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 2016 Show:

The open space feel worked well for Gallery. The ranges we launched in January were viewed with fresh eyes which resulted in good orders – in fact we took far more orders than last year and we are delighted.

James Hudson, Gallery Direct

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

Our new Riviera has been the star of the show and our Express range, which we launched at the NEC, has done extremely well. We’ve had a more open stand this year and that has brought more visitors on to see us. We are very happy with the show; it has a great atmosphere and we are coming back next year.

Michael Tattersall, Nolte Mobel

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

We’ve had a really good show, we’ve opened new accounts and taken lots of orders. Our new models have been extremely well received. This is always a good opportunity to see our customers and meet new ones; we have been very busy and have hardly stopped. We enjoy this show and will definitely be back next year.

Aubane Hilliard, Furmanac

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.
