The January Furniture Show is officially underway and has experienced a record breaking participation on the opening day, that is almost double the number of visitors participated in other editions. This year’s event is taking place at the Birmingham NEC until January 25. The show is welcoming over 350 brands from 18 countries. Over 15,000 visitors are attending over the four-day event, with senior buyers attending from companies including DFS, Furniture Village, Dunelm, John Lewis, Wayfair, Next, M&S, Sainsburys, Furniture Direct and Very Group.
Highlights of this year’s show include:
Speaking at the close of the first day, Dawn said: “It was an honour to open the show today. I’m hugely excited about founding London Rug Company and this has been a hugely successful day for us in terms of orders and interest from trade buyers and retailers. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the show brings, and to meet many more visitors over the coming days.”
Zoë Bonser, Portfolio Director, said: “We are delighted to be back at the NEC for our 2023 show and to see such impressive first day numbers is fantastic. We have a jam-packed schedule of activity over the next three days, and from this opening day it’s clear our buyers are here to make some serious purchasing decisions. We encourage anyone not already registered to come on down and be inspired for the year ahead.”
