With three months to go before opening, exhibitor registrations to this summer’s Tendence are already significantly higher than last year.
Organisers say that 95% of space at the show – which runs in Frankfurt from August 26 to 30 – has already been booked.
With over 2,000 exhibitors, Tendence is the biggest and most important order and trend platform in the second half of the year. It offers buyers insights into the latest themes for the coming autumn /winter season, especially Christmas, and a preview of new products for spring and summer of the following year.
The show comprises two product sections: Giving, featuring gifts, and Living, offering a comprehensive collection of products for home and table.
Running alongside the exhibition is a lecture programme based around fresh ideas and highlighting examples of best practice in the industry. There are also competition areas such as Talents and Next, which present newcomers’ original product ideas and focus on design, sustainability and creativity.
