Furniture Trade Shows in Vietnam
There are various local supplier directories in Vietnam. That said, Alibaba.com is still the number one directory for Vietnamese suppliers, even though Alibaba is based in China.
For Rattan furniture alone, there are 286 listed factories based in Vietnam, listed on Alibaba.com. You can also find Vietnamese furniture and homewares factories listed on Globalsources.com, a Hong Kong-based supplier directory.
That being said, there is a better way to find Vietnamese manufacturers. There are several furniture and home products trade shows in Vietnam, including the Vietnam International Furniture & Home Accessories Expo (VIFA Exp) and VietnamWood.
Both trade shows are held yearly in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), at the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC).
Further, most nationalities don’t need to apply for visas before arriving in Vietnam, which makes the country very accessible.
VIFA Expo (Vietnam)
Vietnam International Furniture & Home Accessories Expo, also known as VIFA Expo, will take place in March in Ho Chi Minh City.
It is not as large as some other furniture exhibitions in Mainland China and Hong Kong, but it attracts around 10,000 visitors and more than 300 exhibitors, mostly from Vietnam. In total, exhibitors from 14 countries are expected to attend the fair.
Vietnam also offers visa-free entry to almost all European countries, including the UK, but you need a visa if you’re traveling from North America or Australia. In total, Vietnam offers visa-free entry to the citizens of 24 countries.
You can also explore a lot of furniture categories at this event that includes:

Can I buy from furniture wholesalers?
There are many furniture wholesalers, that can sell ‘ready-made’ products directly from the warehouse. However, many furniture wholesalers sell products made for the domestic market in Vietnam.
Such products may not comply with fire safety regulations, which prohibit you from importing them.
Further, many wholesalers are not familiar with exporting furniture overseas, which can make the process slow and complicated.
For most importers, it makes more sense to go directly to export-oriented factories, rather than local wholesalers or stores.
Are Vietnamese suppliers cheaper than those in other countries?
Vietnam is a low-cost country, but so are practically all countries in the region.
However, compared to their competitors in Thailand and China, Vietnamese furniture suppliers tend to be cheaper.
That said, don’t expect to cut 50% compared to what you’d pay in other countries. At best, a Vietnamese supplier can quote a price that’s 10 to 15% lower than those in China or Thailand.
