UMIDS-2016: facts and figures

International exhibition of furniture, materials, components and equipment for furniture production and woodworking UMIDS took place in Krasnodar on March 30 - April 2.

350 companies from 7 countries (Russia, Austria, Belarus, Germany, Italy, Kazakhstan and the Czech Republic) exhibited on a space covering around 30,000 sqm. Over four days, the exhibitions were attended by around 11,000 visitors.

UMIDS brought together three sectors: Woodworking, Furniture, and Components. The Woodworking sector presented industry professionals with new products and a wide choice of equipment and tools for furniture production and woodworking.

At the Furniture sector, visitors could discover new soft furniture and cabinet furniture, furniture for homes, offices, and hotels, and could learn about the key trends in kitchen design.

The Components sector presented industry professionals with new fittings for furniture, boards, panels, tabletops, front panels, and materials for furniture production.

UMIDS was attended by Sergey Altukhov, the Vice-Governor of the Krasnodar Region. Mr Altukhov met representatives of German, Italian, and Czech production equipment to consider the opportunity of localising the production of woodworking equipment in the Krasnodar Region.“Each year, the international UMIDS exhibition attracts more and more exhibitors and this edition is featuring a record number. This is no coincidence: the Krasnodar Region has always been one of the centres for the furniture industry, and is a developed and very promising region. This trend, of course, continues today. I am confident that foreign companies will get opportunities at the exhibition for localising production, and our regular exhibitors will find new clients, partners, and most importantly, new points of growth for their businesses and the region’s economy,” commented Sergey Altukhov in his welcome speech at the opening ceremony.
