MAISON&OBJET ASIA chose Singapore, a strategic hub for the Asean region, to provide uncommon visibility for companies wishing to access the exclusive territories of New Luxury. The city-state itself is the gateway to the future of the upscale art of living. It is an exceptional showcase and a growth driver for companies wishing to benefit from the tremendous opportunities offered by the ebullience of Asian economies.
