Indonesia is set to host a three-day International Muslim Lifestyle trade fair focused on Islamic products and services from August 26 to August 28.

The Indonesia International Muslim Lifestyle Trade Expo, holding at Indonesia Convention Exhibition, Tangerang, aims to connect the world with the Indonesian Islamic Community.

Wini Adam, spokesperson for Lima Events, organisers of the show, said in a statement that the expo is a business matching and business-to-business exhibition.

She said it would attract tens of thousands offline visitors and millions of online viewers from various countries.

She said the expo would cover eight main sectors, namely; Halal Food and Beverages; Halal Cosmetics, Pharmaceuticals and Herbal; Halal Travel and Destinations.

Others are: Islamic Finance and Banking; Halal Media and Recreation; Modest Fashion; Islamic Education, Books and Publishing; Sharia Property and Infrastructure.

Indonesia has a large muslim population of 229 million (about 87.2 per cent of the total population of 255 million), the most populous Muslim-majority country in the world.

Estimates by the State of the Global Islamic Economy (SGIE) Report 2022 indicate that the world’s 1.9 billion muslims spent the equivalent of 2 trillion U.S. dollars in 2021.

The amount was spent across the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, fashion, travel, and media/recreation sectors impacted by Islamic faith-inspired ethical consumption needs.

According to Ms Adam, the three-day expo will feature workshops, product presentations, business meetings as well as site visits to plantations, centres of Islamic economic development and halal industry sectors in Indonesia.
