CHENGDU, China, July 27, 2015 / PRNewswire — FUJI SEIKI came to Chengdu, Sichuan, China on July 26, 2015, signing a $10 million purchase contract with Chengdu TFLiDo Sofa, whose products will land Osaka, Kyoto and other Japanese cities in this October. Those products will be sold through e-commerce all over Japan.
TFLiDo Sofa general manager Zhang Yongxiang said the huge order was signed at the 16th IFFC. Founded in 2000, the IFFC has successfully been held for 16 years. This year, the fair was divided into two parts, Part I: Finished Furniture Fair from July 3rd to 6th and Part II:Furniture Manufacturing & Supply Fair from July 12th to 15th, covering a total area of 170,000 square meters.

A total of 266,000 visitors (incl. 211,000 specialized purchasers) attended this fair.

China’s top-grade manufacturing places and first-class brands also proactively participated in this fair to counter the decline in furniture exports by expanding the potential of China’s furniture market.
Furniture association presidents and secretary generals from Thailand, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines and other Asian Furniture Confederation members were invited to the 16th IFFC.
