imm cologne returns this June after two year absence

Imm cologne is set to return this spring from June 4-7 at the Koelnmesse fairgrounds in Cologne, after a two-year hiatus. According to the organization, the traditional January dates were moved to June likely benefiting from safer health conditions and energy security during the spring dates.

Inspired by the ART COLOGNE stand construction concept

The show days for next year’s edition have been reduced from six to four days and admission is limited to the B2B community consisting of furnishing retailers, interior designers, architects, planners, carpenters, interior decorators and dealers.

Segmented by price points, imm cologne will showcase lines for Living Rooms, Bed Rooms, Bathrooms, Mattresses, Home Textiles, Wall Coverings, Lighting, Accessories and Kitchen areas displayed in 10 halls of the Koelnmesse Fairgrounds.

Held annually, imm cologne will offer a platform for global furniture manufacturers and designers to reunite with the international furniture trade and design community. The last event in 2019 combined 129,000 attendees from 139 countries with 1,233 exhibitors from 53 countries. 

A recent study conducted by the German consulting company Conneum in partnership with Modenus Media concluded that US buyers have a growing appetite for high end furniture “Made in Germany” as imports from Germany have increased by 26 per cent from 2021 to 2022. 

This trend is fueled by a surging dollar and increased US demand for more modern and minimalist furniture lines which can be viewed in Cologne next June. North American travelers to imm cologne are encouraged to connect a show visit with some extra sight seeing and travelling in Germany in June known for providing long daylight hours and mild temperatures.     

In 2024 imm cologne will revert to the traditional January dates again: January 14-18, 2024.
