NEW SIGNINGS AND NEW WEBSITE FOR MANCHESTER FURNITURE SHOW

The 2018 Manchester Furniture Show (MFS) returns to Manchester Central on 15th to 17th July and is already 90% sold out
 
Major UK names are joining the 2018 line-up including Siren, Divine Sleep, Slumberdream, Danalight and The Great Chair Company. New International exhibitors include La-Z-Boy, Caligaris and DeRucci.
 
The addition to MFS of the Midpoint Furniture Exhibition this year - which will keep its own identity occupying the Charter Hall, will give the show a new look and feel, and visitor numbers are expected to rise.
 
Tetrad, Michael Tyler, Richard Stamp Agencies, Italia Living, Kesterport, Gala Collezione and SITS are among the big name Midpoint brands exhibiting. Baker Furniture will move from its usual slot in The Cobden Room to join its fellow Midpoint exhibitors in the Charter Hall.
 
A long list of Manchester favorites including VIDA Living, Westbridge, Buoyant, Ashley Manor, Blue Bone, Whitemeadow, Alpha Designs, Gallery Direct, Rauch, Seconique, Heartlands and Furmanac will all be returning after a successful show in 2017.
 
The new show MFS website, which is in the style of big sister the January Furniture Show’s site - bringing the two shows closer together, is now live and visitor registration will open shortly.
 
Speaking of the changes to the show Cleere Scamell who joins Laraine Janes and Theresa Raymond as an Event Director at MFS for the first time said, “I enjoyed the show as a visitor last year and am excited to be involved hands-on this year.  We have an easy-to-use new website which reflects the summer feel of the show, and we are excited about Midpoint joining us.  The great brands it brings will add to the already terrific line-up, and will give visitors a huge amount to see. The relaxed and open feel of Manchester won’t change, but visitors may find they need to spend longer to see it all.”
