NBF Bed Show 2017 hailed a success

Jessica Alexander, executive director of the National Bed Federation, which organises the show, says: “Exhibitor feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and visitors were impressed with the quality of this year’s show.

“Over the past eight years, visitor numbers have remained fairly consistent and this show was no different. Over the two days, we had more than 1,500 visitors with 15% revisiting on the second day.

“We also undertook visitor feedback exit surveys and will be analysing that data to find out if there’s anything we could improve for next year. We want to ensure that we are still creating an event that is cost effective for exhibitors but has the unique product focus and the best experience for visitors.”

As the doors closed on the UK’s biggest bed event – where more than 80 brands presented the latest in beds and mattresses – exhibitor feedback confirmed it had been another successful two-day show, with praise for the show’s smooth organisation, and many commenting that it seemed particularly busy this year.

The 2018 Bed Show will take place on 18th and 19th September.
