TUPELO, Miss., Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Producers of the Tupelo Furniture Market are encouraging both attendees and exhibitors of the upcoming February 25-28 event to contact the Tupelo office to make sure they can secure hotel accommodations. According to show management, good weather and a positive outlook in the furniture sector are bringing buyers in from throughout the country and hotel rooms in the region are filling up.
"We are very pleased with where we are thus far in terms of registrations for the market, and the weather is expected to be pleasant, so we expect a good turnout," said Kevin J. Seddon, president of the furniture market. Seddon went on to explain that the economy has continued to improve and this fact has benefitted the furniture industry. "More than 50 new companies will be showing at this spring's market compared to just last fall, and more than 15 of our existing companies have expanded," Seddon continued. New products and expanding showrooms attract more retailers to market, he said. They need to replenish their inventory as they prepare for warmer weather and more store traffic.
"We have long-standing relationships with all the hotels in the region, and there will be plenty of rooms available but finding them can sometimes be difficult," explained Adam Cleveland, COO of the Tupelo market. "We secure blocks of rooms for our show participants, so we ask everyone planning an overnight stay during the furniture market to book through us so we can quickly find them a hotel nearby, at a reduced price and within driving distance of the facility."
Anyone needing to reserve a hotel room should call Joyce Collins, the market's director of housing, as soon as possible. Hotel rooms booked through the Tupelo Furniture Market's housing department are often less expensive than those booked directly with the hotel.
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 at the Tupelo Furniture Market. The market facilities' 2.5 million square feet will house more than 500 companies showcasing thousands of furniture and accessory products.
