With recorded sales of USD 908 in 2016, will feature 500 companies, attract an estimated 20,000 buyers from “over 100 countries”, states Ms. Karen Goi, General Manager, MIFF.
The event benefits from its cross-promotion across UBM and Alibaba.com platforms as a result of a strategic "online and offline" collaboration to create the next generation of B2B trade sourcing experiences.
Around 70 per cent of exhibitors are Malaysian companies while the rest are from overseas including from China, Taiwan , Japan , Indonesia , South Korea and Vietnam .
Speaking for the Chinese exhibitors in The China Hall, Ms. Lynn Liao, Deputy Director of CCPIT, claims the reason for the “70% rebooking rate” from these participants to be a combination of “global buyers”, creating a “valuable experience” for “better development” of businesses by opening up more markets.
Apart from the China Hall, there are also the Taiwan Hall with 30 companies and the Muar Hall with over 80 member companies.
