Imm Cologne: A dynamic start to the furniture year

Imm Cologne ended on Sunday, 21 January 2018, with very positive results.

In total, around 125,000 visitors attended the event to find out about industry trends and new launches. With this figure, Imm Cologne achieved a slight increase in visitors compared to the similar event in 2016.

Imm Cologne’s international reach is not only increasing among exhibitors. The interiors show also attracted growing numbers of international visitors. The proportion of foreign visitors rose to around 50 per cent (2016: 46 per cent) on the trade visitor days.

Specialist retailers and high-profile international visitors from the furnishings trade and interior design business were recorded as visitors, with many of them coming from the global top 30 chains. They were joined at imm cologne by decision-makers from the major online platforms and international department stores, including Alinéa from France, John Lewis from the United Kingdom, Lars Larsen from Denmark, El Corte Inglés from Spain, Nitori from Japan and Ashley from the USA.
