The Northpoint 2016 show organisers and exhibitors are looking forward to welcoming friends old and new to the 38th annual event organised by the Scottish Furniture Representatives Association (SFRA).

The doors of Edinburgh’s Highland Hall will be open from 9.30am to 6.00pm from Sunday 31st January to Tuesday 2nd February. The 2015 edition attracted 219 buyers and, in recent years, many of the SFRA members have taken on larger sales territories incorporating parts of England and Ireland, so the event now welcomes many retailers from these areas.

Donna Speirs, buying and marketing director of Archers Sleepcentre, comments: "Starting off with one branch in 2001, and now with 10 branches and a growing online business, the Edinburgh exhibition is an integral part of our plans for every new year. It is also an opportunity for our branch managers to view new products being launched by our suppliers."

After a hectic exhibition season in January, many buyers and exhibitors look forward to relaxing and being entertained at the annual SFRA Presidents Dinner on the Monday night at the Edinburgh Marriott. After the sell-out success of last year's SFRA 50th anniversary dinner, the organisation is promising another strong evening of entertainment, featuring Britain's Got Talent finalist Les Gibson, and Woody the Magician, one of the most highly-rated magicians and entertainers in Scotland.
