Tupelo Market

Bedding is big and this comes as no surprise to producers of the Tupelo Furniture Market, who plan on holding the 3rd Mattress Mania event during their 60th biannual furniture trade show, January 5 - 8.  Retail bedding sales are predicted to hit $16.1 billion by 2018, a 15.8% increase over the 2013 mark.  The Tupelo Furniture Market is one of the larger furniture trade events in the United States; however, in recent years the market has quietly added more than 40 bedding manufacturers to its base of exhibiting companies, and the January event will showcase the largest number of mattress and bedding companies east of the Mississippi River!  Bedding companies once again have been asked to develop "one-of-a-kind" show promotions to create "mania" in Tupelo!  Special bedding product demonstrations will be offered in building 4 of the facility by leading manufacturers and David Perry, Furniture Today's bedding editor will speak to market attendees on Thursday morning, January 5 in building 6.

"The Tupelo market's Mattress Mania promotion offers more than ever before," said Kevin J. Seddon, president of the furniture market.  "There is no doubt thatTupelo has become a leading showcase for bedding and we are working closely with our manufacturers to be sure and offer retailers plenty of buying specials and opportunities to learn about new and innovative products that can increase their bottom line."

According to Seddon, more than 40 bedding companies will exhibit inTupelo again in January.  Just some of the companies participating in the Mattress Mania promotion include Symbol Mattress, Restonic Sleep Products, Capital Bedding, Eclipse, Serta, Simmons, Cassady Closeouts, Mlily, Bed Boss, Malouf, Sleeptronic/King Koil of Texas, Emerald Sleep Systems and Brooklyn Bedding. Serta, Simmons, Sleeptronic/King Koil of Texas, Eclipse, Restonic Sleep Products and W. Silver will be holding product demonstrations in building 4 each day of the market.

"We are confident that as many as half of our bedding companies will be added to this Mattress Mania promotions list in the next few weeks and we plan on posting those involved and their market specials on our website at www.tupelofurnituremarket.com/mattress-mania," explained Seddon.  "Our bedding exhibitors want to be clear that the special pricing and programs will only be available at the Tupelo Furniture Market and they will not be taking orders by telephone prior to market."

The Tupelo Furniture Market is one of the oldest and largest national furniture trade events in the United States and is held twice each year in Tupelo, Mississippi.  The market facility's 2 million square feet is all under one roof and on one level and will house more than 500 companies and brands showcasing thousands of furniture and accessory products.
