Future of January Furniture Show cemented

The organiser of the January Furniture Show has signed a new long-term deal with the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) venue, a seven-year commitment which underlines its  confidence in the future of the show and cements its position as the UK's principal furniture and furnishings trade event.

Laraine Janes, co-director, says: "After a turbulent few years, the industry is firmly back on track, and signing the long-term deal shows everyone the unrivalled commitment we have to producing the best trade furniture show in the UK.

"There's been a trade furniture exhibition in January at the NEC for the past 26 years, and it continues to be the right venue at the right time for exhibitors to meet retail customers from across the UK. Its transport links, countrywide connectivity, suitability and scale of the halls and the accessibility for exhibitors are why almost all the UK's important trade events take place there. And, adding another layer of nationwide connectivity will be the HS2 terminal opening at the NEC in 2023."

The January Furniture Show, which was launched in 2015, has continued to grow in size and popularity, noting a 55% increase in exhibitor numbers. Its current organiser works closely with the NEC to develop and improve the services and facilities. Last year saw changes to the NEC campus with the opening of Resorts World which mirrored the rebuilding of the January Furniture Show.

The show will take place from 22nd-25th January 2017 at the NEC.
