The next edition of imm cologne 2025, is scheduled to take place from 12 to 16 January 2025

12 June 2024

With its new central theme of “Connecting Communities” and the associated trade fair concept “The Circles”, this year’s imm cologne focused on promoting networking and dialogue within the furniture industry. The interior design event attracted around 750 domestic and international exhibitors to Cologne and gave 42,000 trade visitors from 129 countries the opportunity to make valuable contacts, deepen business relationships and draw inspiration from a wide range of creative interior design ideas.

With its revised approach, the trade fair demonstrated a real awareness of current industry needs and marked a successful milestone in the ongoing development of imm cologne. In the face of a constantly changing market situation in which the interiors industry is looking for innovative sources of inspiration, imm cologne once again positioned itself at the beginning of the year as the ideal platform for satisfying these demands. “The positive feedback from the market clearly proves that imm cologne is still an important source of momentum for the sector. Especially in today’s challenging market conditions, it helps the industry to stimulate fresh interest both on the retail side and in the media,” emphasises Bernd Sanden, Director of imm cologne. “With this in mind, we are pushing ahead with our plans with even more energy and anticipation in order to continue our success and shape the future of the furniture industry together.


New concepts and highlights at the 2025 edition

A decisive factor in the positive feedback from the 2024 event was the trade fair concept “The Circles”, which brought the underlying message of the central theme to life with interconnecting content and event areas. The diverse Circles featured inspiring design installations, welcoming hospitality zones and studios hosting future-focused presentations. They transformed imm cologne into an interactive platform where trade fair participants could meet, network and discuss important industry topics.

Given the positive response, there are plans to intensify the intra-industry dialogue in the coming year. In 2025, new hall concepts in the Pure, Home and Sleep segments promise to deliver surprising trade fair experiences for all participants. Exhibitors will also benefit from special participation formats designed to provide customised solutions. In addition to the overarching trade fair concept, the imm cologne Summit is also being further developed. Organised in cooperation with the Association of the German Furniture Industry (VDM) and the Federal Association of the German Federal Association of Furniture & Kitchen Retailers (BVDM), the congress highlighted the diverse potential of the interior design industry at this year’s imm cologne.

The Pure Talents Contest design competition, which set a new record at the beginning of the year with over 1,000 entries, will be a particular highlight for participants once again in 2025. With a refreshing forward-looking perspective and the resolute goal of stretching the boundaries of possibility, preparations for imm cologne 2025 are already well underway.
