JFS confirms plan for fifth hall
The January Furniture Show will have a fifth hall, organisers have confirmed, after the event sold out halls 1, 2, 3 and 3A at the NEC.
As Interiors Monthly reported in March, organiser Furniture Fairs will expand the 13-15 January show in to the Pavilion hall at the NEC to accommodate manufacturers and suppliers on the show's waiting list. Halls 4 and 5 of the NEC are unavailable.
The show is to be officially opened by Stephen McPartland MP, chairman of the Furniture Industry All Party Parliamentary Group.
Meanwhile sister event, the Manchester Furniture Show is to opt for a three day schedule next year, running from Sunday to Tuesday.
The intention is to concentrate visitor footfall across the three days rather than the current four, which normally has low visitor numbers on the final day.
