One of UK’s largest furniture and furnishings event, the January Furniture Show will take place next year from January 25 to 27, 2017. Over 450 companies that exhibited at the 2016 show, have already rebooked themselves for the 2017 edition.
Some of the established names to rebook include: Alstons Upholstery, Ashley Manor, Buoyant, Dar Lighting, Duresta, Ercol, Kettle, Lebus, Morris Furniture, Parker Knoll, Nolte Mobel, Rauch, Sherborne Upholstery and TCS, to name but a few.
Laraine Janes, January Furniture Show director, said: “We’re delighted at such a high number of rebookings, newcomers and new enquiries – and it’s only March. We are already looking forward to what is set to be a great 2017 event.”
With additional space being added to meet demand, Hall 5 will strengthen its position as the biggest hall in the show with Buoyant, Lebus, Furminac, Ultra, Cintique, Furnico and Sherborne leading the charge to making it the must visit hall for serious upholstery buyers.
Organisers reported a wealth of new enquires from some renowned international brands – more to be announced shortly – but already ALF, Aleal, AFOS Sofas, Entune Living and Batistella have applied to join Hall 2’s international, contemporary line up.
British Furniture Manufacturers (BFM) members are also firmly behind the 2017 show. Jackie Bazeley said, “BFM is pleased to confirm that all major companies have rebooked for next year thanks to success at the 2016 event. This year’s show proved successful for us, and for members who exhibited, so it was a very easy decision for us to support the event next year. Being the biggest UK furniture event, it’s extremely important that that the BFM is represented at JFS. It provides a platform for our members to launch new products and promote British furniture.”
