JFS expands with Hall 5 move
The January Furniture Show is to become larger, occupying more of Hall 5.
While the 24-27 January) show is to use two-thirds of the hall – up from half and making it the largest hall at the show – occupying all of it has been ruled out.
‘Confidence in the market, and in our show, has meant we've already seen over 50 new companies signing up to join the 2016 show, alongside an 85% re-booking from last year. We've also seen significant growth from existing exhibitors who saw real value in the show and have requested more space,’ says Laraine Janes, January Furniture Show co-director.
Lebus, Ultra Furniture, VIDA, Breasley Consumer Products, Serene Furnishings, TCS, Kettle, Rauch, Forte, Nolte Mobel, Wiemann, Sherborne, Baker Furniture, Nicoletti, Gallery Direct, Blue Bone and Pacific Life Style are among the companies having larger stands in 2016.
‘While we have extended Hall 5, we're doing it for the right reasons - and that's to increase the offering to visitors and to add greater variety making it a “one stop shop". Our aim from the beginning has always been to keep the show focused and relevant so while we have expanded we are controlling the growth so that it's to the benefit of the visitors and exhibitors.
