We have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Bed Show (22-23 September) due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Executive director of the NBF, Jessica Alexander said: “After careful consideration it is with great regret that we announce the postponement of the Bed Show until September 2021. It’s been a tough decision to make but feedback from our members highlighted that this was the right outcome – we don’t want to compromise the event or anyone’s safety.
“The Bed Show has become part of our lives for the last decade and we will miss networking and celebrating all the fantastic achievements of our industry at the Gala Dinner and Awards.”
The Bed Show, which has been running for 10 years, is the only bed-specific exhibition in the UK. It will return 21-22 September 2021 as originally planned and at the Telford International Centre. The Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony will also return next year.
Added Jessica: “We thank everyone for their continued support and understanding and look forward to next year – we will be working very hard to make sure our comeback in 2021 is something really special.”
