Hall 3.1

The Stage

The Stage: the international programme of talks at imm cologne

Every year in January, Hall 3.1 at Koelnmesse is transformed into a meeting place for experts and designers who gather to inform trade show visitors about the latest industry trends and give them insights into future developments in home living. With The Stage, imm cologne provides architects, planners, designers and journalists with an information and networking platform that offers them an overview of current interior design trends.

Alongside talks on trending topics such as lighting, colours and materials, presentations on The Stage will also shine a light on the latest developments in interior design. A wide spectrum of issues is on the agenda, ranging from sustainability, business and future forms of living to room concepts and individualisation.

But The Stage is not just a central forum for trend information for professionals and creative partners in the industry. The forum also has an exciting programme in store for the public days of the fair. Interior designers and design professionals will give end consumers practical tips on home furnishing and information on the right colour combinations, the use of light in their homes and the latest living trends, as well as sharing their expertise in furnishing.
