After an extended drought, physical trade shows are finally returning – and The Summer Furniture Show, taking place at Telford International Centre on 15-16th June, promises to be the perfect opportunity to rediscover the joys of meeting and working face to face …

Delivered by the team behind The Autumn Furniture Show, The Summer Furniture Show will bring the trade back together for two days of buying opportunities.

The event will present over 50 exhibitors from across every home category, including Ancient Mariner, Alstons, Ashwood Designs, Baker, Bluebone, Celebrity, Gala Collezione, G Plan, Harrison Spinks, Himolla, Hjort Knudsen, HTL, Hypnos, Italia Living, Julian Bowen, Kettle Interiors, La-Z-Boy, Lebus, Parker Knoll, Primavera, Rauch, Relyon, Sofa Factory, Sealy, Sherborne, Vale, Violino, Welcome Furniture and Wiemann, plus Emma Sleep’s UK independent launch, and businesses offering rugs, pictures, mirrors, accessories, outdoor furniture and services.

Telford International Centre is located just 20 minutes from the M6, and offers over 1500 free on-site parking spaces – while Telford Central station is just a short distance away, and Birmingham Airport offers a direct train service to Telford or can be easily reached by road.

Upon arrival, visitors can relax with a barista-made coffee and a complimentary lunch. For those wishing to stay overnight, there are over 400 hotel rooms within a minute’s walk, and 1000 within a 10-minute drive.

The show’s organiser stresses that a lot of work has taken place behind the scenes to make the event Covid-safe in a way that will not interfere with visitors’ ability to do business – those attending will find spacious halls with wide aisles and good ventilation, plus hand sanitiser on every stand.
