The two-day BFM organised London Fabric Show 2019 ended with praise from both exhibitors and visitors on Tuesday.
The well-attended and sociable event saw visitor numbers consistent with the previous year. Visitors included the biggest names in UK upholstery and many large-scale UK retailers. In all 38 high-end exhibitors from 6 countries, including the prestigious Flemish producers from Belgium and highly regarded companies from Spain, Turkey and the UK showed their new designs.
Exhibitors left the event singing its praises with Julian Smith from Abraham Moon saying “It would take 2 months of solid driving around to see all of the companies that we can see here in 2 days. Plus we can show more here and present it better. This show is a winner and we’ll definitely be back next year.”
New exhibitors Bill Beaumont and Ragolle Fabrics were among the exhibitors who expressed their delight at the number and quality of the visitors. Outgoing MD of the BFM Jackie Bazeley said, “It is great to go out on a high, we are extremely pleased with how well the show was received by both visitors and exhibitors. The unusual venue works for everyone and we thank all of those who attended.”
The West Stand at the impressive Chelsea FC ground once again provided the backdrop to the event and the show will return to Chelsea FC in 2020. The dates will be announced shortly.
