Interzum to focus on ‘Shaping the change’

Interzum (9-12 May 2023) will once again launch with fresh momentum and a new slogan: ‘Shaping the change’. What this means in practice is that the event will place even greater emphasis on key issues of the future – sustainability, climate protection and resource efficiency – in order to drive forward the conversation about these matters.

After the digital Interzum@home edition in 2021, the industry event will finally take place again as a live experience in Cologne’s exhibition halls in Germany this year.

With “neo-ecology” as the overarching central theme, the leading international trade fair for furniture production and interior design is establishing a new focus and drawing attention to its future-oriented innovative strength.

Changes in our living and working environments have arguably rarely been felt as keenly as they are today. The coronavirus pandemic and its consequences, climate change and rising energy prices are presenting us with enormous challenges.

Megatrends such as increasing digitalisation and individualisation and, in particular, the growing need for greater sustainability are also influencing the way we live and work.

Koelnmesse, the organiser of Interzum, expects approximately 1,400 companies from around 60 countries to present their ground-breaking new products, technical innovations and revolutionary material solutions to a global audience at the industry event.

Decision makers, opinion leaders, influencers and trendsetters from all over the world will gather in person to discover innovations and new products, seek inspiration, and meet both established and new business contacts.

It is here that the supplier industry demonstrates the full scope of its capacity for innovation and in doing so plays a decisive and proactive role in shaping the change.

Sustainability slogan

By placing an even greater emphasis on sustainable practices and discussing the issues, Interzum will continue to drive the conversation forward so that new solutions can be developed together.

In keeping with its slogan, ‘Shaping the change. Go create conscious living spaces’, Interzum invites participants and visitors to find new answers to current and future design questions.

In order to present brand-new solutions to an international audience, the upcoming Interzum will combine the benefits of a traditional in-person trade fair with those of a digital event. Interzum@home in 2021 was successful in laying the foundation for this approach.

In 2023, international exhibitors and experts will shine a light on the trade fair’s familiar themed segments, both on-site in Cologne and in the digital space. Themed special events – the Interzum Trend Forums – will highlight the creativity and flexibility of the furniture supplier industry in responding to the challenges of our time.

The latest furniture and interior design sector topics will be presented to an international trade audience with reference to key trends. With the Product Stage and the Trend Stage, Interzum offers additional opportunities for exhibitor and product presentations as well as a platform for addressing market-specific and design-related issues of the future.
