NEWS: The 17th edition of  AIFF is evolving into Australia’s largest virtual furniture trade marketplace this September. AIFF 360 is a 5-day, trade-only virtual event that will take place from Monday 28 September to Friday 2 October 2020.

For the last 17 years, AIFF has been Australia’s leading networking and buying destination for the furniture industry; this year will be no exception.

Packed full of practical tips, vibrant networking spaces and inspirational products, this is the region’s premier furniture event for 2020.

Originally scheduled to take place in Melbourne in July, we’re taking the event completely virtual this year, with the return of the physical trade show in July 2021.

An Experiential Furniture Trade Marketplace

Hosted on a dynamic exhibition platform that combines slick technology with usability, AIFF 360 will allow exhibitors to showcase the latest bedroom furniture, mattresses and beds, lounge and dining room furniture, outdoor and garden and other furniture and services categories.

‘We are very excited to launch AIFF 360!’ says Chris May, Exhibition Director.

“This will be Australia’s leading furniture marketplace, which will enable retail chains and independent retailers to place orders, network, interact and learn about inspirational new products from our participating companies, as well as discovering the latest furniture trends, and learn from our internationally renowned Seminar Series.”

“For the last 17 years we have been Australia’s premier furniture buying and networking event. Now we will transform into a furniture marketplace that goes far beyond the physical event.”

Be inspired, meet with leading companies, and spearhead your business strategy – all from the stylish comfort of your home or office!

Connecting the furniture industry around Australia…and beyond

The launch of the 360 platform is set to open even more doors for the Australian furniture industry.

With traditional barriers to attendance removed, visitors and exhibitors can connect from across the APAC region and beyond as never before.
