Called furniPRO Asia, the show will take place on 17-19 October 2012 in Singapore Expo, Hall 2, featuring country pavilions from Germany, Italy, Singapore, Taiwan and the US.

International panel machinery manufacturers such as Biesse, IMA, Imal-Pal, Sandvik, Schelling, Siempelkamp, Wemh├Âner and GET srl (representing Globus, EMG, Imeas and Trasmec) have booked space as exhibitors for this first event.

The show is organised by K├Âlnmesse, which also organises the Interzum exhibitions, and it is planned to make it a biennial event.

A previous biennial Singapore show was WoodmacAsia, last held in 2003. Liked by the panel machinery companies, it was killed off by removal of the support of Eumabois.
