The article criticizes the lack of participation of British exhibitors at the Brussels Furniture Fair in Belgium. The author believes that the overseas market is a potential target for British furniture manufacturers, however, they do not give proper attention to it. The reason, according to the Export Culture report for the Furniture Industry Strategy Group, is the lack of defined strategy of the manufacturers. As a result, overseas buyers, who are interested to buy British furniture, are hindered by a lack of awareness of new products and of British-made products in general.
