Kiev International Furniture Forum KIFF 2021 has finished!

March 15th, 2021 | Admin Admin | news eng

From the 3rd till the 6th of March 2021 Kiev International Furniture Forum KIFF 2021, the main annual furniture exhibition, went with a bang in the International Exhibition Centre. This year it was even more anticipated, because being tired of quarantine restrictions, we have been missing live meetings, novelties of textures, technologies, ideas and decorations!

Last year the Forum set an incredibly high standard of event holding and coverage. This year unfortunately the market itself had some limitations – but both exhibitors and visitors of the Forum are optimistic about the future, are ready to take responsibility to support innovations, creativity and bold ideas. It could be seen in stand designs, designer’s zones, projects presented by the speakers and guests of lecture zone, and in issues discussed at discussion panels. The lecture zone Territory of Opportunities ran non-stop: lectures, seminars and workshops both online and offline were being held from the opening till the last visitor of the exhibition. In general for 4 days at the lecture zone and in conference rooms of the IEC over 40 educational events for the most exquisite listeners took place –  from an export conference for those who want to supply their furniture to the leading European and American networks – to the presentation of charity projects driven by Ukrainian designers and publishers.

We are incredibly grateful to all of you: we had been dreaming, planning, designing, working and creating for this half a year and 4 days! This year was not an easy one, but it is not the time who dictates rules, but us. We create the history!

We look forward to seeing you in autumn, at Design Living Tendency from the 29th of September till the 1st of October 2021!
