Movelsul Brazil: 30 importers participate in Buyer Project

Foreigners companies accepted the invitation of Buyer Project and decided to go to Brazil in search of new products, competitive prices and trends launched by Brazilian furniture industry.

UK, Panama, Chile and Colombia were the countries that originated the five largest imports at the last edition of the fair, in 2012 – and its representatives will be there again this year. Also participating in the Buyer Project are traditional destinations of Brazilian furniture production such as United States and other Latin America countries.

Looking to diversify the list of buyers, the project also negotiated the presence of importers from Curaçao, Ghana and Saint-Martin. Although they are small markets, importers of these three countries also cater to neighboring markets.

In their countries of origin, the invited companies operate in different sectors, such as distribution and retailing, catering to all social classes. The total import of these companies reached an annual average annual of US$ 150 million during the last three years, and furniture for kitchens, bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms are the most popular in the Brazilian market. Following are upholstery, furniture for offices, garden furniture, restaurants, laundry, appliances and mattresses.

As in the last edition, the roundtables will be held at the booths themselves, allowing a more complete presentation by the exhibitors. A total of 112 Brazilian exporting companies are listed to participate.
