by | Feb 17, 2017 | Community, News | 0 comments


International order platform set to take off with seasonal decorations, home textiles and outdoor living.

The most international order platform in the second half of the year will appear in a new light from 24? to 27?June 2017. Tendence will not only be in pole position ahead of all other autumn order fairs but also be characterised by additional product groups and lots of new products revolving around the worlds of furnishing, living and giving for Europe?s buyers. At the same time, Tendence gives the high-volume international trade the chance to order in good time for their spring and summer collections. And, for the first time, there will be an extra hall for the overseas container business ? visitors will find international sourcing in Hall 10.1.

?Our primary objective is growth and we are well on course. Around 80 percent of exhibition space has already been booked and our plan to enlarge the fair by rounding off and expanding established product groups, as well as adding new segments, is already showing signs of success. For example, Hall 8.0 is already fully booked up and the number of registrations received for the jewellery segment is particularly encouraging,? sais Philipp Ferger, group show director of tendence. Also in Hall 8.0, seasonal decoration innovations will be showcased for boutique buyers and wholesalers: the complete spectrum of seasonal decoration ideas perfect for garden centre retailers.

Based on the new timing at the end of June, it has been possible to create a new hall constellation. In the interests of visitors and a better trade-fair experience, Messe Frankfurt can now provide more space and a new set of halls. Halls 8, 9 and 11 will be used and, because of the new visitor guidance system, it is possible to relinquish Hall level 9.2. Consequently, the Jewellery & Accessories section with jewellery, watches and fashion accessories will be in Hall 11.1 in future while Hall 11.0 will be available for Young Gifts and Culinary Gifts, which include gift articles and design-oriented table and kitchen accessories, as well as gourmet gifts, such has high-quality oils and tea specialities. In the ?Pure & Elegant? section in Hall 9.0, functional, timeless and modern-puristic furnishing concepts meet emotional, classic and elegant furnishing concepts with high-quality furniture, textiles and home accessories. Classic and decorative gift ideas are positioned in the ?Gift Classics? section in Hall 9.1 while furnishing ideas for the home and indoor and outdoor decorating are to be found in the ?Lovely Home? and ?Seasonal Decoration? sections in Hall 8.0.
