January Furniture Show gears up for 2024

The January Furniture Show (JFS) returns to the NEC Birmingham from 21st-24th January, delivering an even grander offering of top brands, the latest products, and new features.

As a market leader, JFS offers a unique chance to stay ahead of the competition and source the latest launches from over 400 brands across four sectors: Premium Design; Interior Accessories and Furniture; Living, Dining, and Bedroom; along with Furniture Upholstery and Beds, all under one roof.

In 2024, the visitor experience is set to be taken to new heights with the introduction of the Champagne Bar in Hall 1, which promises to be a welcoming setting for client meetings and networking. Additionally, the new Festival Food Court will provide a relaxing space for visitors and exhibitors to take a break and enjoy global cuisine.

The show will also foster an environment of connections and networking with a full social calendar. Visitors and exhibitors can celebrate the end of opening day on the Sunday evening at the Show Party, where the winners of The Furniture Awards will be announced with show partner Furniture News.

On Monday evening, the Women in Furniture Network will host the Speedy Networking event, uniting women across the industry in "a supportive and empowering atmosphere" – with last-minute deals available during Tuesday’s Happy Hour, before the show closes on the Wednesday.

Hall 2 will be transformed into an aspirational marketplace, as the Home & Lifestyle Show co-locates with JFS. Retailers and designers will be able to discover thousands of hand-picked interior accessories, lighting, furniture pieces, homewares, and lifestyle products, curated to deliver "an on-trend collection of must-haves", and featuring brands including Asiatic Carpets, Blue Bone Imports, Crystal World, Febland Group, Final Touches Trading, Gallery Direct, Kelston House International, Malini, Premier Housewares, Scatter Box, SHH Interiors, and more.

JFS will continue to embrace international flair through its new International Pavilion, featuring brands from Poland, China, Turkey, Portugal, Romania and Vietnam. Visitors will be able to explore offerings from international brands such as 3C Candy Polstermöbel, ALF UNO, Furninova, Idzczak Meble, Incanto Italia and Digio’ Leather by Sofitalia, Kristensen & Kristensen, Mlily, New Trend Concepts, and many others.

An immersive addition for 2024 is the Crafting the Future Networking Hub, offering a vibrant space for business meetings and showcasing the work of the Young Furniture Makers. Visitors will also be able to participate in workshops and watch creations come to life at the experiential stations, with industry leaders such as The Furniture Makers' Company, ACID, BIRA, and FIRA providing invaluable insights and enrichment.

The enhanced VIP programme for 2024 grants hand-picked VIPs exclusive access to the VIP Lounge, where they can relax and enjoy complimentary refreshments and lunch, private parking, entrance, cloakroom, and early show access.

"In essence, JFS is an unmissable opportunity for the entire furniture industry," concludes organiser Clarion. "Secure your complimentary badge by clicking here to register now, and discover more about the show here."
