In 8 months from now the global community for furniture supply, interior construction, architects, interior designers, and developers, will find new inspiration by visiting Interzum, the world’s leading industry event for furniture production. This show, which will celebrate its 60th anniversary, takes place every other year in Cologne, Germany. Show dates are May 21 -24, 2019.

Travelling to Cologne during Interzum will provide a sneak peek into the global future of  interior living spaces and the use of the latest materials, designs and innovations. This event is unique by not only connecting regional markets, but also by driving internationalization in the areas of furniture production and interior fittings.

The trade show will be accompanied by a comprehensive conference program including awards for best and most innovative designs.

The main Interzum segments will consist of “Materials & Nature,” “Function & Components” and “Textile & Machinery” allowing visitors a targeted and efficient search by hall when sourcing for products.

Matthias Pollmann, Vice President Trade Fair Management said: ”We are excited about the upcoming Interzum as we project to host a record setting 1,800 exhibitors from all over the world. The early booking phase shows that we are well on course to achieve 5% growth in our exhibitor base making it the leading international industry event and the place-to-be for the furniture supply industry.”  

Alongside the industry’s big names, plenty of smaller, highly innovative companies will also be participating again at its 2019 edition.  Currently, around 13 % of the companies registered so far will be attending interzum for the first time.  Main topics at Interzum will include resource conservation, sustainability, living in a small space and the trend towards digitalization in the production process.  

The last Interzum in 2017 was attended by 69,000 attendees from 152 countries, among them were hundreds of North American buyers who regularly attend this show. Interzum will cooperate with Ligna, Hannover again which will take place from May 27-31, 2019, just 3 days after the conclusion of Interzum. Attendee passes purchased for either event will grant access to both shows.

The event also offers a VIP buyer program for qualified buyers which includes free use of the VIP Lounge (free food/beverages/wifi), complimentary show admission, multi-lingual VIP management services, free show catalog, tours, exclusive buyer activities and more.

Delegations or groups of 10+ visitors from North America will enjoy assistance with travel arrangements, bilingual support, registration, free admission as well as access to a welcome reception and show tour.
