IMM Cologne on schedule with in-person event in 2022 and year-round virtual forum


COLOGNE, Germany – The international indoor trade event IMM Cologne, scheduled for January 17-23, 2022, is expecting the participation of around 600 companies representing 51 countries for its January trade show to be held at the Cologne exhibition grounds.

With 75% of exhibitors coming from outside Germany, the high level of international attendance further underlines the show’s relevance to the international interior design community.

“The next IMM Cologne is all about positioning: for us as a trade fair organiser, for the German furniture industry and for the entire sector”, says Matthias Pollmann, Vice President of Trade Fair Management for Koelnmesse, organizer of the fair. “But it’s not just about how we start 2022 aggressively. … I see the number of exhibitors at IMM Cologne 2022 as a good starting position for a successful relaunch. I firmly believe that imm cologne is the ideal platform for the industry to jointly design the living spaces of tomorrow.

Pollman said organizers expect visitor numbers to be below pre-pandemic levels and likely to increase depending on the number of exhibitors.

IMM Cologne 2022 will occupy nine halls:

  • Pure, the design quality format, will be staged in halls 11.1, 11.2, 2.2 and 3.2, complemented by Pure Architects in hall 4.2, hosted with Connect and showcasing solutions for living at home in a digital future .
  • Home, furnishing solutions for all lifestyles, will occupy halls 10.1, 10.2, 5.2, 6, 7 and 9.

The planning of the halls takes into account all necessary measures and official requirements for the protection of exhibitors and visitors. Exhibitors and visitors have three options to access the event: They must either be vaccinated, be cured of COVID-19 or be tested.

In addition to the in-person event scheduled for January, IMM Cologne 365 offers a year-round virtual forum to showcase product highlights and networking opportunities.
