Over the past months the furniture industry has experienced very difficult and challenging times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With North Carolina still in opening phases and the continuing uncertainty around when large events will be able to take place safely again, show management has made the decision to postpone the 2020 show until 2021.

We feel this decision is what is best for the industry so that everyone can focus on recovery, rebuilding, and getting back to work.  

We sincerely thank you for supporting Furniture Manufacturing Expo and look forward to seeing everyone July 20-21, 2021.

  • "We met several new vendors whom we plan to follow up with plus many vendors we already knew. There were some new and exciting new products we would not have been exposed to if we had not attended."

  • “It’s been a great show for us. We’ve done a ton of demonstrations, and it’s provided us the opportunity to communicate with a larger number of manufacturers that sent full groups of people to attend.”
