The British Furniture Manufacturers’ new Furniture Component Expo is continuing to go from strength to strength, with the announcement of a second headline sponsor.
BeA UK (Fastening Systems Ltd) has pledged support for the event, joining the Vita Group as the two leading names behind the show, which takes place at the Telford International Centre on 24 and 25 April, 2024.
The BFM launched the Furniture Component Expo after feedback from members identified a gap in the market, with furniture-makers highlighting a need to browse the marketplace and seek out new innovations coming into the sector in a face-to-face setting.
Paul Shepherd of BeA Group UK, said: “Our products and approach are continuing to win customer favour as we increase our presence and market share in the furniture production sector, with service and innovation a key driver.
“Already successful in other markets, we see the very first BFM’s Furniture Component Expo in the UK as the ideal opportunity to introduce automation and automation ideas as a way forward in future proofing production lines within the furniture industry.”
Phil Spademan, BFM’s Managing Director, added: “It’s great news that BeA UK are on board as a headline sponsor, along with Vita Group.
“We are seeing an exciting level of take-up from companies who are keen to be involved with the expo, not only sponsors, but exhibitors too. We’ve been told that there is a real gap in the market for this type of business-to-business event and we are pleased to see it being so well received across the industry.”
