The National Bed Federation (NBF) has announced the categories for this year’s annual industry awards, the winners of which will be revealed during the Bed Show at Telford International Centre (21st-22nd September).

Now in their 12th year, the awards have grown in prestige within the bed industry.

NBF marketing and membership manager Simon Williams says: “After a year like no other, it is more important than ever that we continue to honour the brightest and best enterprises in the bed market as new developments in product innovation and sustainability continue.”

The Manufacturer/Supplier Award categories (open to NBF members only) are: Bed Product of the Year; Component Product of the Year; and the Sustainability Award.

The Retailer Awards (only retailers stocking at least 50% of product sourced from NBF members are eligible) are: NBF Retail Champion of the Year (independent bed retailer with fewer than 15 stores); National Bed Retailer of the Year (15 stores or more); and Online Bed Retailer of the Year (at least 80% of sales via the internet).

The deadline for entries is 5pm on Friday 10th September for the Bed Product of the Year and Component Product of the Year categories. For the Sustainability Award and all retailer awards, the deadline is 5pm on Friday 23rd July.
