Indonesia's largest trade exhibition for the furniture production industry, The International Furniture Manufacturing Components Exhibition and Woodworking Machinery Exhibition (IFMAC & WOODMAC), organized by PT Wahana Kemalaniaga Makmur (WAKENI) is being rescheduled to 14 to 17 October 2020 at Jakarta International Expo, Kemayoran. Earlier planned for the 23 to 26 September 2020 at the same venue, this postponement rises from the current covid-19 pandemic situation that requires extensive implementation of social distancing regulations by businesses for general public safety across Indonesia.
"Following increased actions by Indonesia's Ministry of Health to contain the pandemic, we are mirroring the government's steps in making preventive plans that would prioritize the safety of our exhibitors, visitors and everyone that will be contributing to the exhibition happening in due course," said Mrs Rini Sumardi, Director of WAKENI.
Mrs Sumardi added that, "the health and wellbeing of everyone involved in IFMAC & WOODMAC is of utmost importance to us. We therefore have taken the necessary decision to postpone the exhibition, so as to better monitor the pandemic developments with regards to travel allowance and provide more time for logistical preparations to be made accordingly, especially to our exhibitors from abroad and those coming in from far ends of the country."
IFMAC & WOODMAC is being supported by Deutsche Messe as part of the LIGNA's Woodworking Shows Worldwide - leading exhibitions for the furniture manufacturing and woodworking industry. The exhibition also boasts support from various industry associations such as the Association of Indonesia Forest Concession Holders (APHI), Indonesian Wood Panel Association (APKINDO), Indonesian Furniture and Craft Industry Association (HIMKI), and China National Forestry Machinery Association (CNFMA) and others ' all of whom whose advice and consultation have been considered for this decision and conveyed their well wishes for a meaningful exhibition to take place still during the new dates.
The IFMAC & WOODMAC team looks forward to welcoming industry professionals at the exhibition in October this year and will be reaching out to all exhibiting companies, visitors and other stakeholders for support given this outcome.
