Recognised as the UK’s biggest bed exhibition, the successful National Bed Federation (NBF) Bed Show is back for a fourth year, from 24-25th September.

The format of this year’s Bed Show will remain largely the same – two days at the Telford International Centre – but with extended opening hours for visitors on both the Tuesday (8.30am-6pm) and Wednesday (8.30am-4pm).

“We have over 70 brands exhibiting – among them some of the biggest names in the bed industry – so we are looking forward to another great year for the Bed Show,” says Jessica Alexander, executive director of the NBF.

Once again, only members of the NBF have been invited to exhibit at the event, which will continue to present a unique mix of both bed manufacturers – all with British manufacturing bases – and component suppliers.

For the third year running there will be best in class awards, with five categories on offer – Bed Manufacturer of the Year (won by Vi-Spring in 2012), Bed Components Supplier of the Year (CPS Labels), Multiple Bed Retailer of the Year (Bensons for Beds), Independent Bed Retailer of the Year (Cheshire-based Land of Beds) and Bed E-Tailer of the Year (Feather & Black).

The NBF Bed Show Gala Dinner and awards night will once again be held on the Tuesday evening of the show, again hosted by broadcaster Gyles Brandreth. A drinks reception, dinner, awards ceremony and dancing will be included. Tickets are £80 each and the Gala Dinner booking form can be downloaded from the Bed Show website.
