INTRADE Malaysia 2014 focuses of the lifestyle cluster
INTRADE 2014 is the 8th Malaysia International Event for Exporters, aimed at enhancing networking, business matching, exchange of ideas and knowledge amongst the business fraternities from different countries. The 3-days exhibition will be held from 20th to 22nd of October 2014, at Menara MATRADE, Kuala Lumpur.
INTRADE 2013 saw excellent record of participation from the local and international export community; 10,000 square meters of exhibition space, with 8,594 trade visitors from 49 countries, 442 exhibitors from 18 countries, and 500 trade buyers from 57 countries. It is our belief that INTRADE 2014 will see even more improved participation as the global economy continues to recover.
This year, INTRADE 2014 shifts from a multi-industry cluster exhibition to a single-focused cluster, which is the highly versatile Lifestyle sector. With strong demand for stylish and niche lifestyle products rising from every facet of everyday life, the Lifestyle sector is a vibrant and sustainable sector where the marketplace is bursting with ready prospects. Lifestyle products and services are fast becoming a strong contributor to a nation’s economic development.
Within the Lifestyle sector, INTRADE 2014 will feature 7 trending, promising sub-categories, namely:-
– Fashion, apparel & textiles
– Accessories, footwear & jewellery
– Cosmetics, toiletries, health & wellness
– Gifts, souvenirs & stationery
– Home products & services
– Lifestyle electrical & electronics
– Interiors, furnishings & fittings
With the world population at 7 billion and growing, the value and potential of this cluster is immense, and INTRADE 2014 looks forward to exhibitors with creative, fresh ideas and innovative design in an array of lifestyle products which can be made available worldwide.
INTRADE 2014 highlights the positive role businesses can play in accelerating exports and presents a platform for advancing an efficient buyer-seller network. It is an event that helps corporations identify new export opportunities and position them for competitive advantage in international trade.
Export-ready companies are invited to take part as an exhibitor at INTRADE 2014.
