Respected as a modern, peaceful and prosperous Islamic country especially among OIC member countries, Malaysia has the added advantage of championing the halal cause. Malaysia’s central position in Asia makes it an ideal trading platform to draw the world’s halal players in facilitating the sourcing and selling of global quality halal products through THE 6th INTERNATIONAL HALAL SHOWCASE (MIHAS).
This trade fair was pioneered in 2004 and congregates the largest annual gathering of halal industry players and entrepreneurs in the effort to ease the sourcing and selling of global quality halal consumables, products and services. It embraces the halal concept in all its dimensions from pharmaceuticals and herbal products, cosmetics and health care to Islamic investment, banking and takaful.
As an international trade fair focused on halal, MIHAS attracts a following of loyal visitors and exhibitors. MIHAS 2008 saw the active participation of 507 exhibitors from 25 countries and attracted a total of 41,862 visitors from 69 countries. Over 55% of these visitors are trade buyers and the who’s who in the food and beverage industry from the ASEAN countries.
Every year, MIHAS hosts over 500 buyers and matches them with participants of MIHAS from Malaysia. During MIHAS 2008, this programme resulted in immediate sales of over RM185.3 million with over RM2.02 billion under negotiation.
