More than 150,000 visitors from all over the world, over 200 exhibitors from 21 countries – LivingKitchen is already the biggest and most international kitchen event in the world. The Koelnmesse does not rest on these laurels, but is revolutionising the trade fair format for LivingKitchen 2019. The focus is the ‘LivingKitchen Vision2035’, the staging of a futuristic kitchen that is unique around the world. With it, the Koelnmesse beams exhibitors and visitors more than 10 years into the future. Those who want to experience tomorrow’s kitchen close up and be part of it, have to travel to Cologne in January 2019.
Koelnmesse has created a unique format for the fifth edition of the LivingKitchen in 2019: The centrepiece here is the ‘LivingKitchen Vision2035’ – a visible and perceptible kitchen in which visitors can experience the cabinets, technologies and linkages of tomorrow. With its vision, Koelnmesse together with exhibitors and visitors will shape the digital kitchen and actively participate in its design. In cooperation with selected industry experts, a futuristic concept will be exhibited that allows visitors a look at the possibilities of tomorrow’s kitchen world, and at the same time invites them to discuss their thoughts, ideas and requests relating to the kitchen of the future.
Gerald Böse, Chairman of the Board of Koelnmesse, says, “The LivingKitchen is the biggest kitchen event in the world with an impressive development. With ‘LivingKitchen Vision2035’ we’ll revolutionise the already highly successful trade fair format and at the same time refine our profile – kitchen and Koelnmesse are a recognisable unit. Thus we’re creating an additional visitor magnet which will draw the global media landscape to Cologne even more strongly. This will benefit our exhibitors who will define the future of the kitchen with us in January 2019.”
During the imm cologne 2018 from January 15 to 21, the new concept with all its details and additional features will be introduced to exhibitors, all interested parties as well as representatives from international media.
