imm cologne to return to traditional timeline

imm cologne will take place in January 2024 over five days from Sunday, 14th January, to Thursday, 18th January, at Koelnmesse’s trade fair grounds in Cologne.

After the enforced break due to the pandemic, and the imm Spring Edition set to take place this June, Germany’s biggest interior trade fair will return to its established January dates from 2024 onwards.

Organiser Koelnmesse says it will continue the journey towards a redefined imm cologne that it has embarked upon with the spring event: "Like the special event in June 2023, imm cologne 2024 is designed for effective business with amended dates and a focus on trade visitors".

Koelnmesse CEO Gerald Böse says: “In close consultation with the industry and the associations involved in the event, we’re delighted to be able to announce that imm cologne will return to its usual January dates from 2024. The start of the year always has a unique dynamic, which makes it the perfect time for the industry and the retail and wholesale trade to gather and design tomorrow’s living spaces together.”

The view is shared by Elmar Duffner, president of Germany's VDM trade association, who says: “We welcome this early decision on imm cologne’s future dates. The announcement will make planning easier for our manufacturers. There is strong support in the industry for an imm cologne in January – the event has been a firm fixture on the calendar for decades.”
