Every two years, interzum offers a stage that is unique in the world on which exciting world premieres, real product innovations and industry-wide developments appear. This makes the fair a must-attend event for decision-makers, architects, designers, contract furnishers and product developers from the industry, retail and the specialised trades:

There is one thing that makes interzum a magnet for trade visitors from across the world: It represents the full spectrum of the global market. It offers a globally unique opportunity to gain an overview of innovations and trends. The trade fair is divided into three segments: Materials & Nature, Function & Components, and Textile & Machinery. This makes it easy for visitors to find the relevant offerings for them at interzum – and easy for them to find you.
People have to and want to be more mobile; societies are ageing; more and more people are moving to cities; shortages of living space are intensifying in growing metropolises. The logical consequence: The requirements for living and work spaces are changing. The advance of digitalisation, increasing individualisation and the desire for greater sustainability mean more challenges for the furniture industry: Furniture and materials must become more environmentally friendly, more connected and more intelligent. interzum reflects these and other developments in an outstanding programme of events.
Three themed piazzas at interzum present solutions for the major trends in the furniture and interiors industry:
»Materials & Nature« is devoted to new, innovative and pioneering materials and production techniques.
»Function & Components« is the place to experience innovations from the fittings and lighting industry.
»Textile & Machinery« presents the key trends and innovations in the textile industry.
interzum attracts attention long before the fair actually opens: Press events and press releases make the fair and its innovations a topic of discussion on a global scale. The results speak for themselves: 375 journalists from around the globe came to interzum in 2019 to learn about the key industry innovations and then spread the news around the world.
