Minerva's members-only Furniture & Bed Show, which took place at Stoneleigh Park last month, has been declared "a great success" by the buying group.

Roy Beagent, group business manager, comments: “We were delighted with how many members came to the show and gala dinner, and the great range of suppliers who exhibited. It made it an extremely successful, and enjoyable, event.”

The show featured 50 supplier exhibitors – including 13 new names – plus 11 guest exhibitors.

The winner of the show's Best Stand Award was Derry’s, and the trophy was presented by Charles Charlton, one of Minerva's directors.
