Park home furniture - Holiday Park & Resort show 2016

On the 9th and 10th of November, Trent Furniture was one of many exhibitors at the Holiday Park & Resort show at the NEC Birmingham. If you’ve never been before, it’s a fantastic event aimed at those who want to start a holiday business or grow and improve an existing one. 

This year, a wide range of exhibitors were on show, selling their products and services to holiday businesses. Whatever you need – or would like – for your business, you’re bound to find it at this show. From hot tubs and playgrounds to ice cream and coffee, every must-have and nice-to-have was on display.

Park home furniture and outdoor venues

Of course, we had our very own stand, promoting our park home furniture which is suitable for all types of venues. Whether you require contemporary tables and chairs for your on-site restaurant or traditional sofas and stools for your holiday homes, we have more than 60 years’ experience. We had a wonderful reception at the show and enjoyed speaking to everyone who came over to us.

As well as hundreds of exhibitors, there were also several speakers at the show. These seminars and workshops offered a great deal of helpful advice to new businesses as well as established ones. With the peak holiday season now at an end, this is the perfect time of year for businesses to get inspired and take some time to improve or grow their offerings. 

The impact of Brexit and the UK holiday industry

Of course, the impact of Brexit will affect the UK holiday industry greatly in 2017. Due to a weak pound, Brits are expected to avoid travelling abroad next year and instead take the family on a staycation. This is great news for UK holiday businesses, but they need to be ready for this influx of customers and ensure their facilities stand out from their competitors. Ensuring each holiday home has up to date, comfortable furniture is key to making your accommodation look good and therefore attract bookings.

Menna Jones, 

“Having looked on the internet for various options we came to the conclusion that an ‘American diner with a difference’ was what we were looking for – something funky, yet comfortable,”

“The quality of the furniture, when it arrived, surpassed our expectations. The customer service we received was brilliant – we couldn’t have wished for better. We highly recommend Trent Furniture to anyone looking to buy from them.”

The golf club ordered 30 black and white American diner chairs, five vista tables, 24 Monaco red wicker chairs, two black Manhattan sofas, four chrome pyramid coffee tables and six round aluminium tables for both indoor and outdoor use.
