With the 2016 January Furniture Show comes an all-new experience as this year’s visitors can expect to see the NEC, Birmingham as it’s never been seen before.

Thanks to a new £150 million leisure and entertainment destination onsite and a significant investment to Birmingham New Street, the new facilities are set to enhance the exhibitor and visitor experience for the 2016 show (24-27 January).

Resorts World Birmingham – the first of its kind in Europe – is set to bring life to the NEC campus with a host of major retailers, 18 bars and restaurants and an 11-screen Cineworld. Guests looking to stay overnight can enjoy the four star Genting Hotel, the first to open in Europe, and the lakeside complex also hosts the Genting International Casino.

This year has also seen the transformation of Birmingham New Street. With a glass atrium roof and a flagship John Lewis the new concourse is three and a half times bigger, providing more space for the 170,000 passengers who use the station every day.

Said Laraine Janes, co-director of the January Furniture Show: “The changes to the NEC campus plus the improvements at Birmingham New Street mirror the re-building of the January Furniture Show. The investment shows the confidence in the future of the venue and results in a better experience for all attendees.”
