In its 3rd edition, WOFX welcomes more than 250 of the world’s most innovative companies from countries as diverse as Italy, Turkey, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Bangladesh and of course India. To be held at Bombay Exhibition Center, Goregaon East, Mumbai, from Thursday 17th to Saturday 19th November 2022, WOFX is the ideal sourcing and networking platform for importers, chain stores, hyper markets, trading houses, architects, interior designers, retailers, HORECA professionals, large format retailers, e-tailers, distributors, franchisees, agents, corporate sourcing heads, government procurement agencies and other key buyers.
The Indian furniture market is the world’s 4th largest and likely to reach USD 38 billion by 2026 from the current USD 18 billion registering an annual growth rate of over 13 per cent, making it one of the most attractive markets for this industry. The government’s progressive policies, focus on major infrastructure development plans, a strong manufacturing sector, coupled with a large consumer market are all indicators of high growth potential.

It is perhaps the most important international B2B platform in India dedicated to the Furniture & Design industry for companies looking to expand their markets and for international companies who wish to enter the vast Indian and South Asian market.”
