Australian Franchises


Written on the 25 March 2013 by Bedshed


International trade shows to witness the latest trends and supplier visits to inspect new products in the pipeline were among the highlights of two recent international business trips for Bedshed delegates.

Bedshed Chief Operating Officer, Gavin Culmsee, said a contingent of 15 Bedshed franchisees from around the nation visited Singapore, Malaysia and China as part of a twophase international business trip.

“Our Merchandise Advisory Council comprises franchisees and senior staff who travel overseas regularly to ensure we remain at the forefront of product design and innovation,” said Mr Culmsee.

“We value the input from our franchisee partners because they know their customers’ needs better than anyone.

“They talk to suppliers about what customers are asking for and have substantial input into the products that will end up on their shop floor, translating to greater sales and business revenue,” he said.

Mr Culmsee said international trade shows were an important component of the delegation’s international itinerary.

“We found the Singapore trade show to be particularly modern and a major step forward in terms of its influence from Europe,” he said.

Mr Culmsee said Bedshed would soon introduce new product innovations into stores, including technologically advanced bedroom furniture with concealed television brackets and Bluetooth technology.

“The bedroom is almost the last room in the house to be infiltrated by technology and our franchisees are thrilled to be bringing the latest from the international bedroom furniture scene to their Australian consumers,” he said.
