September 14, 2019 - September 21, 2019
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Vietnam is currently the largest furniture production center in The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Wooden bedroom furniture products occupied the major part of the Vietnam’s furniture industry. Because of this, many factories that sell to United States source lumber products from the States. Additionally, the demand for furniture products within the domestic market is also rising

To take advantage of this market opportunity, the EDPNC in partnership with the Appalachian Regional Commission is coordinating a Lumber Trade Mission to Vietnam in September 2019. Participants will receive market research, have pre-arranged B2B meetings, several industry tours (furniture companies, flooring companies, etc.) as well as association introductions during the Mission. In conclusion of the week, companies that participate will attend the Vietnam Woos Expo where we have purchased booth space to highlight the companies in attendance as well as the region within the US. We are recruiting up to 10 companies for this initiative.

Who Should Attend: Any qualifying company located within the ARC Region is eligible to attend (the ARC Region is defined here).

Industry: Lumber, Machinery
