What does Feria Hábitat València have to offer businesses? Definitely the possibility of seeing the vast majority of your usual suppliers and expanding your portfolio with the latest new products and collections from today’s on-trend international manufacturers. Also, many of these leading furniture retail and distribution groups that will be attending as visitors will also be taking advantage of the opportunity the fair affords for them to bring their members together and hold corporate and internal meetings and conventions at Feria Valencia.

The pandemic and the months of lockdown people lived through prompted a ‘rebound effect’ in the industry, with high demand for items with which to refresh the home.

It is worth highlighting in this regard that sales of home furniture rose 19.4% in Spain over the last year to a value of 1,630 million euros, according to Trade Observatory DBK Informa. Plus, this year activity and business centred on home renovations is growing 6 percentage points ahead of last year, according to market report Houzz 2022.
