The 2nd Vientiane Furniture Fair will be held at the Lao ITECC (old hall) in Vientiane Capital from April 1-9, 2017.
The Vientiane Furniture Fair aims to exchange experiences on the development of products and skills, marketing strategies, and removal of challenges, the Vice President of the Lao Furniture Association, Mr Kongmala Phommalay, said at a press conference held in Vientiane Capital last Friday.
The association also aims to promote forest preservation through more sustainable growing, harvesting techniques and processing of wood, rattan and bamboo.
The association hopes to raise the value of Lao wood and furniture products by increasing quality and integrating modern technology to meet market demands, Mr Kongmala said.
At the Vientiane Furniture Fair 2017, participants can also enjoy many activities such as wood carving demonstrations, a lucky draw and an entertainment performance in the evening.
