eBay has joined The Online Furniture Show as the headline sponsor for its upcoming spring event (running from 26-30th April). 

The marketplace is keen to reach furniture retailers and manufacturers using the show’s platform, and to showcase the advantages of selling through eBay.

Mike Ogle, head of marketing & design for The Online Furniture Show, comments: “We’re really excited to have eBay come on board with us in time for our spring show. Working with them on creating a furniture-focused display has been eye-opening, thanks to the incredible statistics of furniture sales they have on their UK site.

"A sofa sells every 62 seconds on eBay, with furniture being searched for 1.6 million times per day. This shows there is a massive market waiting for retailers and manufacturers to take the leap onto their platform.

"We hope our visitors will learn more about selling through eBay when they visit the show this spring, and I’m sure the friendly team at eBay will be available to assist through live chat for anyone wanting to learn more.”

Visitors to the show will be able to find more information on the eBay show ‘stand’, which will go live along with the rest of the show at 9am this Monday.

Furntiure News magazine will also be present for the duration of the event.
