Testimonials

Manchester Furniture Show has been successfully filling exhibitor order books for over 50 years.

Don’t just take our word for it – see what some of this year’s exhibitors said about the 2017 Show:

It has been a great show and overall our figures were better than last year – which was also a great show for us, so we are delighted.

Nichola Bell, Sales Director, Westbridge Furniture

Manchester is always a really good show for us. We are very happy and saw the visitors we wanted to see, and our new ranges have been well received and have sold very well.

Mark Callaghan, Managing Director, Baker Furniture

We love the Manchester Furniture Show; it is a firm fixture in our calendar and, like the January Furniture Show, it gets better every year.

Paul Wesson, Sales Director, Whitemeadow

We saw 95% of the buyers we wanted to see and got off to a great start with a fantastic Sunday. We will definitely be back next year.

Michael Tattersall, Sales Director, Nolte Mobel

With more orders taken than last year, it has been a great show. The relaxed feel of this show makes it a lovely show to do; we already know we will be back next year.

Aubane Pattar, Sales Director, Furmanac (Hestia, MiBed & MiChair)

This has been our best ever Manchester Show, so we are delighted.

James Hudson, Business Development Director, Gallery Direct

Excellent show. Our new launches have all been very well received, so we are extremely pleased.

Steve Lamb, Business Development Director, VIDA Living

This is such a good venue to meet buyers and show our new products. We have had great results with our new products being very well received. It is a good show.

Mehmood Pirbhai, Head of Sales, CIMC

2016 Show:

We’ve got some of our new models away and they were well received. This show is good for us to do because it focuses our minds on a twice yearly R&D cycle with launching product here, and then at the NEC in January. It also good to see so many of our customers and have a bit more time them here.

Karl Walker, Lebus Upholstery

Our new product has been really well received; we’ve had really good orders and we will be back next year.

James Stevenson, Baker Furniture

We have opened new accounts; our new venture with Moon’s fabrics has had a really good reception, so we are very pleased. This show has the right chemistry; its well organized, in a good venue and we get good buyers. It’s also good to see that the quality of exhibitors and stands is increasing year on year. It’s a good platform to get your message across.

Malcolm Hix, Wood Bros

This is our favourite show; it’s a great location and it’s a social show. We get the chance to spend a bit of time with customers and meet other people in the industry. It has exceeded our expectations, so we are very pleased.

Kevin Barfoot, Nathan

Once again we have done better than we expected, we have taken orders, met existing and new customers and had the opportunity to show our new models in a relaxed environment in a great location – the buzz of the city and great restaurants within an easy walk. It’s such an easy show to do and we love the feel of it. We’ll be here next year without doubt.

Kelvin Kennedy, Corndell Quality Furniture

This show has been great for raising our profile and meeting companies from every aspect of our industry. We have been able to explain to many exhibitors and visitors about the work that we do and the huge number of services we offer. It is important for us to be seen where our industry members congregate and we are delighted to be here.
