AIS event promises "business as usual"

The INDX Furniture show (formerly the AIS Furniture Show) is set to reunite the industry when it returns to Cranmore Park from 1st-2nd September for its first live edition since January 2020.

Following the successful delivery of an online version of the show in March, which was supported by 70 suppliers, the INDX Furniture team is looking forward to resuming an in-person format, and reports that feedback from buyers – plus the number of brands eager to confirm their attendance – are both indicative of a community that is keen to get back to business as usual.

The upcoming show will also be the first to take place under the INDX show umbrella, with Furniture having recently joined the portfolio of Home category shows. Julian Cox, director of furniture and home at AIS, explains the decision to rebrand: “The INDX brand represents unique trade shows aimed at independent retailers, and is well established for the AIS Fashion trade shows, so we’re delighted to become part of the INDX family.”

With a focus on delivering the latest innovations alongside key and bestselling collections, INDX Furniture will provide a professional, business and buyer-focused platform for retailers to network with industry service providers and catch up with existing suppliers, as well as offering them the opportunity to discover new and future brand partners.

Curated specifically with the independent sector in mind, and brought together by selectors with a wealth of experience in furniture retail, the September exhibitor line-up is gathering momentum, and is set to showcase the latest collections from leading suppliers such as Venjakob, Corndell, ALF, Kettle, Himolla, Alstons, Duresta, Parker Knoll and HTL.

Although the Government recently eased mandatory Covid-19 restrictions, to ensure visitors, exhibitors and employees feel safe during the event, INDX Furniture will maintain a number of existing measures, which can be found in detail on the show website.

The exhibition will be open to AIS members on 1st September, with full trade access on 2nd September – buyers can register online here.
