The National Bed Federation’s (NBF) annual Bed Show has been shortlisted in the Exhibition of the Year category for the Trade Association Best Practice Awards 2017.
Now in its eighth year, The Bed Show will take place from 19-20th September this year at the Telford International Centre. Offering a unique mix of both British bed manufacturers and component suppliers, the show remains the place to be for buyers and commercial specifiers who are looking for the latest products and developments in the UK bed market.
The NBF Bed Show team will compete against other trade associations at the annual Trade Association Awards which recognises and promotes best practices among associations in all sectors across the UK. The ceremony is now in its 15th year and is supported by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
Commenting on the shortlist, Lisa Artis of the NBF Bed Show says: “We are absolutely delighted to be nominated for Exhibition of the Year at the Trade Association Best Practice Awards.
“The Bed Show has grown year on year since first being launched in 2010, and last year saw the highest visitor numbers to date. Feedback from our members who exhibit at the show is always extremely positive. Over the years it has seen very little change thanks to the formula-winning format – a three halls, focused, no frills event. Plus, it continues to be a NBF member only show which means visitors can be confident that all the companies they see are reputable businesses, complying with the NBF’s Code of Practice.
“This year’s Bed Show will be no exception and we expect to see more than 80 brands exhibiting and the long-awaited Gala Dinner which is set to be another huge success!
“We’re looking forward to the Trade Association Best Practice Awards ceremony and hope to scoop the award on the day!”
Jocelyn Shein, events and sponsorship manager at the Trade Association Forum Ltd, says: “The standard of entries this year has once again been very high and we appreciate the hard work which the NBF and the Bed Show team put into the submission. It has certainly been inspiring to read about the project and we wish them the best of luck for the awards!”
Winners of the Trade Association Best Practice Awards 2017 will be announced on Wednesday 12th July at Drapers Hall in London.
