IFMAC & WOODMAC 2020 rescheduled to next year
Published on : Monday, July 6, 2020
The International Furniture Manufacturing Components and Woodworking Machinery Exhibition (IFMAC & WOODMAC) 2020 edition will be postponed to October 12 – 15 next year. PT Wahana Kemalaniaga Makmur (WAKENI), IFMAC & WOODMAC’s organizer and its industry partners including Deutsche Messe representing LIGNA have conclusively decided on prioritizing plans for the next cycle that will be held at the same venue, Jakarta International Expo, Kemayoran in October 2021.
“Given prolonged uncertainty on the lifting of travel restrictions by the Indonesian government due to the COVID-19 situation, we unfortunately have to come to this difficult but necessary decision. IFMAC & WOODMAC is an international exhibition with large foreign company participation and draws far-wide visitorship from overseas and across Indonesia. All efforts will now be focused on bringing industry players together for a stronger exhibition in 2021 to support the spring back of Indonesia’s furniture industry. Through this challenging process, we also take the opportunity to thank all partners, confirmed exhibitors and visitors who have supported us with their warm wishes to keep the IFMAC & WOODMAC spirit going until we meet again next year,” said Mrs. Rini Sumardi, Director of WAKENI.
The health, safety and travel security of all exhibiting and visiting professionals are key conditions for IFMAC & WOODMAC to continue successfully. Ample preparation time for the 2021 edition will allow WAKENI to provide optimal logistical and marketing support to each exhibiting company expecting a conducive return to Indonesia’s valued furniture market. Trade visitors and buyers can also look forward to a well-organized full-scale trade platform to connect with prospective business partners directly again.
