interzum shows the future for furniture production and interior design
With interzum the future is starting again for furniture production and interior design on 9 May 2023 in Cologne. No other industry event in the world provides impulses for the global furniture supplier industry in such a needs and future-oriented fashion. Decision makers, opinion leaders, multipliers and trendsetters from all over the world keep up with the innovations in the sector, seek out and find new and inspiring ideas and meet valuable established and new contacts.
Innovative power of the supplier industry
interzum is an opportunity for the global supplier industry to reveal all its innovative power every two years. After interzum 2019 inspired more than 70,000 trade visitors and 1,800 exhibitors from around the world, the companies are again looking forward to the next live experience in May 2023 . "There is an almost longing anticipation for a personal reunion in Cologne", says Maik Fischer, Director of interzum. "We can sense in the many discussions we are currently having that visitors and exhibitors are already longing for the upcoming event as their leading international trade fair for allowing them to present their innovations live on location, to exchange ideas about these, to be able to take the products in their hands and especially to finally meet once again in person."

Trend forums present new inspirations
Considered from a global perspective, the requirements of living and work worlds are changing. interzum consciously responds to these themes and incorporates them into an inspiring event programme. In three theme-related trend forums, interzum presents inspirations in the context of central trends of the furniture and interior design industries. Thus, for example, the forum on Materials & Nature is dedicated to innovative and pioneering materials and production technologies, while the forum on the theme of Textile & Machinery presents the most important trends and innovations in mattress production and the related circular economy.

Visionary lectures: interzum Academy
The knowledge transfer for visitors and exhibitors will be supplemented with a new format, the interzum Academy: here, interzum will present a high quality and visionary lecture programme that is supplemented by exhibitor lectures with a pronounced ready-to-market focus – and the whole thing will take place in a hybrid form, thus both in Cologne at the physical trade fair and in the digital realm.
interzum @home 2021 laid the foundation not least for the interzum Academy and demonstrated impressively how creatively and flexibly the furniture supplier industry is dealing with the challenges of our time, and how they are enthusiastically grasping opportunities and using them to their advantage. With the experiences of interzum @home 2021, the continuing development of interzum into a full-fledged, hybrid event approach is being pursued hand-in-hand with the exhibiting and visiting industry. The familiar exceptional standard of the physical presentation in Cologne will be complemented by attractive digital offerings – to create a trade fair experience that is unique in every respect.
