The 2018 edition of trade fair Imm Cologne – taking place on the 15th-21st January next year – is “almost fully booked” already, according to organisers, with a double-digit growth rate recorded and almost all of the halls already fully reserved.

According to organiser Koelnmesse, the 2018 trade fair is set to see more than 1,200 exhibitors, 70% of which will be coming from abroad with a double-digit increase in exhibitors from Italy, Spain and Portugal as well as a “marked increase” in interest from Poland, Greece and Turkey.

“Compared with the same period of the previous year – 2016 – we have recorded double-digit
growth overall – and that is with respect to exhibitor numbers as well as the amount of reserved space,” said trade fair management vice president Arne Petersen.

“Almost all of the halls are already fully reserved, both in the design-oriented Pure areas and in those halls in which the lower and mid-priced segments are exhibited,” Peterson added, noting that this is due to a “double-digit percentage increase” in registrations from abroad.
