A new furniture and homewares trade event is taking place at the National Show Centre, Dublin – close to Dublin Airport – in August.

The 24 exhibitors confirmed for the Irish Furniture & Homewares Show include Gannon's Furniture, Image Furnishings, Gleneagle Furniture, Sofa Source, World Furniture (NI), Heartlands, Annaghmore and Bluebone.

According to organiser Mark Gannon: "This event gives Irish and UK businesses in the furniture trade the opportunity to do business in a relaxed environment, and provides attendees a welcome environment to see new products, innovative ideas and avail of exclusive deals and discounts from the businesses on show."

The creation of the event followed the cancellation of Dublin's existing furniture fair, due to take place in October.
