The number of pre-registered visitors for the 2019 January Furniture Show is at a record level, report's the show's organiser, Clarion Events, which says the number is up +50% on the equivalent time last year.
Show director Cleere Scamell comments: “Seeing the escalation in the number of pre-registered visitors is terrific news. It proves that the word is truly out about what a great show for the industry the January Furniture Show is. Having so many buyers eager to see what is new already confirms that we have got the right exhibitors who present the right products to enthusiastic buyers, and in a formula that works for everybody.”
Accessory buyers are promised more choice in 2019 as the amount of space in Hall 3 dedicated to interior furnishings will be increased by +20%. Meanwhile, some returning exhibitors including Gallery Direct have increased the size of their stands, and new exhibitors include Hill Interiors, McGowan Rutherford and Collier & Dobson.
“Feedback from our exhibitors and buyers is invaluable to us," adds Cleere. "There were clear messages at the end of the 2018 show – more beds, a really good lighting offering and more space for interior furnishings. We listened to that and want to make the show what the industry wants it to be. We firmly believe that the 2019 event will be the best yet and will deliver excellent results for our hard-working exhibitors and keen buyers.”
