MFS sees visitor interest soar
With more than 10 days to go before the start of the Manchester Furniture Show, visitor pre-registrations have increased by more than a fifth, including retailers who have never attended the show.
Registrations are up 24% for the 15-17 July exhibition.
Just some of the recent names to register are: Lee Longlands, Midfurn, Rodger’s of York, Smith’s the Rink, West Lancs Furniture, Bramptons Home Furnishers, Sofas & Beyond, Russell Francis Interiors, ScS, Franks for Furniture, Homestyle Furnishings, Hopewell’s, John Doe of Diss, Lukehursts, Millhouse Furniture, BrandAlley, Rooms of Keighley, Keens (Belfast) and Beadle Crome Interiors, according to organisers.
‘We are delighted to see such a substantial increase in the pre-registration numbers. It is also very pleasing to see such a long list of buyers from high calibre stores throughout the whole of the British Isles. The addition of MidPoint at Manchester this year adds extra gravitas to the show, and gives buyers multiple options to select ranges from volume to high-end. We are expecting a show full of interest and energy,’ said Theresa Raymond, show director.
