Overseas buying trips help Bedshed set the trend

Overseas buying trips help Bedshed set the trend

The Bedshed team has just returned from the company’s second buying trip of the year, bringing
with them the freshest trends in bedroom furniture and technology advancements.
The Merchandise Advisory Council, made up of franchisees and senior staff, travels overseas at least
twice each year to visit manufacturers, identify new products and meet with prospective new
suppliers to ensure the company remains an industry leader. Last month, the group jetted to China,
Vietnam and Malaysia.
“Bedshed’s franchisee partners are encouraged to join us on our overseas buying trips, giving them
an opportunity to help select products and forge closer relationships with their counterparts around
the country,” said Bedshed’s Chief Operating Officer, Gavin Culmsee.
“During our most recent trip, we attended the Shanghai International Furniture Show, the largest
furniture trade show in Asia.  Drawing together exhibitors from across Asia and Europe, the show
has a very contemporary edge which marries well with the type of products most of interest to
Bedshed customers,” he said.
With a tighter network of fellow franchisees and an improved knowledge of what the international
market has to offer, Bedshed’s franchisees are well equipped to lead their businesses to success.
