The ninth edition of the Furniture Expo 2023 will kick off in Kathmandu’s Bhrikutimandap Exhibition Hall from September 27 to October 1, 2023. The expo is the flagship event of Nepal Furniture and Furnishing Association (NFFA). According to the NFFA more than 50 per cent of the stalls of the exhibition venue have been already booked.
Dinesh Agarwal, President of the association, said that the expo is being launched with the aim of bringing the goods and services produced in Nepal under one roof for the upliftment of Nepal’s furniture and furnishing sector. “When the economic activities are slowing down, we believe that the expo will help to keep the market running,” he said. According to Nikunj Agrawal, coordinator of the expo, there will be more than 100 stalls in the expo.
He said that the expo will mainly focus on furniture and furnishing materials, manufacturers, importers, distributors, machinery and technology transfer, dealers and businessmen. It will provide a common platform for national and international brands to guide them in an easy way to reach the consumers and play a role in providing the customers with the latest products and information from the sector. We also aim to provide a common platform to furniture and furnishing material manufacturers, machinery suppliers, importers, distributors, dealers, interior designers, startups and people interested in working in the furniture industry, remarked Agrawal.
