Established and new brands succed at Manchester Furniture Show

The 2017 Manchester Furniture Show ended on a high on its last day, with many exhibitors reporting record days and better than expected sales.
 
Big name brands received enthusiastic responses to their new launches, James Hudson, Business Development Director at Gallery Direct said they had their best ever Manchester show, Nichola Bell Sales Director at Westbridge Furniture Designs said, “Our four new launches, two in our Elements and two in our Westbridge collection, went very well and overall our figures were better than last year - which was a great show for us, so we are delighted.”
 
Launching adventurous and completely new designs, Nolte were also jubilant, Sales Director Michael Tattersall stated that they had had an excellent show saying “We saw 95% of the buyers we wanted to see and got off to a great start with a fantastic Sunday.  Our new Cargo and Sunny models went down incredibly well with better than expected sales and we will definitely be back next year.”
 
New brands including Mason and Pearl, Furninova and Hartmann who all showed contemporary models, also reported delight at the reaction to their products and all said it was great opportunity to meet and spend time with serious and knowledgeable buyers.
 
Visitor numbers were consistent with previous years at just under 5000 over the 3 days. The attending buyers included many from large group and major independent stores, who despite narrating tricky trading conditions, saw Manchester as the perfect forum to select new products for their physical and on-line stores in readiness for the crucial autumn selling period. 
 
Other big names who reported enthusiastic responses to their new launches included Mike Storey from Ashley Manor, Mark Callgahan at Baker Furniture, Steve Lamb at VIDA Living, Mehmood Pirbhai at CIMC, Aubane Pattar at Furmanac and Tom Savidge at Carlton Furniture, who reported their best ever Manchester show.
 
Final praise was received from Paul Wesson, Sales Director at Whitemeadow who said, “We love the Manchester Furniture Show, it is a firm fixture in our calendar and it gets better every year.  We will be back next year.
 
The show organisers report that the re-bookings for the 2018 event are already high and the show will return to Manchester Central with established and new exhibitors on 15th-17th July 2018.
