Introduction

Materials & Finishes Show, formerly W Exhibition & Elements, is the UK's trade show for the furniture manufacturing and joinery industries.

The event builds on the success of the W Exhibition which, since its conception in 1974, has passed from being a woodworking machinery exhibition to covering the full range of technology and materials for industrial woodworking.  Materials & Finishes Show provides a platform for manufacturers, processors and installers of timber and associated materials. 

Visitors can expect to see all areas of the material journey, from the initial stages of raw processing through to finishing and component supply for completed products, at Materials & Finishes Show. The exhibition will run at the NEC from 19 - 22 May, 2024 and is the reimagined concept for W Exhibition, developed by Montgomery Group.
