The only furniture trade show curated by buyers for buyers, INDX Furniture is set to return on 20-22 June off the back of a record-breaking January edition.
Curated by leading buying group, Associated Independent Stores (AIS), INDX Shows is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2023, with exhibitors writing record business at INDX Furniture’s landmark edition in January.
The summer show plans to build upon these achievements, and will see the return of a host of attractions that proved popular among exhibitors and visitors alike at the previous expo.
The event will directly follow AIS’ member conference on 19 June, and will open with a members-only day on 20 June, featuring exclusive offers and ranges. Phil Pond, Director of Consumer Behaviour Insights and Trends at Scarlet Opus, will also return on the day to offer one-on-one sessions to members on product trends and the in-store retail experience.
Members day will round out with a networking drinks at 3pm, before opening to the wider trade on 21 and 22 June.
Emma Rackley, director of furniture and home at AIS, said: “After such a strong January edition, we made it our priority to build upon what worked well in order to keep delivering value for our members, exhibitors and visitors. This means we’ll be incorporating more exclusive lines and offers at our summer show, alongside welcoming the ever-popular Phil Pond back to Cranmore Park to offer his insight to the trade.”
Moreover, the show will also serve as the debut for a number of new hand-picked suppliers, including premium upholsterers Halo, the Italian-made Egoitaliano, leading British manufacturer Michael Tyler, and luxury outdoor furniture supplier Emelda Grace. Two trade-favourite brands will also return to the show after a short absence, in the form of Baker and Tetrad.
Rackley concluded: “We have pulled out all of the stops to ensure that the June edition of INDX Furniture is just as successful as January’s. Over the course of three days, we look forward to welcoming all avenues of the trade to Cranmore Park for order-writing, networking and more.”
