The Interior Business Event of imm cologne will be postponed to June 2023, in light of the need for face-to-face interactions and an in-person trade exhibition, especially after a two-year break.
“The imm cologne advisory board gave the concept proposed by Koelnmesse for the imm spring edition in June 2023 the green light unanimously,” said Gerald Böse, CEO of Koelnmesse. “This concept will ensure that imm cologne can take place again after a two-year break.
“I firmly believe in face-to-face exchanges. In my view, they are immensely important for the industry’s development, especially in challenging times. The sector needs an in-person platform in Germany, an event with international appeal and a strong communication reach like imm cologne.”
The imm cologne team has shared their new visions regarding the changes of the schedule. The new story for imm cologne will unfold in two steps. The first step will be the imm spring edition from 4 to 7 June 2023. Oliver Frese, Operating Officer of Koelnmess has stated that this opportunity has given their partners a planning time and opportunity for ensuring better trading.
The new concept ideas are majorly revolving around the consultation importance and face to face interaction possibilities. It is also necessary to incorporate the city as close of the city event location as possible.
Koelnmesse is a very popular top trade fair organizer in the fields of interiors, furnishings, design, home living, garden lifestyle and modern work environments. Besides, conducting events at Cologne headquarters, koelnmesse is expanding their portfolio internationally. The inaugural ORGATEC TOKYO has been hosted in 2022. The in-person events are becoming even more predominant in the post pandemic era. The change of dates is a gesture the event planners are taking for adapting in the market.
