The January Furniture Show will return to a Sunday start and four day format from 2016, the exhibition organiser has announced.

The NEC event will take place Sunday 24th January to Wednesday 27th January 2016, with Furniture Fairs saying an exhibitor survey from last month’s show returned 70 per cent in favour of four days and 80 per cent wanting a Sunday start.

Halls 4 and 5 will also be available next year. January Furniture Show co-director Laraine Janes said: “Listening to what our exhibitors and the trade wants has always been important to us which is why we gave everyone taking part in this year's show an opportunity to tell us when and for how long they would like the 2016 show to run.

“The overwhelming majority told us they wanted it to run for four days and they wanted it to start on a Sunday. We have also managed to secure the more traditional, later January slot to accommodate the month's busy international exhibition calendar."
