The furniture industry event calendar has become increasingly diverse in
recent years, as suppliers and event companies seek the best return for
their marketing budgets.
Here’s some of the key fairs for September onwards in 2013 :
September is a busy month for international trade events, and the UK
is no exception. It kicks off with Spring Fair’s smaller sister event, Autumn Fair International (NEC, Birmingham, 1st-4th September), then moves on to the busy London Design Festival, (at various venues across London, 14th-22nd September), which ties in with: 100% Design (Earls Court, London, 18th-21st September), the UK’s biggest design trade event; the up-and-coming Tent London (Old Truman Brewery, London, 19th-22nd September); and the upmarket Decorex International (now adjacent to Kensington Palace, London, 22nd-25th September).
The Bed Show (Telford
International Centre, 24-25th September) is the UK’s largest gathering
of bed industry suppliers, and is fast becoming one of the industry’s
most popular fixtures.
Also taking place in September is Glee
(Birmingham NEC, 15-17th September), the largest garden industry event
which features a handful of furniture providers – those interested in
garden furniture should also check out SOLEX (Birmingham NEC, 8-10th July).
