ZOW 2020: tips for visitors
ZOW 2020: Special event area "[Tiny] Spaces: From Square Meters to Shared Meters"
The supplier fair for the furniture and interior design industry ZOW will take place in Bad Salzuflen from 4 to 6 February 2020. Here are some some tips and suggestions for your visit.
ZOW 2020 is a communication platform for product presentations for the coming order season, but also acts as a forum for thinking ahead for future years. Similar to a craft workshop or a prototyping lab, it offers customers and developers the time and space to discuss exploring new paths or to forge bold ideas in rough form. Here you can get an initial overview of the innovations and further developments at this years ZOW.
Craft workshop, studio and marketplace
Well timed for the industry’s sample cycle, the supplier trade fair with the feel of a workshop is hosted approximately halfway between the 2019 and 2021 editions of the industry’s leading international trade fair, interzum. It therefore provides enough time and scope for the first sparks of ideas for new implementations, for further product developments and company-specific adaptations of standard market solutions. In addition to being a craft workshop, studio and marketplace, ZOW will once again be one thing above all else: a forum for in-depth communication and active networking for all successful participants in the furniture value creation process.

Curated special show
Urbanisation and gentrification are processes that have an immediate impact on social structures, communal living and, not least, domestic life. This has direct consequences for urban planners and architects – not forgetting the interior design sector. At ZOW 2020 designer and trend scout Katrin de Louw will be presenting three layouts in a special exhibition area intended to provide lasting inspiration for increasingly sought-after tiny and shared spaces. At the special event area [Tiny] Spaces: From Square Meters to Shared Meters , ZOW will inspire new ideas among visitors from the worlds of industry, skilled trades, design and interiors and give rise to new product and service development concepts.
