A fair of increasing importance
The event is very popular. Last year’s edition was attended by nearly 22,000 people from 69 countries. Foreign guests constituted as much as 38% of the total number of visitors, they came mainly from Germany, Ukraine and the Czech Republic. This excellent result shows that the evolution that the fair has undergone over the years has proved to be the right choice. Already 5 years ago, Jerzy Szyszka, the director of the fair, indicated that the change of their name (adding the word “Poland” to it) strengthened the image of the event. The importance of the event is also built up by the number of buyers from foreign chains, leading buyers of Polish furniture, which every year increases.
