In a first in the UAE, Furniture 360 will be a ‘business to business to consumer’ concept where the exhibitors will not only meet the buyers from UAE and GCC countries but also cater to general customers, especially during the weekend. At a time when customer experience is seen as a bigger factor than price in influencing buying decisions, this concept will work for both the exhibitors and buyers.
