Massive investments in hospitality, real estate, tourism, retail and hospital sectors
across India have helped the furniture manufacturing industry enjoy a period of
steady growth. This growth has been reflected in our woodworking shows and
attracted a diverse selection of exhibitors from India and abroad, all focussed on
creating new business opportunities.
Business optimism across the show floor was also reported by exhibitors, many
of whom rated MumbaiWood 2017 as their best trade show of the year. The
predominant feedback from exhibitors was that they have met good quality
buyers who were ready to do business.
Our priority was to provide stimulating meetings, an environment for sharing
information, generating ideas and initiating collaborations.
