Trade show marathon in January

The end of the year can be a turbulent time for some industries as they prepare for the first important trade shows of the year to begin in January. Here’s a brief overview to help you plan for the start of 2020: right at the start of the year, from 7 to 10 January 2020, the trade show Heimtextil is set to take place once again in Frankfurt. This is the event’s 50th edition, so celebration is more than in order. For the occasion, the trade show will present a special exhibition looking back on the last 50 years of design within the context of each era. The event will also showcase the latest trends of 2020, alongside a programme packed with special topics and events which will offer guests and exhibitors the opportunity to talk and exchange ideas, as well as providing information on issues such as sustainability, innovation and technology. 
Then, from 10 to 13 January, Domotex, an important event for architects, interior designers and designers, will open its doors to visitors in Hanover. This trade show will showcase the entire world of floor coverings, the latest exhibitor products, and will also feature a long list of special events on topics such as acoustics, sustainability, interior atmosphere and quality of life. 
Right after this, the year’s first major furniture and furnishing trade show, imm cologne, is set to get under way in Cologne from 13 to 19 January. Here too visitors can expect to see many new products as well as an extensive supporting programme with special exhibitions, presentations, talks and, lest we forget, Passagen, a diverse offering of exhibitions, installations and events in the city of Cologne, which runs during the imm.
Finally, in Paris from 17 to 21 January, we have Maison&Objet, which, under its 2020 theme “(Re)Generation!”, will focus on the shifting habits of young consumers.
