Lebus Upholstery and Westbridge Furniture are among the latest to confirm attendance at this year’s Manchester Furniture Show, which will take place between 13-16th July at Manchester Central.

For Lebus, it marks a return to the main exhibition event, with a 260 sqm stand in the main hall. MD Karl Walker comments: “We are delighted to be exhibiting in Central Hall after years of hotel exhibitions. Manchester is a very important part of our exhibition programme and we firmly believe that our new stand location best suits the needs of our customers and offers the perfect environment to exhibit our latest collections.”

For Westbridge Furniture, this will be its first ever appearance at Manchester. “We have an exciting launch to make this summer, and Manchester offered us exactly the right timing and platform to do so,” says Westbridge MD, Paul Islip.

According to the show’s organiser, this year’s edition is set to boast its most prestigious brand line-up to date, with the Central Hall heading for an early sell out. Furniture Fairs co-director Theresa Raymond says: “We’re delighted to welcome Lebus back into the fold, and to have secured Westbridge for the first time. With Corndell, Baker Furniture, Buoyant, Furmanac, Furniture Origins, Morris Group, Greenapple, Kingstown, Wood Bros and La-z-Boy also set to attend, we believe the show will be a must-see event for retailers across the country.

“The exhibition provides an opportunity to do business and spend time with customers in an iconic city centre location. The event is known for its relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and the timing is also perfect for autumn deliveries.”
