A notable success, the two-day BFM Fabric Show London 2020 held at Chelsea FC’s West Stand was well attended by the cream of the UK upholstery industry and many large furniture retail groups.
James Lowe from Aqua Clean commented on the success of the show saying: “Aqua Clean had another very successful show at Chelsea this year. This show works every time, we are able to reach a great number of important and knowledgeable buyers in one go and show them our latest fabrics and fabric developments. Meeting our buyers face to face is essential and we can do that here in a relaxed and comfortable environment. We will definitely be back next year.”
The exhibitor list consisted of 38 prestigious exhibitors from around the world who presented a wide variety of high-grade upholstery fabrics and fabric treatments. Six new exhibitors joined the 2020 line-up: Antiprima and Aurim Home Décor from Italy, Audejas from Lithuania, Edinburgh Weavers from Scotland, Kacar Textile from Turkey and Morgan Fabrics from the USA.
Esteemed returning exhibitors from the UK, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Turkey completed the exhibitor list and were joined by some of the show’s sponsors including Aqua Clean, Orbital Vision and LTS (Lancashire Testing Services) who gave demonstrations and explanations of their systems and services.
Commenting on his first show at the helm of BFM Fabric Show, Nick Garratt, MD of the BFM said: “I am delighted with the success of BFM Fabric Show London 2020. Both our exhibitors and visitors have praised the format, quality and presentation of this show and despite some difficulties with dates, it has been very gratifying to see every space filled and plenty of BFM member companies coming through the door. Everyone I spoke to appreciates this event as the best opportunity to select premium fabrics from premium suppliers all under one roof in the UK. We are already planning the 2021 event.”
