Spring show delivers both product and content

This year’s Spring Furniture & Bed Show, which took place on 21st-22nd May, offered visiting buyers a wealth of sourcing opportunities ahead of this autumn/winter shopping season.

The biannual trade show, organised by buying group Minerva Furniture Group, takes place at the NAEC, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, each May and October, and has long proved popular with the buying group’s members and the wider trade.

Over 70 suppliers presented their latest product ranges at the event, covering upholstery, cabinet, beds and accessories, and trade service offerings.

Visitors also enjoyed free parking, free entrance and a complimentary lunch, while several of the exhibiting suppliers presented seminar sessions over the show’s duration, covering topics such as sleep theory (Sealy UK), outdoor/indoor trends (Bluebone and Papaya), and improving online performance (Abacus).

Bluebone again scooped the show’s Best Stand award for its display (pictured), having enjoyed an “excellent” show, notes agent Neil McMillan.

Adjust-A-Bed, which presented new PoS alongside its freshest line, comments: "We had a superb response from retailers, who loved all of our new products showcased."

Alstons, which won the show's Best British Supplier accolade, states: "It was our pleasure to welcome lots of our valued customers on to the stand. With your support, we’ve had a very successful show and an extremely strong start in launching our newly, refreshed Fairmont range."

Minerva's CEO Jim Orr adds: "Thanks to all our inspiring exhibitors, new and established, and valued visiting buyers for making this year's Spring Furniture & Bed show such a great event!"

The event’s autumn counterpart, the Autumn Furniture Show, will take place from 8-9th October – find out more here.
