The CFAS Winter Journal: Coming January 2021

Despite the current national lockdown, there are plenty of things to be positive about as we head into winter.

We have been very pleased to hear in recent weeks that confidence within our industry is slowly recovering. We are confident this recovery will continue through 2021 and the end of the Brexit transition period.

With this in mind, CFAS has taken the decision to revert to our printed journals. We will however be continuing with our electronic edition after positive feedback from members and non-members across the board.

The 2021 CFAS Winter Journal

If there was any doubt, we now know that working from home is here to stay. With this in mind, our main theme for the winter edition of our Journal will be Essential Products for Home Working. We know that this paradigm shift is being reflected in the modus operandi of our members, and look forward to hearing about the changes they’ve made.

Secure your space in our Winter Journal by emailing alan@cfas.uk. The deadline for entries is 18th December 2020. We are also looking for some interesting generic tutorials that will be placed free of charge – see below or click here for more details.

Ease your Brexit transition with CFAS

In the CFAS Winter Journal we will be answering some of the questions you may have about how Brexit will affect our industry. You can expect articles on the following:

  • How transport is important to manufacturers and dealers.
  • How have the changes from 1st January affected the furniture industry for imports/exports
  • What is the long term prediction on transport costs – overall due to time costs they need to include in their overheads.
  • Manufacturers changing product configuration for easier transport/packaging
  • What our members offer, their opinions and predictions

We’ll also be sending out our 2021 Journal Calendar. This will outline all themes for 2021, hopefully including Clerkenwell Design Week! Members can expect their copy of the CFAS 2021 Winter Journal in late January.

Call for generic editorials

If you are planning to take out a paid advert (quarter, half, or full page), we invite you to also submit an interesting and informative generic editorial on a subject of your choice. This will be placed free of charge for those who have taken out a paid advert, and is the perfect way to help rebuild your brand recognition by increasing your presence in our next Journal.
