January Furniture Show 2018 – A Huge Success!

The UK’s biggest furniture and interiors event, The January Furniture Show took place on 21st-24th January at the NEC, Birmingham, attracting over 20,000 trade and retail buyers, including 5,000+ interior designers and contract specifiers seeking high quality, commercially focused fabrics and soft furnishings.

BITA were proud to partner up with organisers of the show to offer BITA members with an affordable platform to exhibit in the fabrics and soft furnishings pavilion.  Attending BITA members were Art of the Loom, Norfolk House Consultants, Edmund Bell and Jacqueline Milton.

BITA member, Interior fabric designer, Jacqueline Milton said “…It was the easiest trade show I’ve ever done! BITA took care of everything for me, from setting up the display to manning the stand. I had daily updates, leads and a full visitor list after the show. I was delighted with the results, not only were the leads really positive, I’ve already had new customers sign up!”

Building on the success of 2018, organisers of the event have released dates for 2019: 20th to 23rd January.

Event director, Cleere Scamell of Clarion Events said “We were delighted to work with BITA this year as there is great synergy between the show and the interests of the BITA members which we are very happy to support and help with growing their client base.

The January Furniture Show is a diverse event which serves the whole of the UK furniture industry, including fabrics, textiles and interiors which are all key parts of a sector with which BITA helps us connect.”
