The Malaysian International Furniture Fair (MIFF) 2020 has been rescheduled from 6-9 March to 30 June to 3 July at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre.
Informa Markets, the organiser of MIFF 2020, said this decision was taken with regret after careful consideration and close consultations with stakeholders.
The problem is that the risks from the current virus outbreak cannot be accurately assessed and some countries have issued travel advisories and companies are restricting travel of their executives. A one month delay will have little impact on retailers who tend to prepare for the new season with orders placed during the fair but if there are further postponements retailers struggle to secure new designs for the coming season.
The greatest challenge now is the uncertainty.
