Corporate membership benefits
Membership is awarded to the company and once obtained remains with the company on payment of the annual fees. During the joining process, you will be asked to assign three corporate liverymen. These delegates will be your company’s key representatives at The Furniture Makers’ Company.
Develop your network
We have a full calendar of social events, business orientated seminars and activities that provide members the opportunity to meet, get fresh perspectives, widen their knowledge and help them to develop professionally and personally.
Corporate members also get invited to attend an annual lunch at the Houses of Parliament, offering the opportunity to influence policy and share thoughts on the industry, and our biannual best practice days offer members the chance to learn from each other.
Raise your profile
City of London livery companies are long standing, respected institutions and membership brings kudos and regard, elevating you and your business’ brand image. Membership also provides superb PR opportunities for companies to shout about.
We’ll spread the word of your support through our PR. You’ll get social media coverage through Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter. Your logo will be included in our yearbook, on our website and in Furniture Makers’ Hall.
Give something back
As the charity for the furnishing industry, we offer members the opportunity to make a positive impact on the industry and fulfil corporate social responsibility objectives, by supporting our charitable activities. You can also collaborate with other members through rewarding committee work that support our many initiatives in the areas of education, excellence and welfare.
Fun and fellowship
The livery offers the opportunity to socialise on a regular basis and nurture lifelong friendships and invaluable business relationships.
Get access to exclusive events
We organise a wide variety of formal and informal events during the year, providing members the opportunity to meet, dine and share unforgettable experiences in some of the City of London’s historic and magnificent venues, including the annual dinner at the Mansion House celebrating the installation of the new Master.
Corporate members receive three complimentary tickets to either the Installation Dinner or our Royal Charter Dinner.
Use of Furniture Makers’ Hall
Tucked away between Liverpool St, Moorgate and Bank underground stations is the heart and home of the Furniture Makers: Furniture Makers’ Hall. The stunning venue has three dedicated spaces with state-of-the-art audio-visual facilities that cater for business meetings to grand dinners.
Corporate members are entitled to one day’s free use of the hall per year for organising their own meetings or events. We also offer preferential room hire and catering package rates.
