IT was smaller in size, and with a much fewer number of exhibitors, but the first Maison&Objet Asia sure packed a punch.

The Asian show, which ran from March 10 to 13 at Marina Bay Sands, had some 272 exhibitors spread over three halls or 6,000 sq m of space. It is modelled after the highly successful Masion&Objet Paris, which takes place every January and September.

In comparison, the Parisian show drew more than 6,000 exhibitors spread over nine massive halls or 250,000 sq m space at Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord Villepinte, which is much like our Singapore Expo. Its sheer size makes Maison&Objet Paris the leading design and decor event worldwide. The Parisian show will mark its 20th anniversary next year.
