January Furniture Show 2020 Attracts Key Buyers in Every Sector

Exhibitors in all five halls of the UK’s biggest furniture buying event reported strong sales and positive reactions to the 1000s of new products launched at the four day show. Continuing to attract the key UK buyers from independent, group and on-line retail stores, as well as contract and interior design buyers, January Furniture Show continues to cement its place as the best furniture and interiors show in the UK - for all levels of the market.

Confidence was shown in every hall with plenty of new stands – Duresta, G Plan, Lebus, ROM and Tetrad were just a few of the big name brands who enhanced their new collections with refreshed backdrops this year.

The two new sectors – BEDS@JFS and LIGHT@JFS introduced in 2019, proved a hit for the second year running, with both attracting large numbers of buyers on all four days. While visitor numbers remained consistent with previous years, exhibitors expressed their satisfaction with the quality of the buyers present. Tom Savidge from Carlton & Vintage, Steve Lamb from VIDA Living and Nichola Bell from Westbridge were among those commenting on the large number of key buyers they engaged with on their stands.

Event Director, Cleere Scamell said: “The 2020 January Furniture Show has been a great success. Rising to the challenges of the uncertainty that has pervaded the UK recently, our exhibitors showed confidence and dedication of purpose - presenting imaginative and beautifully made new collections. Also rising to the challenge of reducing waste and the re-use of materials, our exhibitors proved adept at that too with a host of ranges and products made from recycled wood, plastics and composite materials.

Cleere continued: “We would like to thank all of our exhibitors for their energy and inventiveness demonstrated at JFS 2020, and a big thank you to all our visitors for supporting this must attend event. We start planning 2021 straight away and look forward to welcoming our exhibitors and visitors again next year.”
