interzum provides answers to the questions of the future
interzum is the gathering place for the international furniture and interior design industry. The trade fair presents the entire spectrum of the global market like no other sector event. This gives exhibitors and trade visitors a unique opportunity to gain a comprehensive overview of the industry’s most important innovations and trends – at a single event.
Megatrends such as the advance of digitalisation, ever-greater individualisation and the desire for greater sustainability are influencing the furniture industry and its products. Innovations in interior design must be more environmentally friendly, more connected and more individualised. interzum consciously responds to these issues by incorporating them into an inspiring event programme.
“We connect the creators of tomorrow’s living spaces and actively provide stimulus for the developments that will shape the future,” says Matthias Pollmann. Three themed trend forums at interzum will present inspiration in the context of key new directions in the furniture and interiors industry. They include the Materials & Nature forum, which is dedicated to innovative materials and pioneering production technology, while the Textile & Machinery forum presents the most important trends and innovations in mattress production and related issues concerning the circular economy. A newly developed format will offer visitors and exhibitors even more opportunities for knowledge transfer – with the interzum Academy, the trade fair is presenting a high- quality and visionary lecture programme, supplemented by market-oriented contributions from exhibitors. The interzum Academy will be staged as a hybrid event, meaning it will be hosted both in person in Cologne and digitally.
Hosted at the trade fair grounds in Cologne/Germany, the international trade fair interzum is an established, central industry gathering that showcases the latest trends and innovations from global suppliers to the furniture industry. In addition to the event at its Cologne headquarters, Koelnmesse is strategically expanding its portfolio with international trade fairs in key growth markets around the globe, including interzum bogotá in Colombia and interzum guangzhou in China. ZOW offers a further ideal industry platform with its ready-to- market approach.
The in-person events are complemented by Ambista, the online business network for the international interiors industry, which provides direct anywhere, anytime access to relevant products, contacts, expertise and events.
