The global industry is once again meeting for a face-to-face exchange at interzum 2023 May 9-12, in Cologne to develop trends, find inspiration and design the living spaces of tomorrow. With its new claim of “shaping the change”, interzum emphasizes its function as the provider of impulses for the industry, with the goal of redesigning the future together.
In the future, it will become imperative for companies to balance economic success with social responsibility. Climate protection and sustainable action in the manufacture of innovative products are of central importance to consumers. With this way of thinking, interzum is embarking on a new path by transforming from a content mover into a thought leader.
In this sense, the defining and guiding principle of interzum 2023 will be “new ecology”, because climate change is not going to disappear from the global consciousness and we are reminded of this almost daily through examples of droughts, periods of extreme heat and storms. Global societal movements like Fridays for Future are making sustainable action the foundation of a new identity. Sustainability is a growing economic factor. Themes like conserving resources, smart materials, renewable energies and upcycling are already trending. The trade fair will offer exhibitors and visitors of the community an opportunity to discuss these themes and develop solutions together.
Even though interzum is redefining its lead claim, the focus will also still remain on global business under changed basic conditions. This is evidenced through a unique and diverse exhibitor pool, extending from Hettich, Häfele, Blum and Vauth-Sagel through Schattdecor, Impress, Egger, Finsa, Kastamonu, Leggett & Platt / Global Systems Group and Atlanta Attachment to Dürkopp Adler and others.
Additionally, interzum is not only developing its presence format further, but is also re-conceptualizing the trade fair digitally. In this context, interzum @home 2021 should also serve as a successful case for the further development of the digital formats. interzum 2023 will thus adopt a hybrid event format.
