With top exhibitors, a focus on trade visitors and a shortened duration, imm cologne, Germany’s biggest interior trade fair is set to become “a highly efficient” business event when it returns to Koelnmesse for a special Spring Edition from 4-7th June this year …
This summer, the global furniture industry is invited to come together at imm’s Spring Edition in Cologne. In addition to its role as a networking event for the interior design and furniture-buying world, and a source of inspiration, the event sees itself as a platform for unique business opportunities. Leading brand manufacturers will be present, while a top-class event programme promises to offer plentiful networking opportunities.
“The imm Spring Edition will be a one-off event, and marks the start of a newly conceived imm cologne,” states organiser Koelnmesse.Across three themed segments – Home Sleep, Home Settings and Home Scenes – the fair promises a wide range of business opportunities. Home Sleep will present innovative sleep products, Home Scenes is set to reflect the furnishing trends for upmarket living comfort, and Home Settings will cater for younger audiences and those seeking attractive prices.
On the exhibitor side, Furninova, Hjört Knudsen, Koinor, Nouvion, Voglauer and Wimmer are among those presenting new collections and innovations, while the compact, open stands within the Interior Platforms format promises to further open the doors to interested buyers.
Meanwhile, the Pure Galleries exhibition concept will premiere at imm Spring Edition, and promises to transport trade visitors into an art gallery-style setting. In minimalist, customisable brand rooms, leading companies such as Artisan, brühl & sippold, BW Bielefelder Werkstätten, Christine Kröncke, COR Sitzmöbel, ex.T Giulio Tanini, Freifrau, JANUA, Jori, Kettnaker, KFF, KLÖBER, Label, Leolux, Montis, miinu, müller möbelfabrikation, raumplus, Rodam, Scholtissek, Schönbuch, Signet and WERTHER will present their latest interior design solutions.
The imm Spring Edition will also be eminently international, with participants from China, Taiwan, Romania, Ukraine, Indonesia, Latvia, Turkey, Kosovo, and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
