Offering its unique mix of both British bed manufacturers and component suppliers, the National Bed Federation’s Bed Show is back for 2015 and remains the place to be for anyone interested in sourcing components for making mattresses and beds.
Supported once again by all the big names in the bed industry, this year’s exhibition also welcomes four new additions including bespoke manufacturer for caravans, motorhomes and boats, Duvalay; bedding supplier, Global Components; Birmingham-based manufacturer, Kozee Sleep Midlands, also trading as Shakespeare Beds; and MA Living which has a long family heritage in beds, mattresses and headboards.
Says Jessica Alexander, NBF executive director: “September is the right time in the industry calendar for a bed event and over the past six years we’ve listened to feedback and increased space to accommodate more exhibitors and larger stands which has resulted in our visitor numbers increasing year-on-year.
“Whatever changes we’ve made we’ve always kept true to the original concept which is to provide a cost-effective, focused, no frills event dedicated to British-made beds – and it works!”
The event will keep the same format – two days at the Telford International Centre – opening Tuesday (9am-5.30pm) and Wednesday (9am-4pm) on the 22nd and 23rd September. Parking and entry remains free and there will be complimentary refreshment vouchers for visitors.
The NBF Bed Show Gala Dinner and Awards night will once again be held on the Tuesday evening of the show, hosted by Gyles Brandreth. For the fifth year running there will be Best in Class Awards, with five categories on offer: Bed Manufacturer of the Year; Bed Components Supplier of the Year; Multiple Bed Retailer of the Year; Independent Bed Retailer of the Year, and Bed E-Tailer of the Year.
