CHFA sets winter show
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario – The Canadian Home Furnishings Alliance (CHFA) has announced that the 2019 edition of the Toronto Winter Furniture Show (TWFS) will run from Saturday, 26 January to Monday, 28 January. Currently, some 14 manufacturers are scheduled to take part.
As has been its normal practise, TWFS will be held at the same time as the Toronto Gift Fair, which will be held at the International Centre and the Toronto Congress Centre from Sunday 27 January to Thursday, 31 January.
It should also be noted the Las Vegas Market will also run from 27 to 31 January.
In a statement, the CHFA noted the winter show provides an opportunity for Canadian resources with permanent showrooms in the Greater Toronto Area with launch new product at the beginning of the year.
“Many participants and retail buyers who support the TWFS don’t visit the High Point or Las Vegas markets,” the association said. “Many smaller independent retailers who do not travel abroad and source from Canada, use this market to purchase fresh merchandise for their floors. This show is convenient and efficient for them.”
According to the CHFA’s web site, the following are expected to participate in this year’s show:
Two resources with permanent showrooms in the International Centre will show: Marcantonio Designs (showroom 201); and, Ren-Will (showroom 101).
One company that’s also showing within the gift show itself will also participate: Springwater Woodcraft, which can be found in Hall 8, Booth 8500 in the Toronto Congress Centre.
