The National Bed Federation (NBF) has announced the launch of its 2016 Bed Industry Awards.

The awards, which were established in 2010 and honour the brightest and best enterprises in the bed market, are open to businesses of all shapes and sizes.

The format of the awards remains the same but this year there have been some changes to the categories, including the introduction of a new Judges Choice Award.

Bed Manufacturer of the Year and Bed Component Supplier of the Year categories will continue but instead of Multiple Bed Retailer and Independent Bed Retailer, there will be Bed Retailer of the Year, which will be split into two awards – those with a beds turnover of over £5m and those with a beds turnover of less than £5m.

Jessica Alexander, executive director of the NBF, said: “The Bed Industry Awards are an integral part of the Bed Show and we’re delighted to be running them for the sixth year. They are a fantastic way of recognising and celebrating the most successful bed manufacturers, suppliers and retailers.”

Winners will be announced at the Bed Show Gala Dinner on Tuesday 20 September 2016, which will be hosted by British comedian, Marcus Brigstocke.
