Fresh from launching a new range and marketing campaign, Kent-based bedmaker Sleepeezee scooped the best stand award at the Minerva Members Furniture & Bed Show, an exhibition for the buying group's members which took place at NAEC, Stoneleigh from 14-15th last month.

The award was presented by Minerva Furniture Group director Charles Charlton to Sleepeezee's sales and marketing director, Clive Parry.

"We're delighted to have won the best stand award at this year's Minerva Members Furniture & Bed Show," says Clive. "We proudly presented our new Perfectly British Collection and its striking new PoS. Our much-loved Pocketgel and Royal Backcare ranges were also on display at the show."

This year's Minerva Members Furniture & Bed Show saw good buyer footfall

Minerva's group business manager, Roy Beagent, reports that the show performed well despite taking place against a backdrop of difficult trading conditions, with "excellent" attendance levels from members.

Roy also remarks that bookings for the Minerva-organised Autumn Furniture Show, which is open to the wider trade and will take place at the same venue from 1st-2nd October, are "well ahead".
