Interactive ideas festival for the living space of the future

A lively mixture of trade show, conference and innovation lab

The Connect Hub offers exhibitors a wide range of opportunities to position brands and products in a creative and innovative environment. It connects visitors, exhibitors, products, services and future topics in innovative participation and workshop formats. Exhibitors thus have the chance to engage in intensive exchange with relevant target groups and trade visitors over the course of the trade fair events. The Connect Hub also provides exhibitors with a unique opportunity to communicate the potential of complex digital products and business models in a visible and easy-to-understand way.

Connect Hub


The Connect Hub is a trade fair, conference, networking event and interactive innovation workshop all in one. It activates the potential of growing digitalisation by shining the spotlight on the cross-markets relevant to the interiors industry.

It opens up an interdisciplinary perspective of the networked products, services and business models of tomorrow and the future. As well as offering participants a lively place to exchange knowledge and experience, the Connect Hub serves as an inspiring catalyst for developing new and cross-industry business potential.


The content of the event programme and workshops will be developed by the Connect team in close coordination with the exhibitors and divided into topics which will be spread across the trade fair days and carefully orchestrated. Each of the moderated event sessions will be hosted by 1-3 exhibitors.

Depending on demand and content, they will range from individual workshops to entire topic days, from compact specialist insights to agile prototyping sprints. In order to centrally consolidate the results of the events, daily “recap” formats and continuous analogue and digital documentation will thematically link the individual sessions. This will create a diverse and engaging innovation map that will then be made available to the participants.

Highest media attention

The Connect Hub puts exhibitors and impetus providers at the center of media attention: With topics around IoT, smart living, digital business models and forward-looking technologies, Connect sets exciting topic anchors for innovative and digitally affine target groups.

The dynamic event program, in conjunction with the aesthetic show cases, provides a framework for the production of authentic and high-quality digital content.
