In an extension to the dates initially published, and due to popular demand, the next edition of INDX Furniture is set to take place on 23rd-25th January 2022 at Cranmore Park exhibition centre in Solihull. Running for three days instead of two, the new dates will include a Sunday opening, and the show will be open to the general trade for its duration … 

Formerly known as The AIS Furniture Show, the industry buying event successfully launched under the INDX Home banner in September last year, as a two-day event which also represented the buying group’s first live event in over 18 months. 

Delivered by Associated Independent Stores (AIS) – the winner of the Best Buying Group/Association category in Furniture News’ Readers’ Choice Awards 2021 – INDX represents a group of unique trade shows which are renowned for delivering an inimitable buyer- and business-focused format, and are specifically dedicated to meeting the diverse and ever-changing requirements of today’s retailers.

Emma Rackley, director of furniture & home at AIS, is looking forward to bringing the industry an exciting and inclusive show: “The September 2021 show beat our expectation, and we have received fantastic industry response to our decision to extend our run and offer a Sunday opening when we return in January 2022. 

“Our team of expert selectors have been very busy, and I am delighted to confirm that we have secured an unrivalled selection of leading names to exhibit, and we look forward to welcoming everyone to what promises to be an exciting showcase. We would also like to take this opportunity to reassure our community that the comfort and wellbeing of all our visitors, exhibitors and employees remains our priority, and we will continue to work closely with the Cranmore Park team to ensure that we deliver a safe and successful show.”

Curated by experts with a wealth of experience in the furniture retail sector, the exhibitor line-up for the next edition of INDX Furniture is set to comprise an unrivalled collection of market-leading upholstery, cabinet and garden furniture brands, in addition to key service providers.

Confirmed suppliers include Venjakob, Actona, Papaya, TCH, Jual, Unique, Hill & Hunter, Andrena and HND on the cabinet side, and they will be joined by Garden supplier Firmans, plus leading upholstery suppliers 3C Candy, himolla, HTL, Corium, Alstons and Primavera.

INDX Furniture offers free entry, on-site parking and refreshments to all visitors, who can expect a friendly, relaxed and professional environment in which to network and connect with the furniture industry. Visitors can register via the INDX website, which also boasts an exhibitor list and further show information including an up-to-date Covid-19 policy.
