Be seen by top high street and online buyers who will be attending the show from Robert Dyas, Sofology, Bensons for Beds, B&B Furniture, Fabb Furniture, Housing Units Limited, Leekes Ltd, Megastore Retail Group, Stokers Ltd, Gerald Shotton Furnishings, The SpaceMaker Interiors LTD, Cookes, Toons and many more.

Industry leader Mike Aramayo, Managing Director at Buoyant Upholstery, is excited to see MFS return saying: ‘We wouldn’t miss Manchester Furniture Show as for us it’s a key event for the period where we meet with existing customers, take plenty of orders and meet new buyers.’ Reinforcing the show’s importance for businesses looking to reach new buyers, once again making MFS the place to expand and build on a loyal customer base. The MFS team understands the importance of trade shows as a means to meet busy buyers, which is why the Product Focus package was introduced. Having been successful at the January Furniture Show earlier this year, MFS will continue to make trade shows accessible for businesses of any size with Product Focus stands. These are a cost-effective plug & play concept that offers exhibitors all they need for a successful show, such as; carpet, AMP backwall/low side wall, graphic column with nameboard, lighting, electrical socket and the build and break down of your stand – all for only £100 per+VAT per square metre!

The MFS team are looking forward to getting back out on the road and bringing back this beloved show. Shona Carmichael, Sales Manager for the Manchester Furniture Show and the January Furniture Show, has worked on the show since 2002 and speaks highly of the shows relaunch saying: “I am thrilled that the Manchester Furniture Show is returning as it is the industry’s central hub for furniture professionals from across the UK and Ireland. MFS is a fantastic opportunity for brands to connect with buyers as the show is easily accessible making it a must-visit for Irish and Scottish buyers. The two-day format allows ample time for networking and exploring the latest trends with MFS being well known for its relaxed and friendly atmosphere, perfect for networking and building relationships. Buyers come for both days because they want to experience everything the show has to offer, and they know they’ll leave with new products secured and ready to arrive on their shopfloors by the end of November.”

Even though MFS is a trade show, not all the selling happens at the stands. The relaxed summer show is also a social affair where networking is just as important as selling. Exhibitors and visitors can mingle at the show’s new Summer Solstice Show Party and the Women in Furniture Network Brunch are both key opportunities to make new connections and finalise deals.

With registration already tracking +15% ahead, MFS will be the summer destination for the furniture industry. Contact the MFS team now to secure your place.
