12-16 Jan 2025 • imm cologne

Following a positive response to imm cologne in January 2024, preparations are already in full swing for the next edition of the Interior Business Event, slated for 12 to 16 January 2025. Leveraging insights from this year’s event, organizers are honing tried-and-tested formats to craft an even more enriching and effective trade fair experience. The goal is to inspire exhibitors and trade visitors alike and foster a collaborative atmosphere.

With the “Connecting Communities” theme and the “The Circles” trade fair concept at its core, imm cologne 2024 was pivotal in promoting networking and dialogue within the furniture industry. The event attracted around 750 domestic and international exhibitors to Cologne, providing 42,000 trade visitors from 129 countries with invaluable opportunities to forge connections, strengthen business relationships, and discover a myriad of innovative interior design ideas. By reimagining its approach, imm cologne demonstrated keen awareness of the industry’s evolving needs, marking a successful step in the fair’s ongoing evolution.

“The positive feedback from the market clearly proves that imm cologne is still an important source of momentum for the sector. Especially in today’s challenging market conditions, it helps the industry to stimulate fresh interest both on the retail side and in the media,” Bernd Sanden, Director of imm cologne, highlighted. With a forward-looking mindset, the organizing team is energized to extend the fair’s success and jointly craft the future of the furniture industry.

New concepts and highlights at the 2025 edition

The 2025 edition of imm cologne is poised to unveil new hall concepts in the Pure, Home, and Sleep segments, promising an array of unexpected trade fair experiences. Special participation formats will offer tailored solutions for exhibitors.

Furthermore, the imm cologne Summit, developed in collaboration with key industry associations, will see further enhancements. This congress aims to showcase the diverse potentials within the interior design industry, a mission that received significant attention at this year’s imm cologne.

The Pure Talents Contest design competition, setting a new record with over 1,000 entries at the start of the year, is expected to be a standout feature once again in 2025.

With a focus on innovation and the ambition to push the boundaries of the possible, preparations for imm cologne 2025 are well underway. The early-booking phase for exhibitors is open until 30 April 2024, promising another year of compelling exhibits and industry advancements.
