be collocated with FIDexpo from 2014.
