International interiors showcase imm cologne will return from 17th-23rd January 2022, giving attendees the opportunity to see the major brands and creators with their own eyes, meet business partners, and prepare for the business of the future. 

In January 2022, imm cologne will be the interiors industry's first significant in-person event to open its doors since the outbreak of the pandemic – giving the trade the chance to finally see collections first-hand again, discover the issues of tomorrow and lay the foundations for the business of the future.

Time for an exchange

The event’s motto, 'Time for an exchange', conveys the essentials, says the fair's organiser, Koelnmesse: "It’s time to meet again and exchange ideas – and to create something new that still feels like imm cologne. The format we have developed combines the trade fair with digital ideas, and brings them together to create a unique concept."

The trade fair’s centrepiece will continue to be the in-person event at the start of the year – nothing will replace meeting face to face and experiencing fresh developmnets first-hand, says Koelnmesse, which expects to host some 600 exhibitors, with 74% attending from outside Germany, making imm cologne the biggest interior design trade fair in Europe since the coronavirus crisis hit.

"The international industry gathering will naturally not only present fresh creative innovations and the latest ideas from the world of interior design," Koelnmesse continues. "Cologne is also the place where the major brands and designers showcase their visions of tomorrow – together with trade fair visitors, they will set the stage for the key interior trends for the coming months."

Extending far beyond the trade fair

Another new aspect of the event is imm cologne 365. This combination – of the ambista business network, and 'the magazine by imm cologne' content platform – is unique in the industry, and offers interior professionals business and networking opportunities, and a forum for exchanging ideas that goes far beyond the trade fair, and is now available 365 days a year.
