"It is about helping young companies, who have taken their first steps, to move on to the next level of the consumer goods business. Trade fairs are mediators and matchmakers – so what could be more helpful than an international platform that’s a date not to be missed for all key players?” says Ambiente’s vice president, Nicolette Naumann.

The Next promotional programme was established by Messe Frankfurt in 2008, and is directed at companies who have already gained their first experiences and want to establish themselves in the consumer goods sector.
