JFS sells out as it plans for Hall 5 return
The organiser of the January Furniture Show has confirmed that the 13-15 January event is now fully sold-out.
'Since we announced last January that a new format furniture show would be held at the NEC in January 2015, the industry has got behind us and supported us all the way. The message has been loud and clear: the industry wants an annual show, it wants it in January. And it wants it at the NEC,' says co-organiser Laraine Janes, pictured with fellow directors Theresa Raymond and Steve Richards.
The level of support and early close of exhibitor sales has prompted the organiser to book all five main halls - including Halls 4 and 5 - for the 2016 show which runs from Sunday 24 - Tuesday 26 January. A 'new, innovative floorplan, recognising historic positions of key exhibitors and creating a more balanced, buyer-friendly show' is being developed for 2016.
Exhibitors for 2015 include include Parker Knoll, Duresta, G Plan Upholstery, Westbridge, Baker Furniture, Lebus, Ercol, Furniture Origins, Sherborne, Alstons, Mark Webster, Ashley Manor, Collins & Hayes, Richard Stamp, Julian Bowen, Bentley Designs, Breasley, Vogue, La-Z-Boy, TCS, Corndell, Buoyant, Furmanac, Morris Furniture Group, Global Home, Rauch, PD Global, Gallery Direct, Celebrity, Wade Upholstery, GLPC International, Libra, Exclusive UK, Iain James, Seconique, Sweet Dreams, Wiemann, ROM, Willis & Gambier, David Gundry, Bentley Designs, Skovby, Serene Furnishings and Harrison Brothers.
