The National Bed Federation calls on retailers, manufacturers and suppliers of beds to participate in this year’s NBF Bed Industry Awards.
Now in their 12th year, the awards recognize the best of inspiration, design and innovation from UK bed retailers, manufacturers and suppliers.
New for 2021, the NBF Retail Champions Award, open to independents from fewer than 15 stores that stock NBF approved brands. Businesses with 15 or more stores are encouraged to participate in the National Retailer of the Year award, and the Online Retailer of the Year award is open to businesses that make at least 80% of their sales through the Internet.
For NBF manufacturers or member suppliers with environmental / green credentials, the Sustainability Award highlights those who may have implemented a comprehensive sustainability program, or simply taken much smaller but equally important steps to reduce their carbon footprint.
âSo,â asks the NBF, âwhy participate? Elevate your business profile – add the coveted winner’s emblem to your website or display your trophy in-store! Showcase Your Achievements – After a tough year, there’s no better opportunity to show off your hard work. Showcase your experience – whether you are a long established business or new to gaming, everyone is welcome. Recognize your team’s efforts – what exceptional things has your team accomplished in the past 12 months? Finally, the rewards are free to enter and are submitted online. “
The organizer hopes that the awards, sponsored by The Vita Group, will be presented at the Bed Show gala dinner on Tuesday, September 21 at the Telford International Center.
Entrants will be judged by an independent panel, and entries will close for the Sustainability Award and Retailer Awards on Friday July 23. More details on all awards, including this year’s judges, are available on the Bed Show website.
