Long Point’s spring show in bloom

The Long Point show is back in Long Eaton from 13-15th May, with its biggest (spring) exhibitor roster for many years, says Andrew Mitchell, chairman of show organiser, the Long Eaton Guild of Furniture Manufacturers …

In 2014, Long Eaton was recognised as the UK Centre of Quality Upholstery Manufacture. It is fitting, then, that each May and September, the Long Point show brings together the newest product from the manufacturers based in and around the town, plus guest exhibitors and those with permanent showrooms there.

Indeed, recent years have seen more and more furniture brands take up permanent homes in Long Eaton, the town’s rustic industrial aesthetic complementing a wide range of styles and looks.

This year, 29 businesses will share their latest models at the show, says Andrew, including seven newcomers (the majority of which now occupy permanent showrooms in the town) – Andrew Paul Furniture, Fortune Woods UK, Hartmann Mobel, Ramaro Upholstery, The Hastings Sofa Company, Hjort Knudsen, and Michael Tyler Furniture.

Although a car helps when travelling between showrooms, all the exhibition’s locations are situated within a mile of the town centre and railway station – for assistance, visitors arriving by train can contact the show’s helpline in advance, on 0115 973 4481.

Long Point enjoys the reputation of being the most enjoyable and relaxed furniture exhibition within the UK, and is the ideal vehicle for manufacturers and retailers alike to work together,” adds Andrew.
