With five months to go before FIMMA Brasil 2019, the furniture industry reacts and raise high expectations

Competitive edge and innovation are some of the proposals of the International Fair of Machines, Raw Materials and Accessories for the Furniture Industry (FIMMA Brasil) 2019 in the midst of a recovery scenario and good expectations for the furniture industry. The numbers confirm this good moment and show a reaction of the domestic market with a growth of 5.5% in the national furniture production in the first half of the year, according to data from IEMI - Market Intelligence.

Five months to go before its opening, FIMMA Brasil also confirms this good phase having 65% of its exhibit space sold and the confirmation of the presence of important national brands including Duratex, Berneck, Greemplac, Farben, Sayerlack, Killing, Akeo, Bigfer, Blum, Promob, Top Solid, Pontta, Be.Krick, Machine Pack, Vantec Lufati and Lutz.

Confident, the board invests in new features and the expansion of some segments aiming to increase the business options for one of the most important segments of the national economy. A space dedicated to stones, through the Mobstone project, is a way to bring together companies, designers, marble producers and their respective suppliers of machines and raw materials. The forestry area will be expanded with the intention of enhancing the importance of this sector as a supplier of wood for furniture.

Henrique Tecchio, president of FIMMA Brasil 2019, points out that times have changed. "There is an increasing obligation to be innovative and, especially as a fair, to be facilitators of a good experience for both our exhibitors and our visitors at the show. For the 2019 fair, we have been working hard to align with the most modern technologies and processes for the furniture industry. The way the fair is organized and especially the context in which it is set in, have made us add other segments and projects related to the theme of FIMMA 2019 - the competitive edge," he says.

The 14th FIMMA Brasil will also feature the Buyer’s Project, which completes 10 editions, that is, two decades of services bringing together Brazilian businessmen and foreign buyers in business meetings, in addition to technical visits; FIMMA Joiner, which seeks to encourage the development of small companies in the segment, facilitating their access to information and bringing professionals closer to the new products of the woodworking industry; FIMMA Workshop that offers a series of lectures to point out ways to competitive management of products, processes and innovation.
