The show, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in the town last year, brings the flooring industry together for the only dedicated B2B event in the UK calendar.
Joe Manby Limited will provide full event services, including stand design and installation, electrics, graphics, and feature areas, including The Trends Hub, Business Enrichment Theatre, British Pavilion and The Wool Story.
The 2014 show will build on the success of last year’s show which attracted more than 120 exhibiting brands from 12 countries and approximately 2,300 trade visitors from 17 countries.
The programme for this year includes a raft of demonstrations and seminar presentations delivered by keynote speakers in the Business Enrichment Theatre. New features for 2014 include The Wool Story, which will show the process of turning fleeces into carpets, and The British Wool Pavilion which will have a themed room set designed by the style team from Homes and Garden magazine. With the addition of some big carpet manufacturers back on board – Brintons, Axminster, Ulster, Adam Carpets the show expects to see a major increase in visitors.
Wendy Adams the Event Director of the show, whose company also works on various other B2B shows said: “We work with Joe Manby Limited on a number of shows and always receive great service. They’re all extremely friendly people and the team can’t do enough for us and our exhibitors – they play a key part in the success of the show.
“Due to the excellent service we have always received from Joe Manby Ltd we’ve have retained their service for our March/April Bridal Show, despite moving the location this year from its traditional home in Harrogate to London.”
Richard Manby, director of Joe Manby Limited, said: “We’re delighted to be working with the Flooring Show team again and it represents a continued endorsement of our service, quality and reliability, as well as our ability to deliver.”
