HCM CITY (VNS) — Around 270 local and foreign companies will showcase their newest products and services at Vietbuild Home 2014, to be held at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre from December 27 to 31.
Focusing on interior and exterior products and home appliances, Vietbuild Home, the first of its kind in HCM City, will feature nearly 900 booths displaying a wide range of products including movable partitions, metal ceilings, doors and windows and accessories, paints, handicrafts, wallpapers, bathroom equipment, electronics, cooling devices and wooden furniture.
Nguyen Dinh Hung, chairman of the Vietbuild Construction International Exhibition Organising Corporation, said 20 per cent of exhibitors were foreign firms from Thailand, South Korea, Singapore, the US, Malaysia, Japan, Italy and Germany.
Demand for interior and exterior furnishing items usually increased at the year-end as people renovated their houses to welcome Tet, said Pham Van Bien, head of the event's organisation board. Therefore, the event provided a well-timed opportunity for companies to market their products and consumers to seek home decor goods. — VNS
