Excellent start for LivingKitchen 2015, with more than 130 registrations already received and further internationalisation
In 2015, the international kitchen event, Living Kitchen, will return to Cologne for the third time, taking place in parallel with imm cologne. Project manager Eike Fuchs can already guarantee a top-notch industry event: over 130 registrations have already been received, among them confirmations from well-known market leaders like Alno, Blanco, the BSH group, Franke, Häcker, Lechner, Miele, nobilia and Schüller. Led by project manager Eike Fuchs, the LivingKitchen team is looking toward 2015 optimistically. On 19 January, the trade fair duo – imm cologne and LivingKitchen – opens its doors in Cologne. “We already have very good registration figures, with over 130 confirmations currently from over 18 countries. Our goal is to attract 180 national and international exhibitors to the three halls 4.1, 4.2 and 5.2.“ Among those companies taking part are internationally successful market leaders. In the furniture sector, we are happy to announce the participation of allmilmö, Alno, bau-for-mat/Burger, Häcker, nobilia, Schüller, Warendorf and zeyko. The A-30 group alone will be represented by eight manufacturers in total. The e-device-manufacturers include BSH Group with Siemens, Bosch, Gaggenau, Neff and Constructa as well as Gorenje, Küppersbusch, Liebherr, Miele, Panasonic and V-Zug. The accessories sector is represented by Blanco, Duravit, Franke, Grohe, Lechner, Schock, systemceram, Villeroy & Boch and Wesco, among others. Koelnmesse is expecting many more world market leaders from home and abroad to confirm by May at the latest. Over 80% of the confirmed exhibitors for the 2015 event also took part in the last LivingKitchen in 2013. Eike Fuchs is particularly interested in feedback from these exhibitors. “Many exhibitors have told me that LivingKitchen combines the elements of sustainable business and design-orientated trend show perfectly and that participating in the 2015 event is extremely important for them.“ The goal of LivingKitchen 2015 is a 20% increase in trade visitors from abroad, in particular from Europe, China, Russia and the USA. In order to reach the relevant trade visitors within these respective markets, the LivingKitchen team will be stepping up their presence at bigger trade fairs in these countries, organising interviews with the relevant trade press and having round table discussions. Koelnmesse is to maintain the successful concept of LivingKitchen for the third time. The international LivingKitchen event takes place in parallel with imm cologne, presenting in one trade-fair format kitchen furniture, kitchen devices, sinks, fittings and accessories. The product show will be complemented by numerous events on the “Cooktainment“ stage and at the exhibitors‘ fair stands.
