James Hudson, Gallery Direct business development director at said the company had its best Manchester show.
‘We saw 95% of the buyers we wanted to see and got off to a great start with a fantastic Sunday. Our new Cargo and Sunny models went down incredibly well with better than expected sales and we will definitely be back next year,’ said Michael Tattersall, Nolte sales director.
‘We love the Manchester Furniture Show, it is a firm fixture in our calendar and it gets better every year. We will be back next year,’ said Paul Wesson, Whitemeadow sales director.
