71 countries attend Poland’s Meble Polska furniture expo

Meble Polska was held May 16-19 in Poland.

POZNAN, Poland –  Meble Polska, the largest furniture expo in Central and Eastern Europe, saw visitors from 71 countries, with 53% of its attendees coming from abroad. The show was held May 16-19.

“Even before the fair, it could be expected that the share of foreign furniture buyers would be a record this year,” said Józef Szyszka, director of the fair. “We were not sure if, after the pandemic, buyers would be ready for transcontinental travel, especially in view of the ongoing war in Ukraine. It turned out that our fears were unfounded.”

The total number of trade fair participants amounted to 11,491 people.

“This is obviously partly an effect of the strength of the Polish furniture sector and the huge interest in Polish furniture on foreign market,” said Szyszka.

In total, more than 230 companies exhibited from 10 countries: Denmark, Moldova, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Turkey and Ukraine.

“A large exposition of more than 25 companies from Ukraine attracted great interest,” said Szyszka. “Despite the aggression of Russia against this country, they decided to show their potential in Poznań.”

Furniture was shown across many categories, including solid wood case goods, upholstered furniture and mattresses.

The next edition of Meble Polska will take place Feb. 21-24, 2023.
