Four months before the start of the event, hall space rental figures slightly exceed those of the last fair duo imm cologne and LivingInteriors. In total, 80 percent of the hall space is already rented out.
Arne Petersen, Vice President Trade Fair Management of Koelnmesse comments on the registration status: “With this result we are following on in the same fashion as with the last edition of imm cologne. The figures with regards to international participation are particularly satisfying. Here we are seeing double-digit growth. We believe that the current developments confirm the importance of imm cologne as a business event on an international scale. Anyone wanting to be successful with furniture simply cannot afford to ignore Germany and imm cologne, the biggest event in this market“, Petersen continues. LivingInteriors, the event for innovative bathroom and room concepts is also eagerly awaited.
