Rise and Shine with the NBF Bed Show Awards

Get ready to shine in the National Bed Federation’s (NBF) annual Bed Industry Awards for 2024! The prestigious awards are your chance to be recognised as one of the brightest and best in the bed market.

The awards celebrate excellence in the UK and Ireland’s bed industry and offer a perfect platform for bed retailers, manufacturers, and suppliers to showcase their outstanding achievements from the past year.

This year, there are four awards for retailers that predominantly stock NBF member brands and four for NBF member manufacturers and suppliers.

The Small NBF Retail Champion of the Year and Large NBF Retail Champion of the Year awards are available for independent bed retailers that are part of the NBF Retail Champions Scheme, supporting businesses whose product offer is at least 50% NBF-approved brands (Retail Champions) or 100% NBF-approved brands (Premier Retail Champions). 

The highly coveted National Bed Retailer of the Year Award is geared towards businesses with more than 20 stores, and the Online Bed Retailer of the Year Award for retailers with at least 80% of their sales made by the internet. Entrants for all retailer awards are encouraged to demonstrate their support for NBF-approved brands both online and in-store where applicable during the past year.

For NBF members, the awards include the highly sought-after Bed Manufacturer of the Year and Supplier of the Year categories, shining a spotlight on your outstanding efforts and achievements from the past year.

The Bed Product of the Year and Component Product of the Year Awards recognise excellence in innovation and design, with sustainability playing a vital role in the criteria, in line with the NBF’s Green agenda.

Winners will be announced at the NBF Bed Industry Awards Ceremony & Gala Dinner on Tuesday, 24 September at Telford International Centre, hosted by Strictly Come Dancing’s Anton Du Beke, who will also welcome and entertain the 500 guests.

Anton Du Beke has a surprising connection to the world of beds. Before his Strictly fame, he worked as a bed salesman for the Bed Post in Petts Wood, South London.

Don’t sleep on this opportunity to showcase your company! Entry is now open via the Bed Show website. Take the time to carefully read the criteria and top tips provided; they are designed to help and maximise your chance of being shortlisted – and perhaps even win!

The NBF will publish a shortlist of retailer finalists before the awards ceremony in September.
