This year's January Furniture Show is shaping up to be bigger and better thanks to a host of existing exhibitors taking larger stands.

Confidence in the event has seen big brand names such as Nolte Mobel, Weimann, Rauch, Forte, Lebus, Sweet Dreams, Breasley Consumer Products, World Furniture, Time Living, Steens, VIDA Living and Danalight increasing space by up to 200%.

"While the show is bigger for 2016, around 25%, it has been carefully managed to keep it concise and compact with a proper visitor flow around the halls," says Laraine Janes, co-director of the January Furniture Show.

"We have seen many new quality names joining us but our significant growth has come from existing exhibitors requesting more stand space to accommodate their products and designs.

"Our aim from the beginning has always been to keep the show focused and relevant so even though the 2016 will be bigger we are controlling the growth so that it's to the benefit of both visitors and exhibitors."

The four day industry showcase, to be held from January 24-27th, will bring together 450 leading companies, representing every section of the furniture and furnishings industry, at the NEC, Birmingham.

Online registration for the January Furniture Show has already opened and visitors can see the list of exhibitors for 2016 and secure their free badge by visiting the January Furniture Show website.
