      There actually are some furniture trade shows coming up this year in the UK that can certainly be a good source for you to find lots of bedding furniture wholesalers and also to get some good ideas about trends and designs in the industry.

      There is an upcoming furniture exhibition in Manchester, from the 17th to the 20th of July 2011, at Manchester Central. "Manchester Furniture Show" is the second biggest furniture show in the UK, with a huge variety of exhibitors displaying a range of domestic furniture, including bedroom furniture.

      If your bedding business is oriented towards interior design or high-end markets, here are some trade shows that you can find interesting:

      • "100% Design London 2011" will be until September, from the 22nd to the 25th, and will be held in London at Earls Court. Here you will have the opportunity to explore new ideas and trends in furniture design, it is an excellent place to be for interior designers, architects and retailers as it boasts the latest product launches worldwide, bearing designs from many countries like Italy, Brazil and Korea. And it will be a great opportunity for you to explore what's out there in the industry. To obtain more information and register to this event, log on.

      • Another event which will take place in September is "Decorex", which is an exhibition of high-end international design products, its target audience are professional interior designers and interior design retailers, particularly those in residential or hotel markets. It displays unique pieces of furniture and interior design, leaning towards craftmanship and inspiration. The exhibition will take place at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, in London, on the 25th to 28th of September. For more information and registration, access their website Decorex International 2011 - HOME

      • "The Sleep Event 2011" is coming on the 23rd and 24th of November, and will be taking place at the Business Design Centre in London. This show is oriented towards hotels, mainly, but I think you can get very good ideas and contacts from this event. For more information and to register, browse into their site.

      There are also a number of fair and trade shows, starting 2012:

      In January we have "Interiors Birmingham", which is the largest interiors exhibition in the UK, boasting more than 600 exhibitors, including well known brands, as well as interior manufacturers and suppliers. This trade show displays products for high-end to volume markets, and from modern to traditional styles. You can also take advantage of the free seminars it has to offer. The exhibition starts on the 22nd of January 2012, and ends on the 25th.To register and obtain more information, go onto interiors 2012 - The UK's largest trade interiors exhibition

      Also in Birmingham, "KBB" is a showcase for kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, tiling, heating and plumbing solutions. From 4th to 7th March, 2012, it is also one of UK's largest trade events. For more information and to register, log onto KBB Birmingham

      Finally, there is "Pulse Home", an exhibition for interior accessories (this includes bedroom accessories, of course). "Pulse Home" will be held in June 2012, form the 10th to the 12th, at Earls Court, in London. Their motto is "discover stand-out products for stand-out stores", here you will find the most innovative products from British and international brands, with over 500 selected exhibitors.
