The annual Perak Home Exposition (Homex), one of the biggest in northern Malaysia, will be back for the third consecutive year. The exposition is jointly organised by the Perak Furniture Makers’ and Dealers’ Associations and is endorsed by the Perak State Government and Ipoh City Council. Its other supporters are the Perak Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (Perak Branch), Perak Real Estate and Housing Developers’ Association (REHDA), Perak Electrical and Radio Dealers’ Association and others in the furniture industry.
The exposition will bring together manufacturers and buyers so they can compare prices and qualities of the products on display. A formal launch of the event was held at a prominent hotel in the city recently.
Last year, the exposition attracted some 60,000 visitors with a turnover of RM10 million. This year, the organisers have room for over a hundred exhibitors. They will operate from 300 booths, offering the latest household products, electrical appliances, furniture and many more. Rebates and discounts will be offered. Visitors stand to win attractive prizes in lucky draws held during the duration of the show.
The quality of products from Perak is equivalent to that of other countries. Although China is famous for its cheap prices, the quality does not match our local products. However, Malaysian products are still not known by many. Therefore, the objective of Perak Homex is to open the eyes of markets in East Asia such as Korea, Japan and China. Malaysia currently exports over RM7 billion worth of finished products to USA and Japan annually.
Perak Homex 2012 will be held at Stadium Indera Mulia, Ipoh beginning Thursday, December 6 till Sunday, December 9. Opening time is between 10am to 10pm daily. Call Ms Susan Hoh at 019-526 0187 or 05-243 9608 for details or visit: www.perakhomex.com.my.
