The Flooring Show has claimed more than 100 firms have signed up as exhibitors for its next show in September.

The event on 2-4 September at the Harrogate International Centre, will include an expanded seminar programme, which will focus on assisting flooring retailers to build their businesses in difficult times.

For the commercial sector, a dedicated one day conference programme based on leading case studies will meet the CPD requirements of facilities managers, specifiers and installers.

“We’re absolutely delighted that our core group of exhibitors has remained steadfastly loyal to the show and more than 90 per cent of the available space is now firmly contracted,” said Flooring Show director Wendy Adams.

“We’re also seeing a healthy level of new enquiries from first-time exhibitors to the show, which is very encouraging.”

The one-day commercial conference programme on 3 September will cover specialist floorings that meet specific business requirements, and is being developed with the input of the Facilities Managers Association; the British Institute of Facilities Management, the RIBA and RICS.

“This year marks the show’s 50th anniversary since its launch in 1962 as the Northern Floor Coverings Fair,” said Paul Stott, the event’s marketing director. “But what is most significant is the emphasis this year’s show will place on the way floor coverings influence other interior design decisions in the retail sector, and the increasingly specialist nature of floor coverings in the commercial sector.”

Harrogate International Centre (HIC) will outsource further jobs and put a stronger focus on corporate events in a bid to offset record losses at the venue.
