Attendees will have the opportunity to explore a diverse range of exquisite items, from furniture and home décor to lighting, and featuring a mix of timeless classics and modern designs that showcase the incredible creativity and innovation inherent in Filipino craftsmanship. Visitors can immerse themselves in the Philippines' rich cultural heritage, experiencing not only modern designs but also traditional craftsmanship and techniques displayed at these events. 

Vice President Sara Duterte, Vice President of the Republic of the Philippines, emphasized, “The Philippines has a rich heritage in craftsmanship, where furniture-making is not just a job but an essential part of our culture, passed down through generations. This industry shapes our identity and significantly contributes to our GDP, thanks to thousands of skilled artisans who inject their unique style and expertise into every fine piece.”

A major highlight of the expo is the involvement of Filipino weavers, including the Iraya Mangyans of Puerto Galera and the Bangsamoro tribes. These skilled artisans will captivate visitors with live demonstrations, creating one-of-a-kind products that seamlessly blend beauty with functionality. Each product becomes a living narrative interwoven with the rich tapestry of tradition and modernity, allowing visitors to witness the artistry firsthand and gain a deeper understanding of the cultural significance embedded in each creation. 

Concurrently, the event will feature the Obra Design Masterclass Program by The Philippine Trade Training Center - Global MSME Academy (PTTC-GMEA), under the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). This initiative aims to provide specialized furniture training and mentorship opportunities for young designers and scholars, empowering and uplifting local talent within the furniture and creative industries.

The Philippine International Furniture Show and Interior & Design Manila together offer a unique and immersive experience, inviting visitors to delve into the profound depth and diversity of Filipino design. This expo stands as testaments to the country's growing influence in the world of design and craftsmanship, showcasing the rich heritage of Filipino design and emphasizing the industry's commitment to innovation, sustainability, and global collaboration.
