A selected group of Bedshed franchisees and executives has travelled to Vietnam and Malaysia to build relationships with potential international suppliers.

Gavin Culmsee, chief operating officer at Bedshed, said "We visit international suppliers and trade shows twice-annually and our team is always looking for the best partners to supply the highest quality bedding and bedroom furniture products to our national network of stores."

Russell Fudge has operated Bedshed stores for 10 years and was one of three franchisees from Western Australia and Melbourne to join the group.

"The visit was important in terms of giving potential suppliers some direction in product development, ensuring they understand what products will best suit the Australian market and local consumer tastes," he said.
