ANIEME is the Spanish National Association of Furniture Manufacturers and Exporters, established in 1977 and entirely devoted to internationalisation-related services. It is a non-profit organisation which develops its annual Promotion Plan for its associated companies spread all over the country. Its Annual Promotion Plan usually includes direct trade missions, visiting trade missions, grouped trade fairs, customised studies and B2B event organisation to promote market knowledge and the introduction in it of the products manufactured by its members. Because of its knowledge on the field, the Association has gradually been diversifying its area of collaboration and it also provides services to third parties as a consequence of its know-how, experience in different markets as well as domain expertise.
ANIEME carries out projects either independently or in coordination with ICEX, and the different Autonomous Communities where the Habitat Sector is relevant.
