For funeral directors and suppliers to the profession, the National Funeral Exhibition is a must-visit date in the calendar.

Held every two years, the event is one of the top three global exhibitions for the funeral sector and attracts trade visitors and exhibitors from across the world.

The 2017 event is once again being held at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire and takes place from 9 to 11 June.

The event will plays host to 200 exhibitors across a wide range of sectors, including vehicle fleets, coffins and caskets, professional equipment suppliers, printing and stationery companies, online memorial services, charities and a range of business advisory firms to support funeral directors with their business needs.

In addition, a packed seminar programme across the three days of the show will include presentations on supporting blind and partially sighted bereaved people, caring for families after the loss of a child, the advanced driving skills necessary for funeral fleets and the role social media can play in helping funeral directors to connect with their local communities.

The show has become known for its innovative themed concepts and the theme of the event in 2017 is music, which organisers believe is apt – following the number of music legends who died last year, including David Bowie.

There are limited places left for exhibitors, Hall One and Two are almost full, with a handful of stands left available – for more information contact Kirsti Tomkinson on 0121 711 1343 ext. 1009 or email her at:
