Sponsorship bolsters new component expo

The British Furniture Manufacturers (BFM's) new Furniture Component Expo has announced a second headline sponsor.

BeA UK (Fastening Systems) has pledged its support, joining the Vita Group as the two leading names behind the show, which will take place at Telford International Centre on 24-25th April, 2024.

The BFM launched the Furniture Component Expo after feedback from members identified a gap in the market, with furnituremakers highlighting a need to browse the marketplace and seek out new innovations coming into the sector in a face-to-face setting.

Paul Shepherd of BeA Group UK says: “Our products and approach are continuing to win customer favour as we increase our presence and market share in the furniture production sector, with service and innovation a key driver.

“Already successful in other markets, we see the very first BFM’s Furniture Component Expo in the UK as the ideal opportunity to introduce automation and automation ideas as a way forward in future-proofing production lines within the furniture industry.”

Phil Spademan, BFM’s MD, adds: “It’s great news that BeA UK are on board as a headline sponsor, along with Vita Group. We are seeing an exciting level of take-up from companies who are keen to be involved with the expo – not only sponsors, but exhibitors too. We’ve been told that there is a real gap in the market for this type of B2B event, and we are pleased to see it being so well received across the industry.”
