Movelsul Brazil is the main furniture fair in Latin America in terms of exhibition area, number of exhibitors and professional visitors. Held by Sindmóveis Bento Gonçalves since 1977, it takes place every two years in the largest furniture manufacturing center in the country: an event with great business potential in the domestic market that attracts shopkeepers and major retail chains, corporate buyers, investors and architects, in addition to importers from the main target markets of the Brazilian furniture industry.
Prêmio Salão Design
Since 1988, Sindmóveis has organized the Salão Design Award – the largest furniture design award in Latin America. The competition was established in the largest furniture manufacturing center in the country as an innovation driver and competitiveness tool for the industry. More than 15 thousand stories have been told through the projects submitted in more than 30 years by students, professionals and manufacturing companies. In addition to being a showcase of trends and talents, the Salão Design Award plays a role in the shaping of the Brazilian and Latin American design identity.
Orchestra Brasil Project
The Orchestra Brasil Project, a partnership between Sindmóveis Bento Gonçalves and the Brazilian Export and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), was launched in 2006 to promote exports by suppliers to the furniture industry. The companies that take part in the Orchestra Brasil Project supply inputs, components, accessories, chemicals, machines, tools and software programs – all products required for the production of furniture by the main furniture manufacturers in the world, exporting to more than 90 countries.
The promotion of Brazilian design abroad is, above all, a sector-based strategy developed by Sindmóveis Bento Gonçalves to increase the perceived value of Brazilian furniture in foreign markets. The Raiz Project, carried out by Sindmóveis Bento Gonçalves with the support of the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil) since 2015, has structured and maintained new efforts targeting the international market, thus fostering exports of Brazilian designer service.
