October 2014 saw the inaugural launch of the Autumn Furniture Show at the International Centre, Telford. Traditionally a private event hosted by Minerva for its members, the buying group has decided to extend the opening of the show to the trade in general across both days, although there will be opportunities for exhibitors to set up exclusive member-only displays if required.

Significant interest in stands has already been expressed by key industry manufacturers, with reservations being made. The show will take place across two open-plan halls at the International Centre in Telford, which offers quality facilities, a car park with some 1300 spaces, and hotels on site.

The show is timed to give retailers a chance to make key purchases ahead of the Christmas period and January sales. As with last year’s edition, the show will feature an eclectic mix of product designed to appeal to a wide retail audience.
