FEBRUARY 2024 RETAILOBSERVER.COM 9 The interior business event once again hosts an international industry gathering in Cologne U nder the banner of "Connecting Communities", interior professionals from across the world launched the new interior design year at imm cologne from 14 to 18 January 2024. With a shorter duration, a new hall layout and the innovative trade fair concept 'The Circles', the global trade event was set to be the crucial platform for networking and business that it has been in previous years. The anticipation for the trade fair is immense given the facts and figures already known about it: 750 exhibiting companies, including 640 from outside Germany and 110 from Germany, registered to showcase their products and services at the event. The size of the German contingent has increased compared to the imm Spring Edition in June 2023, rising by 28 per cent. With its three segments – Home, Sleep and Pure – and a diverse array of exhibitors, ranging from up-and-coming start-ups to established brands, the trade fair covers the full spectrum of the industry's offerings. PURE – INSPIRING DESIGN IN HIGH-END QUALITY In Pure, the exclusive high-end segment at imm cologne, leading premium brands were presenting their luxury products and innovative designs. The focus in this inspirational platform is on unusual yet practical ideas, on furniture produced in high- end quality, and above all on authentic design – behind every new product is the philosophy of the manufacturer. Appearing in this segment are major names such as Brühl & Sippold, Bretz, COR, Gandia Blasco, JANUA/Freifrau, Leolux, Rolf Benz, Schramm, Team7 and Walter Knoll. IMM COLOGNE CONNECTS!
