MIFB 2016 ended on a very successful note at the end of July, with exhibitors, sponsors, government agencies and associations from around the world relishing the networking opportunity.
“We are delighted to report the exhibition grew both in terms of exhibitors participating as well as geographical locations from where they originated. MIFB 2016 featured 494 companies from 40 nations, which contributed to a 35 percent increase compared to 2015,” said organisers.
This year marked the second year where the MIFB exhibition saw a remarkable trade turnout of 18,043 from 58 nations, translating to an 18.6 percent increase from the previous show.
A total of 110 international and local buyers make up those who attended and helped host the event; including the likes of Aiking Trading, Excel Foods, Garming Marine Products (Sunwah Group), Pegasus Import, Pulmentum, Safco International, Siam Makro, AEON Big, Berjaya Hotels & Resorts, Concorde Hotel, Fraser & Neave Holding, Lulu Retail Group, Sunway Berhad and many more.
“Through our specially designed Business Matching Platform and our cohesive programme, we managed to generate 1,043 matches/meetings. Our hosted buyers were very happy and reported that they found the exhibition to be a very good sourcing ground. Through their response and reports we foresee purchasing taking place with an estimated amount of at least US$360 million,” organisers reported.
A host of new, targeted and focused promotional and marketing activities was implemented in order to get the right stakeholders into the exhibition. “We are pleased to report that we have achieved the objective which was set and also assure that this will not stop us from doubling the effort in the next MIFB show.”
