With a new look and new organising team for 2015, the all-new January Furniture Show was hailed a triumph by exhibitors and visitors alike. Such was its success that 90% of the 2015 exhibitors have already committed to booking for the 2016 show. To meet additional demand, the January Furniture Show will be extended to four days in 2016, starting on the traditional Sunday, and expanding into halls 4 & 5 at the NEC.
