London Fabric takes place in the corporate boxes at Chelsea FC's Stamford Bridge Stadium
London Fabric, a key trade show for the sofa manufacturing industry, attracted record visitor numbers to its 2017 edition, organisers say.


The February 26–27 show saw an 18 percent increase in visitors with the British Furniture Manufacturers' association (BFM), saying it believed more would have attended but for inclement weather.

"Prior to the start of the show we thought that the weather might prevent visitors from attending, while it clearly had an effect, it did not stop the majority from getting to Chelsea," said BFM md Jackie Bazeley.

"I have had many positive comments from visitors about the quality of the exhibitors and the fabrics and finishes they showed, along with a great number of compliments from both our returning and new exhibitors. I already have a waiting list of companies eager to exhibit and we are already looking forward to another successful event in 2019."

Next year's edition will take place February 25–26, 2019.
