Fair launches hotel + hospitality precinct

15 April 2021

Following the launch of Hotel + Hospitality Furnishings at the Sydney Fair in February this year, the introduction of Hotel + Hospitality  Furnishings into Furnitex has seen a phenomenal response and support and is a clear indication of furniture manufacturers and suppliers keen to explore non-retail market opportunities. The launch of this new brand is consistent with the continued direction of Furnitex to increase its offering to non-retail furniture buyers and to provide further opportunities to manufacturers and suppliers to diversify their businesses and to compliment their current exposure to the retail furniture sector.

Hotel + Hospitality Furnishings follows the Decoration + Design model which in its first year delivered a 34% increase in the number of trade visitors for Furnitex and recently has seen a 50% growth in size over the past twelve months making it the major furniture fair for the interior design/decoration, architectural and specifier markets. The growth in non-retail furniture markets also clearly demonstrates the opportunities for furniture manufacturers and suppliers in targeting these less price-point driven market sectors.

Furnitex traditionally a retail furniture showcase is now without doubt Australia’s No.1 furniture and furnishings sourcing fair for furniture buyers across all industry sectors. The Furnitex brands – Decoration + Design, the Australian New Product Parade and Hotel + Hospitality Furnishings are unique in as much as all three are SPECIFIC – the products on show are only furniture and furnishings and the visitors are TARGETED – ONLY furniture/furnishings buyers.

Hotel + Hospitality Furnishings features over 60 suppliers from Furnitex & Decoration + Design to the non-retail furniture/furnishing buying sectors – hotels, hospitality venues (clubs and pubs), gaming venues, restaurants, cafes, convention and reception venue owners/managers and developers – making Furnitex the largest showcase of Hotel + Hospitality furniture/furnishings in Australia.

Recent Furnitex exhibitors servicing the hotel and hospitality sector include ACME Furniture, AH Beard, Bayliss, Casualife, Dare Global Furniture, Globe West, KM Tubular Industries, Sleepmaker, Tubeworks Furniture, Wembley Furniture and more.
