NBF crowned ‘Best Trade Association’ in Furniture News Readers’ Choice Awards

We are thrilled to share that the NBF has been crowned ‘Best Trade Association’ in this year’s Furniture News Readers’ Choice Awards. The bed industry has truly taken the awards by storm, with seven of our members also securing top accolades.

This award is a testament to the hard work of our small but mighty team. We continuously strive to improve our support offer for our members and the wider trade. We stay ahead of the game with our dedicated sustainability support, keep members up to date with new standards and regularly survey them for feedback on how to improve the services we provide.

The NBF is unrivalled in the bed sector because we are solely dedicated to UK and Ireland-based bed manufacturers and their suppliers. Similarly, the Bed Show is solely dedicated to the bed trade. We encourage qualifying manufacturers and suppliers to get in touch for an informal chat about joining our fantastic trade association.

We’re also delighted to have recently welcomed our new executive director, Tristine Hargreaves, who will lead the NBF into a new era. We have several exciting projects in the pipeline for 2023 and beyond – stay tuned!

Editor-in-chief, Paul Farley, said: “Our third annual reader vote over our multichannel campaign attracted even more interest this year. Receiving the most votes in any category is a huge endorsement from our readers and sends a clear signal to the trade that you should be any serious business’s first port of call. Well done!”

Huge congratulations to the following award-winning members: Silentnight Group – Best UK Bed Manufacturer; Sleepeezee – Best Bed Supplier; L&P Springs UK – Best Bed Component Supplier; Simba Sleep – Best Boxed Mattress Brand; Hypnos Beds – Best for Sustainable Thinking; Emmiera Group (Homeserve) – Best Furniture Care/Repair Provider; Kyoto – Best Sofabed Supplier.

Thank you to the readers that voted for us, and congratulations to all the winners.
