TCHFM moves to June
Mr. Pierre Richard, president of the QFMA and The Canadian Home Furnishings Market, is pleased to announce that the next TCHFM will be held June 4-7, 2015, at the International Centre in Toronto. The change of dates from the traditional January timeframe is part of an overall plan to refine and reposition TCHFM in order to maximize the experience for buyers and exhibitors.
The decision to move TCHFM to June follows months of consultations with stakeholders. Moving TCHFM to June provides several advantages. First, the summertime offers better conditions for travel to Toronto, along with the opportunity to experience the city to a fuller extent. Second, it will open TCHFM participation to a larger number of exhibitors and buyers from Western Canada, the Atlantic Provinces and the U.S. Third, the June dates effectively reposition TCHFM on the North American landscape as part of the industry’s offerings along with High Point and Las Vegas. Also, as the Las Vegas winter Market has been advanced by one week, the new TCHFM dates will allow industry professionals who want to participate in both shows to do so without experiencing time constraints.
The date change is the first in a series of coordinated steps to enhance TCHFM’s appeal to the industry. As the 7th largest trade show in Canada, TCHFM presents the latest in home furnishings and decor, in more than 40 categories and various styles. The show’s status as a unique sourcing destination remains unchanged and enjoys broad industry support.
