The Canadian Furniture Show Opens Thursday

The 43rd edition of the four-day Canadian Furniture Show kicks off in Ontario tomorrow.

This year’s market features several new events, including the addition of a Consumer Day Sunday, June 7. The public will have the opportunity to see 425,000 square feet of furniture showrooms created by about 250 exhibitors.

Consumer Day is a significant change to the event which has essentially been a trade show for more than 40 years. Previously known as The Canadian Home Furnishings Market or TCHFM, the 2015 Show has a new name and logo and was moved from January to June. The changes were requested by the industry and steered by a National Advisory Committee with 15 professionals from different industry sectors and from various regions of the country. The committee prioritized solutions to attract new exhibitors and visitors and ensure the event’s sustainability and growth. 

“As industry professionals have done for several decades, the public will be able to see thousands of furniture pieces, appliances, mattresses, rugs, lighting, and accessories before they are available in the stores,” said Pierre Richard, president and CEO. “Having a Consumer Day provides exhibitors with a unique opportunity to communicate directly with consumers, get a first-hand view of their reaction to their products, and gain some exposure for their brand. As for the Show, holding a Consumer Day became a must to attract new exhibitors, enhance the visibility of the event and the entire Canadian industry, and ensure the revival of the Show.”

The 2015 Canadian Furniture Show will feature 95 new exhibitors, more than double the average of recent years.
