May 2022 | Exhibitor and visitor feedback hails show a success
As part of the INDX Home expansion, INDX Beds & Bedroom arrived at Cranmore Park Conference and Exhibition Centre in Solihull on 26-27 April and the show was attended by an upbeat flock of retailers, and supported by suppliers including Emma, Gainsborough, Harrison Spinks, Healthbeds, Highgrove, Hypnos, Julian Bowen, Kaydian, Kaymed, GNG Group (Komfi), Limelight Beds, MA Living, Millbrook, Relyon, Rest Assured, Silentnight, Sealy, Sleepeezee, Sweet Dreams and Tempur.
Visiting buyers displayed a strong appetite to buy, and the show has been heralded a success by exhibitors, who have been quick to praise the format of the tradeshow and the business written across the two days:
“INDX Beds & Bedroom has been a fantastic opportunity for us to present all our ranges to a wide range of customers in a professional setting with great facilities”- David Wescomb, RELYON Beds Ltd
“We had a fantastic couple of days at INDX Beds & Bedroom and we signed-up some serious new retail partners with others pending” - Neil Robinson, Emma
Brought to market by leading UK buying group Associated Independent Stores (AIS), the show organisers also introduced the ‘Retail Insights’ series of onsite speaker sessions (www.indxshows.co.uk/indx-home/beds-bedroom/blog/1097-introducing-indx-retail-insights-the-business-of-sleep).
Exploring ‘the business of sleep’ and tackling topics including sustainability, circularity, and the importance of sleep, the Retail Insights were led by a selection of industry experts, headlined by Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill and well received by attendees and participants alike:
“It’s been great to see so many of our customers and retail partners at INDX Beds & Bedroom and it’s been great to be able to talk about new product and new developments. The new guest speaker sessions were also well attended – it really shows our industry’s passion for momentum and development” – Richard Gretton, Hypnos Beds
"We had a great visit to the show, we thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the guest speakers were a great concept” -Maria Jones, Land of Beds
