How it works
As a buyer-centric program, the organizers of CIFF will schedule real-time, face-to-face video conferences for buyers with exhibitors on a one-to-one basis to provide for private in-depth discussions.
Suitable exporters are lined up to meet with the buyers one after another.

Extensive work is undertaken pre-meeting to identify the requirements of participating buyers such as the product categories, design styles, preferred price points, etc. They are then supplied catalogues of exporters that meet the requests for selection. Only companies shortlisted by buyers are scheduled for the online meetings.
