The second edition of FIDexpo international furniture b2b exhibition will be held April 20-23, 2015 at Pavilion 75 of the VDNH in Moscow as part of a large complex of furniture trade events.
It was decided to execute this exhibition in April (FIDexpo 2014 was held in May) in response to numerous requests of furniture companies’ directors. New dates were chosen according to the international trade event calendar and allow all interested companies showcasing their products and visiting the show before the traditional May holidays in Russia.
FIDexpo 2015 will be mostly targeted to promote Russian furniture, develop interregional trade among the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union, advance the interests of furniture companies of the Union in the global market, and get state authorities engaged in the issues of furniture industry. To achieve these goals, the exhibition organisers RESTEC® Exhibition Company and UBM, as well as the project strategic partner, the Association of Furniture and Woodworking Enterprises of Russia (AMEDORO), will employ all local and international contacts.
In 2015 the FIDexpo show will be held in a new format: new special zones will be arranged at the venue: ‘Functionality and Ergonomics’, ‘Services for the Furniture Business’, ‘Job Fair’ and other. Young specialists will enjoy particular attention: in this regard ‘Future Prospects’ project will be launched featuring the competition for students and professionals under 30.
Trade and procurement specialists are invited to FIDexpo 2015, such as: wholesale traders, furniture distributors, retail companies, trade chains, HoReCa buyers and designers. Thanks to special visitor programmes effectively implemented in 2014, the project will attract trade missions not only from remote regions of Russia, but also from EU states.
A special emphasis at the show will be given to communication among visitors and exhibitors. The business programme events will be optimised thanks to the Matchmaking service. This service will allow arranging meetings with potential partners in advance, agreeing upon the agenda of meetings, personilising event schedule. In 2014 over 2000 meetings were appointed and held thanks to the Matchmaking, featuring negotiations between visitors and exhibitors and meetings between visitors of the show.
FIDexpo 2015 will be held in the framework of the Russian Furniture Industry Forum, a unique congress and exhibition project for all specialists of the furniture industry. The Forum Programme will also encompass the 12th International Exhibition of Components and Accessories ZOW, the 2nd exhibition for technology, equipment and tools for furniture and woodworking industry TEKHNODREV Furniture and a varied business programme focused on workshops, master classes and trainings for mid-level managers.
