Traditionally, the new year brings fresh optimism. It’s all a matter of perspective, and in this month’s issue, we’ve plenty of angles to help guide you down the right path!

The first part of our annual retailer review sees the nation’s top independents reflect on their experiences, and share a few thoughts on what 2021 might bring. Next, top suppliers offer their take on the future in Empowering Business, a special feature which reveals just how much our industry has endured and evolved.

With trade shows showing signs of life, we explore the art of exhibition stand design – before celebrating the winners and finalists of the latest NBF Bed Industry Awards, and delivering a primer on the associations and buying groups that bind our industry together.

Finally, why won’t anyone visit your virtual exhibition stand? How can you deliver in-store service that customers just can’t ignore? How can you cut shipping costs, or engage customers in their own homes? You’ll find the answers in our Opinion section this month.

Discover all this – plus interviews with Swyft’s Keiran Hewkin, BoConcept’s Zoe Shields and sales agent Mark Kreamer – in another packed issue of Furniture News.
