IMM Cologne 2012 – It Was Fun Again!
>> 115,000 visitors from 118 countries <<
For us the exhibition year started in January with the international furniture exhibition in Cologne, or: imm cologne 2012. The ”aesthetic” and ”design oriented” exhibition was a challenge for our staff and logistics. However, at the same time, it was an absolute highlight for our planners and light designers. Because where alse, if not at such an occasion, can one put so many pretty things into the perfect light?
And again we had fun at the imm cologne and arranged for suitable technology concepts and brilliant light effects. Among other things we illuminated the exhibits of the [D3] Contest within the context of [D3] Design talents. We have realized a balanced alternation of light and shade in Doshi Leviens concept of the perfect house "Das Haus" within the special area "Pure Village". And in addition we have technically supervised more than 100 further exhibition stands and exhibition areas.
On the right you see some of our references. For further information on imm/LivingInterior please send an e-mail to our technical director Michael Schumacher or authorized signatory Michael Grundmann.
About imm cologne 2012:
On 22nd January 2012, the imm cologne and LivingInteriors drew to a close in Cologne with a very good result. For seven days, 1,157 companies from 54 countries showed the interior design trends of the coming year. Including estimates for the last day of the show, the trade fair duo lured 115,000 visitors to Cologne. "Cologne is the key business platform for the global furniture economy - as this trade fair has once again impressively demonstrated," sums up Gerald Böse, CEO of Koelnmesse. "This year we were bang on course. We had more exhibitors, were more international - the Italian contingent was stronger than it had been for a long time - and visitors got to see lots of genuinely new products.
All in all, a result like this means we are again playing at the very top of the furniture sector's premier league," continues Böse. With his statement "This year's furniture fair exceeded our expectations yet again," Dirk Uwe Klaas, Chief Executive of the Association of the German Furniture Industry (Verband der Deutschen Möbelindustrie), came to a similar conclusion. "With this kind of momentum, 2012 may well be a very good year for furniture- and as far as Germany is concerned, our furniture industry may well become the engine that drives consumption," adds the Chief Executive.
