Among the exhibitors are FSW Wood Floors, BSL Hardwood Floors, V4 Woodflooring and YTD, the Chinese-owned solid wood flooring company.

A spokesman for the show said: “Carpet took a downturn when laminates became popular, but when consumers became bored, the rising acceptance of soft flooring coincided with positive impressions of real wood due to a new similarity in price. Flooring is constantly evolving, and with lifestyles and climates changing, the need for choice is high.”

The show is on February 20 and 21 and also features a programme of seminars.
