Seddon also explained that the Tupelo market's expansion into the retail gift segment has added to the overall number of retailers registering for market. Close to seventy new companies will be showing in Tupelo in early January and many of them offer gift and home accessory products that have never really been available to retailers attending the Tupelo Furniture Market.
At least 110 new companies have leased space in Tupelo in the last year alone – More than half are exhibiting for the first time in January. The increase in the number of exhibiting companies, coupled with a 50 percent rise in registrations indicates that furniture retailers planning on attending in January should get a head start on booking hotel rooms.
"We have negotiated reduced rates at select hotels in Tupelo," said Seddon. "But, finding a good room at a good rate can be difficult, so we encourage everyone interested in securing hotel rooms to contact our office and we will make sure they get a good room at a fair price."
The Tupelo Furniture Market is one of the oldest and largest national furniture trade events in the United States and is held twice each year in Tupelo, Mississippi. The market's 2 million square feet facility is housed under one roof and close to 400 companies will showcase thousands of furniture, gift and home accessory products.
