To our exhibitors: Warning about a fake invoice from the platform “International Fairs Directory”

When you receive supposed invoices from TrendSet GmbH with the subject “Advertisement in International Fairs Directory,” you should be cautious. In the past few days, some of our exhibitors have received correspondence from “International Fairs Directory” in which the exhibitors were requested to pay for advertisements they supposedly placed. The company which apparently manages this platform calls itself Mulpor Company S.A. and is located in Uruguay.

PLEASE WATCH OUT: This demand for payment has not been initiated by TrendSet. The TrendSet exhibition has absolutely no contractual relationship to Mulpor Company S.A. or the platform “International Fairs Directory.”

Despite icy weather and a special scheduling situation, TrendSet Winter 2017 was able to fulfil expectations.

TrendSet has sustained its international orientation. The percentage of attendees from outside Germany has increased by just over 10%. 

Every two years again and again, TrendSet Winter is subject to a special scheduling issue because of the exhibition BAU, and therefore has to move away from its usual weekend and holiday schedule. TrendSet is therefore all the more pleased that despite the scheduled dates on the one hand, and snow, storm, and ice on the other, the exhibition ran successfully and fulfilled the expectations of both exhibitors and attendees. Optimistic ordering behaviour and the high quality of attendees at this year’s TrendSet Winter 2017 satisfied exhibitors. A contributing factor was surely the percentage of attendees from countries other than Germany, which rose by just over 10%. With a total of 34,891 visits, the 109th TrendSet started the ordering season 2017 and, with its many new products, set the trends for the entire industry. 

Right at the start of the new year, the trade visitors from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, northern Italy, and neighbouring EU states discovered the trends for the new season at TrendSet Winter from 4 to 6 January 2017 in Munich, Germany. From Wednesday to Friday, approximately 2,500 brands and collections displayed all the new products from 15 living and lifestyle categories. In nine fully booked exhibition halls, industry leaders, niche players, and newcomers presented their latest products on 100,000 square metres of exhibition space for three days. There were many things to see in the area of beautiful things for living, both indoors and outdoors, practical and stylish products for the kitchen, dining area, bath, and office, and wonderful ideas for giving and decorating.

TrendSet themed areas well-visited.

The themed areas at TrendSet, as well, were frequented quite well. In TrendSet Bijoutex, the exhibitors displayed the latest trends for fashion jewellery, fashion, and beauty. Trendy and traditional products related to national costumes and country styles were presented at TrendSet Country & Style, the themed area for collections with a homeland theme. TrendSet Newcomer enticed attendees to have a look at young companies with promising new products.

High quality of visits; good clientele.

As the first trade fair of the season, TrendSet provides a glimpse of the new product ranges carried by exhibitors as early as the start of January.

“TrendSet consists of a variety of industry sectors and products. The trade fair clientele from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, northern Italy, and the neighbouring EU member states, which because of the Munich being an exhibition location, is high-quality and possesses purchasing power, is able to become informed of the latest trends in the various areas and to order early in the season in a most accessible manner,” commented TrendSet managing director Tatjana Pannier on the position of TrendSet as one of the leading trade fairs for living and lifestyle.

Exhibitors satisfied: Mood and order volumes both good.

We are satisfied with how TrendSet Winter 2017 ran. The volumes of visitors and orders were good. Besides, we were able to gain several new customers here. The TrendSet management always does a good job. The halls are optimally structured; the concept leaves nothing to be desired.

Veit Mehlhorn (Managing Partner, la vida)

 

The fair is running well for us; we are very satisfied. The visitors are ordering and our latest products at the stand definitely are being well received. TrendSet has done a good job again.

Helmut Tillmann (Sales Manager, blomus)

 

We are very satisfied with this year’s winter TrendSet. We have received a big response from visitors regarding our novelties and products. All important and large customers were here and overall, a lot of ordering took place.

Volker Schmid (Sales Manager/Key Account Manager, ABC Karten)

 

The visitor frequency at TrendSet Winter 2017 is very good. Also, what was positive this time: The flow of attendees was continuous; this allowed us time to attend optimally to each visitor. All important customers are here and have ordered a lot. The exhibition is ideal for us. We sell in southern Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The respective clientele is right here at TrendSet.

Bjarne Lund Jepsen (Marketing and Sales Manager, IB Laursen)

 

The fair was a success. I was able to acquire new customers and show good order figures. TrendSet once again did a super job.

Eva Schreiber (Managing Director, EVA SCHREIBER)

 

TrendSet is always a good location for us. For the area Home, Interior, Lifestyle, TrendSet is the ideal exhibition here.

Daniel Henriksen (Owner, Hübsch Interior)

 

When it comes to the winter dates, which are followed by the exhibition BAU, we already expect, through the setup for BAU and the change of how attendees flow through the halls, that there will be fewer visitors. Nevertheless, we exhibit at TrendSet, because our customers are present here and the order volume is, in relation to this, OK. The only thing missing a bit is the attendees who happen to be passing by.

Arnold Maier (Managing Director, AM-Design)

 

On the first day of the fair, despite the date being in the middle of the week and despite the icy weather forecast, our stand was well-frequented, contrary to our expectations. The following days of the fair were somewhat quieter. But otherwise, things ran at TrendSet positive as always.

Rafael Vosteen (Management, VOSTEEN)

 

Due to the weather, some of our customers cancelled their visit. This, and the change of how attendees flow through the halls, owing to the following exhibition BAU, gave us fewer trade visitors and lower order volumes, which we expected. With TrendSet itself, we are very satisfied. For us, it is an important trade fair, allowing us to work our southern German sales region. We will be here the next time around.

Marcel d’Haan (Regional Account Manager, Light & Living)

 

We are here for the second time already in the Newcomer Area and very satisfied with how the fair is running. Many are ordering very well. We were able to speak to many interested visitors at the stand and gain valuable contacts. Our first appearance at TrendSet in this area in summer 2016 had already brought our company a real boost. It makes sense to be here, because we meet so many prospective customers at TrendSet that one would otherwise not reach.

Paul Kubik (Marketing, Eulenschnitt)

 

For us, mainly the first two days of the fair in the Newcomer Area ran very well. We had many interesting discussions and made promising contacts.

Henrik Roth (Owner, BEWOODEN)

 

I am at Country & Style for the first time and it is running well. Country & Style is an ideal location to present myself in my area. I will come again.

Frank Sommer (Managing Director, CHIEMSEE DESIGN)

 

We are satisfied here at TrendSet Bijoutex. With regard to visitor frequency, the days were really mixed, but the volume was OK for us. We are also very satisfied with the way the TrendSet exhibition team conducts the fair and supports us.

Rhisa P. Sabardal (Sales, cute stuff)

 

All signs point to nature: the trends of the coming season.

The designs and ideas for Spring/Summer 2017 follow the overall theme of nature. This is expressed by earthy tones and natural materials which are alone or combined to harmonic designs. Fresh colours and wild ethno prints join them to exude pure summer feeling. The deep, quiet radiance of blue is made use of in many designs in fashion and interior.

Urban naturalness: Many designs incorporate the connection between nature and city. With an urban feeling, animal patterns or camouflage in green and earthy hues present a modern view of well-being and harmony. Natural materials combine to exciting syntheses with industrial designs. Following the continuing trend toward nature, wood continues to be completely on trend. Natural, processed, or in vintage style, wood gives furniture, lamps, and decorative elements a warm and unique look.

Fresh designs: The colours and patterns in the new season are full of life. Style and origin mingle in designs. Wild ethnic patterns meet cool looks. Cultural influences mix together with individual styles. What results is a multicultural mix of fabrics, colours, patterns, and styles.

Cool colours: In Summer 2017, nobody can pass up the trend colour blue in all nuances of nature — from ocean blue to sky blue. Blue tones are combined with light grey or white. Flowing, partly technical fabrics support the calm effect of the colours just as batik and ombré effects do. Denim, as well, is used in all sorts of various designs.

Special trends: On textiles and consumer goods, or as a figure and toy, unicorns exude their magical charm. For Easter, partly larger-than-life eggs, chickens, and hares in the trend colours or made of wood romp about in the home decorated for Easter.

Press preview report TrendSet Winter 2017 — the start of the exhibition season 2017

TrendSet Winter 2017 presents: The latest trends for Spring/Summer 2017!

Where are the trends of the upcoming season? Which trends can be observed for sales? What will people buy in spring and summer 2017? The trade already needs answers to these questions to be able at an early point in time to seek out and order the goods for the first half of the new year. The answers can be found at the “109th TrendSet – International Living and Lifestyle Fair for Consumer Goods” from 4 to 6 January 2017 in Munich, Germany.

This is where they can be found: the trends for the next spring/summer season. As the largest and most trade fair of its kind in the southern German-speaking region, TrendSet Winter 2017 is the first, at the beginning of January, to give the trade a first glimpse of the new assortment of approximately 2,500 brands and product lines from 15 living and lifestyle categories. Beautiful things for living both indoors and outdoors, practical and stylish goods for the kitchen, dining area, bath, and office, along with wonderful ideas for giving and decorating await attendees from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, northern Italy, and the neighbouring EU member states on approximately 100,000 square metres of exhibition space in nine fully booked exhibition halls. Industry leaders, niche players, and newcomers present their novelties and trends at TrendSet. As in previous years, TrendSet 2017 is therefore again a must-attend event for the entire industry. By the way, this year, because of the preparation for BAU 2017, TrendSet Winter 2017 is already taking place from Wednesday to Friday (4 January to 6 January 2017) and not, as usual, from Saturday to Monday.

On trend: colours and shapes of nature

In the next season, there are primarily two trends that the new trends follow. One is that the basic theme of nature continues to be current, but is being interpreted more openly and more colourfully than before. Earthy tones and natural materials combine to form harmonic designs. They are joined by fresh colours and wild ethic patterns for a pure summer feeling. Another trend is the colour blue as a trend colour for Summer 2017. It can be seen again and again in many designs for fashions and interiors in all shades from ocean blue to sky blue.

News from the TrendSet themed areas

Once again, at the TrendSet themed areas, many new things are waiting for attendees from the trade. Those who wish to take up new, young products in their assortments will be able to discover small but innovative companies at TrendSet Newcomer. This is where those firms new to the fair and also young companies present their promising products. TrendSet Country & Style, as well, is a part of it all, with many new products inspired by the homeland. At TrendSet Bijoutex, the trade will be able to find all the latest when it comes to fashion jewellery, beauty, and fashion.

Videos of the TrendSet Summer 2016 Trade Fair

 New on TrendSetTV: The new videos from the TrendSet Summer 2016 trade fair!

TrendSet Summer 2016 has started positively into the ordering season Autumn/Winter 2016/17. With 30,753 attendees from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, northern Italy, and neighbouring European Union member states, which represents a slight increase of nearly 1% more attendees than last year, TrendSet is successfully continuing its position as the exhibition for trends and novelties.

The highlights of the fair, along with inspirations from our themed areas TrendSet Newcomer and TrendSet Country & Style, have been captured in our exhibition videos. You can watch the videos immediately online in the TrendSet TV channel on YouTube.

The coming TrendSet Winter 2016 is taking place from 4 January to 6 January 2017.

 

 

Good ordering mood with stable attendee figures at TrendSet Summer 2016.

A positive start to the Autumn/Winter 2016/2017 ordering season 

During sunny summer weather outdoors, the 108th TrendSet presented the latest trends for the coming autumn and winter indoors on over 100,000 well air-conditioned square metres. Many attendees from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, northern Italy, and the neighbouring EU member states took advantage of the strategically favourable time at the beginning of the European summer holidays to order new products for the next season at the leading trend trade fair in southern Germany. Three days long, from 9 July to 11 July 2016, international exhibitors from 15 living an lifestyle categories presented in nine exhibition halls the products that will arrive in shops in Autumn/Winter 2016/2017. The new themed area TrendSet Country & Style, in which trendy and traditional national costumes, country-inspired fashioned, and products rooted in the homeland are exhibited, also attracted many attendees. In all, TrendSet recorded, with 30,735 attendees, a slight increase of about 1% in the number of attendees relative to the previous year.

Counter to the generally reserved atmosphere in the industry, which may have triggered mixed feelings on the part of some exhibitors at the start of the fair, TrendSet Summer 2016 registered a great number of attendees, full stands, and full order books. In particular, on Sunday midday, the atmosphere and also the desire to order clearly increased. With a stable number of attendees, TrendSet continues to set its position as the trade fair for trends and new products.

 

More areas — even more variety.

For the first time in its history, TrendSet, as the largest and most important trade fair of its kind in the southern German-speaking region, started off with 15 living and lifestyle areas. In addition to the tried and true themed areas of beautiful things for living and lifestyle — outdoors and indoors, practical and stylish objects for the kitchen, dining area, bath, and office, along with wonderful ideas for giving and decorating, and not to forget, the themed areas TrendSet bijoutex and TrendSet Newcomer, TrendSet Country & Style offered new products and trends all having to do with the homeland. This theme actually permeated all of the exhibition halls. On the Country & Style Wall in the west and east entrances, exhibitors had the opportunity to promote their homeland collections. On the additional 300 square metre special area, further companies from this field presented their products. The new area was well-accepted by attendees. Concerning the topic of pre-ordering, as well, TrendSet had news to report. Up to now, a gap in the offerings of international fairs has existed: The floristry and decoration industry sector did not have any possibility of pre-ordering in summer. On the first day of the fair, exhibitors and the fair management met to discuss how this gap can be closed through and at TrendSet in the coming years.

 

Exciting trends — thrilling new products.

In all areas of TrendSet Summer 2016, a good mood for ordering was in the air. The TrendSet exhibitors, with their total of 2,500 brands and lines, won over the attendees from the trade with many innovations. The connecting element seen with almost all products is, in the coming season, a light naturalness. Whether glowing colours or soft tones, elegant designs or pure cuts — nature as the grounding element of arriving, relaxing, and feeling good puts its stamp on the living and lifestyle products in Autumn/Winter 2016/17. 

“We believe ourselves to be a showplace for what is happening in trends. As a platform, where exhibitors and attendees meet and are able to exchange. Where trends and new products are presented, seen, discovered, and can be ordered,” outlines Tatjana Pannier, Managing Director of TrendSet, as her aspiration. “The variety of what is on offer is important, but so is the point in time. TrendSet Summer 2016 took place at the start of the European summer holiday season. That means the important customers were there to order early. The wide spectrum and mix of products from 15 living and lifestyle categories also holds a high potential of success for attendees’ finding new bestsellers.” Pannier explains the development of the new homeland line area TrendSet Country & Style thusly: “Keeping pace with the trends also means that we continuously check our concept and, if necessary, develop it further. Currently, this has happened in the area of products close to the roots. The yearning for cosiness and home has developed into an ever growing trend for national costumes and regional accessories. Many companies have adopted such articles in their stocks or are now completely focused on them. To give this important topic more space, and to give our exhibitors more space for it as well, we created ‘TrendSet Country & Style’ as a new themed area for homeland collections.”

 

Satisfied exhibitors — filled order books.

“TrendSet Summer was a success for us. The atmosphere was excellent. We were able to generate many new customers or contacts. And the cooperation with and the service from TrendSet leaves nothing to be desired.”

Konstanze Kratzer (Co-Proprietor, rifletto)

 

“We were able to maintain our order volume from last year at this year’s summer TrendSet. Besides our regular customers, primarily many prospective customers and new customers from Austria frequented our stand.”

Bärbel Grünberger (Managing Director, Varia Living)

 

“We are satisfied with our appearance at the summer TrendSet and certainly were able to reach the order volume of the past year.”

Arnold Maier (Management, AM Design)

 

“We were at TrendSet for the first time and are pleased that we were accepted so well by the attendees here. There’s a lot of passion and heart and soul in our products. Everything is created and designed by me. We were able to successfully show that in personal contact with customers and potential customers. We will come again.”

Susanne Kaumanns (Management, TAFELGUT)

 

“Right now, nature is the theme. Our articles made of wood and recycled materials are completely on trend and were well accepted by the attendees at TrendSet Summer 2016. We have been here for 25 years and meet our regular customers here.”

Nico Attasio (Managing Director, DECORAMA)

 

“The new Country & Style area is very interesting to us. This is where an regional target group that’s important to us meets up, and the larger buyers stop by to have a look as well. Besides the German visitors, a lot of Swiss and Austrians visited our stand, too. And ordering ran well from the first day onward.”

Thomas J. Pflaume (Managing Director, MÜNCHNER GLÜCKSKINDL)

 

“For us, who also have a shop in Munich, the Country & Style area is a good opportunity to continue presenting ourselves and to examine and probe the market.”

Philipp von Frankenberg (Managing Partner, Amsel Fashion)

 

“We have over 8,000 articles, from all-year products to seasonal goods. We were able to exhibit this wide range well at TrendSet. This is where we meet our regular customers and the right clientele. Our new products were well received, and our products are ordered.”

Florian Hofer (Head of Procurement and Sales, Florex® Schafmilchseifen [Sheep’s Milk Soaps])

 

“In addition to our regular customers, this time, surprisingly, many new customers were at our stand. TrendSet in Munich is simply a high-quality trade fair venue with a good set of industry professionals.”

Eva Schreiber (Managing Director, Eva Schreiber)

 

“This is already our second time at the Newcomer Area of TrendSet. For us, it is a chance to present our company and products to a good professional audience.”

Daniela Sepp (Managing Directo, Principessa’s)

 

“TrendSet Summer was very successful for us. We had good order volumes and are satisfied.”

Ferry Mulder (General Manager, Cor Mulder)

 

“The fair ran well and the team from TrendSet was, as always, very friendly and had organised everything well.”

Harjan Dijkstra (titicaca Trade)

 

“This time, we had more order volume than last year at TrendSet Summer. Our seasonal novelties for Christmas were especially well accepted.”

Frank Schmidt (Managing Director, Beauty Group)

 

“For us, TrendSet Summer 2016 ran super. We were even able to record a slight plus in order volume compared to the previous year. Here in Munich, one just meets a good clientele, and the contact to the management of TrendSet is always good.”

Agnes Kwoka (Managment, Kwoka)

 

The main trends in Autumn/Winter 2016/17.

Supported by the basic theme of nature, for the coming autumn/winter season, four styles emerge. LIGHT LIVING: This trend focuses primarily on feeling good and relaxation. Light, soft colours build harmonious alliances with natural materials and soothingly clear shapes. Pure materials, muted pastel shades in combination with white, beige, or grey, and quiescent designs generate harmony and balance with an effortless lightness. STYLE DELUXE and DEEP ENERGY are glamourous, powerful trends that create glowing, energetic statements out of interior furnishings, fashions, and accessories in Winter 2016/17. Gleaming materials in combination with brilliant colours make elegant statements. Glossy surfaces of gold, copper, and bronze harmonize with intensive primary colours. Red and green, in combination with bright, soft neutrals and accenting blue, build new and exciting alliances. NATURAL SENSE, on the other hand, unites natural materials, tranquil forms, and matte colour tones into pure wellbeing. Here, the design follows the statement of the material and the colours reflect the intention of the material. Pure styles, natural materials, and earthy tones establish the picture of this timeless trend.

 

Naturally beautiful: Cosiness with style.

In the living area, the longing for nature is strongly lived out. Back to Nature is the motto. But stylish, please! In this fundamental attitude of interior design, shapes, colours, and materials follow a natural flow. Wood, metal, and matte tones such as grey, brown, and black are in the foreground. In many cases, deep colour accents in red, yellow, and blue serve to vitalize. Copper and bronze, as well, play an important role with their radiant presence. When it comes to materials, geometric patterns rule. Abstract or ethnic, they set clear statements. Lettering and panels containing mottos are particularly on trend. Besides geometric patterns, once again, amusing, partly humanized animals romp about many sorts of accessories. The vintage trend of the past seasons is being replaced by contemporarily interpreted retrospective designs.

 

Colourful trends — from teacups to tea towels.

Many dish and glass designs exude casual elegance or a handmade look in the coming winter. Gold underscores the tea time look of many objects. Fine porcelain, bevelled glass, and colourful ceramics remind us of the cosiness of long-ago times. Retro design and country house impressions combine in a modern interpretation to serve up a timeless, cosy look. In the kitchen, wood, cast iron, and stainless steel are the preferred materials. Aprons and dish (tea) towels are decorated with merry natural patterns or pure geometrical ones. Many consumer goods also follow the infinite food trend in Winter 2016/17. When eating and drinking are to be enjoyed anytime, anywhere, then mugs and dishes to go are needed. The colours are, in this case, like the mobile lifestyle: cheerful, uncomplicated, bright.

 

Beautiful things for indoors and outdoors.

Whether Asian temple decorations, wintry candle accessories, make-it-yourself meteorites, crisp decorative fruit on a stick, cheeky elven pixies, or stylized snowmen—decorations and presents are so original and tasteful that they fit every occasion and every decorating style. The animal world is also romping around the living room this winter. Frogs, deer, kitty-cats—all of them are looking for a warm spot in the house during the cold season in a noble, pure, or comic design. There are also new ideas for New Year’s Day. Confetti on a stick, for example, creates a surprising turn of the year. In the paper and stationery category, most of the designs are based on soft colours, haptic papers, and aesthetic designs. Following the general trend to more naturalness, natural and kraft papers are often used. Colouring books and designs to colour in are still a huge hit. With toys, high-tech toys continue to advance. Three-dimensional printers to build yourself or cars that can be steered with smartphones are no longer rarities. But the classic toys, as well, such as puzzles, plush animals, and Legos, continue to be successful. Brain builders, which encourage creativity, are also important. In the bath, fragrant bath spheres, bath chocolates, bath candles, and bath additives, along with rich care products, provide physical wellbeing. In the garden and on the terrace and balcony, ceramics and terracotta meet matte or shiny metals. The colours grey, black, olive, and brown build natural harmonies with green, white, and pastel-coloured tones. The designs are pure and clear.

 

Naturalness is the new black.

Bright, light, natural, feminine with a touch of glamour—when it comes to fashions, the trends in Winter 2016/17 follow the general trend to more nature and authenticity. Muted rose, orange, and salmon shades impart suave looks. Blue, green, grey, and beige form harmonious contrasts to them. Soft, flowing fabrics cover their wearers in a sensuously inspired way. Leather is still en vogue, but vegan alternatives are starting to be seen. Wool, felt, and fur are oh-so-tempting for cuddly, cosy moments. The designs and styles are characterised by tranquillity and clarity. Large statement necklaces, oversized hoop earrings, voluminous hair ornaments, and chains in a layered look dominate the picture. In return, with this XXL trend, the designs are discreetly restrained. Fine frames, clear forms, and pure materials combat the gigantism elegantly. Filigree links make massive bracelets look lighter. Pure leather bracelets keep large golden timepieces in check. Romantic, nostalgic, or boho styles generate large, partly uncut semiprecious or precious stones. Gold is the precious metal in Winter 2016/17. Whether classic, white, or rosé—it gives jewellery a glamourous, valuable, and warm expression. Ethnic, retrospective, and modern designs are thus implemented aesthetically.

 

Festive Christmas!

In December, stars, reindeer, and Christmas ornaments come along in green, red, gold, or copper. Wood brings naturalness into the Christmas room. Combined with red, it bubbles country charm; combined with gold, it radiates festive elegance. Funny Christmas gnomes steal the show from the Christmas tree. Additional decorative objects follow the general winter trend toward a delicate lightness. Pastel colours and white, nature tones, and gold create a dreamy, festive Christmas atmosphere. Red, as the ultimate Christmas colour, is also applied as an accent in keeping with tradition.

Press release TrendSet Summer 2016: Press preview report

TrendSet Summer 2016: The latest items and trends for Autumn/Winter 2016/2017.

From Saturday, 9 July 2016 to Monday, 11 July 2016, it is time once again: TrendSet, the largest and most important trade fair of its kind in the southern German-speaking region, will display the trends of the coming autumn and winter season 2016/2017 in Munich, Germany.

Industry leaders, niche suppliers, and newcomers will present the latest products from 15 living and lifestyle categories at the 108th TrendSet to attendees from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, northern Italy, and neighbouring EU member states. In nine large exhibition halls (over 100,000 square metres), approximately 2,500 brands and collections will be shown. Attendees from the trade will discover trendy products from the themed categories of beautiful living indoors and outdoors, practical and stylish objects for the kitchen, dining area, bath, and office, along with wonderful ideas for giving and decorating. However, in July, there will be so much to see aside from trends and products. TrendSet itself will offer many new things in July. For instance, TrendSet Summer 2016 will feature, for the first time, 15 living and lifestyle categories including the themed areas TrendSet Country & Style, TrendSet Newcomer, and TrendSet Bijoutex.

New: Country & Style – the themed area for regional collections rooted in the homeland, national costumes, and country-inspired products.

After positive feedback in January 2016, TrendSet Country & Style established itself as its own themed area in Hall A4 on approximately 300 square metres of space. This is where trendy and traditional products related to national costumes, country-inspired styles, and country themed-articles are on display. The focus of the area is on regional products of local origin with Alpine flair — from traditional costumes to trendy accessories and cosy decorations.

Tried and true: The themed area TrendSet Newcomer.

Those who wish to add young and new products to their product lines will be able to find small, innovative companies at TrendSet Newcomer once again. This is where exhibitors new to the fair and young entrepreneurs present their promising products.

Here again: TrendSet Topseller.

This time, as well, TrendSet is offering an additional presentation platform to its exhibitors — TrendSet Topseller. On a space of over 100 square metres at the main West Entrance, an exclusive stage within the fair has arisen — a showplace for exhibitors to present their product highlights in a visible way.

From quiet to exciting, from natural to expressive — in Autumn/Winter 2016/2017, everything is possible.

In autumn and winter 2006/2017, various trends in the living and lifestyle field meet one another. Light designs and calm colour tones are just as en vogue as opulent pieces and colour alliances. Nature as a basic theme continues to be an important trend, while elsewhere, lively colours and patterns strive for attention.

Post-fair report: TrendSet Winter 2016 draws record number of attendees

TrendSet Winter 2016 draws record number of attendees

Brilliant start to the 2016 order season 2016 at the 107th TrendSet in Munich.

As early as the first day, visitors thronged to the stands. With this positive start, TrendSet kicked off the 2016 order season in nine halls of the Munich Trade Fair Center (Messe München). With 38,502 trade visitors, which represents a plus of over 10% from last year in Winter 2015, TrendSet made a mark in the industry and once again claimed the spot as one of the leading trade fairs for living and lifestyle. From trends for beautiful living both indoors and outdoors through practical and elegant articles for the kitchen, dining area, bathroom, and office to wonderful ideas for giving and decorating, at the 107th TrendSet, there was much to discover from 9 to 11 January 2016. Exhibitors from 14 living and lifestyle categories displayed what will be up to date in 2016. The new TrendSet area “Country & Style” met with great approval. This is where attendees were able to become informed on the latest products and trends regarding homeland product lines, country designs, and Oktoberfest styles.

Once again, TrendSet inspired many attendees from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, northern Italy, and the neighbouring EU member states with an astonishing variety of novelties and trends for the spring and summer 2016 season. The high number of attendees of over 38,000 visitors from the trade was additionally encouraged by the dates of the fair. The reasons for the continous success of TrendSet were summarised straightforwardly by Tatjana Pannier, Managing Director: “At TrendSet, attendees can rely both on the innovative power of the articles and new products throughout all lifestyle categories and on the high standard of the exhibitors. Munich has continued to maintain itself in the marketplace and, as a first-class location for trade fairs, has concentrated the activity in the industry. Therefore, most of the exhibitors have continued to be able to increase their sales revenue from TrendSet to TrendSet.”

The attendees’ good mood for ordering surely was also because of the numerous new and promising trends. The big theme “nature” continued to be evident in 2016 in many different and sometimes surprising ways. Furniture, clothing, and accessories in natural materials set authentic accents. Retro in all shapes, patterns, and colours, along with urban vintage flair, underscores the natural trend in soft pastel tones. The new articles at TrendSet, from Easter eggs to decorative wall objects, implemented in unusual mixes of colours, materials, and patterns, provided for full order books.

The new TrendSet area “Country & Style,” as well, gained considerable attention. Placed directly at the West Entrance, this area permitted attendees to gain an overview of homeland-oriented products, trendy country-style outfits, and regional accessories directly at the start of their visit to the fair. “TrendSet stands for variety, creativity, and success. For us, this means permanently reviewing our concept as it relates to new developments,” commented Tatjana Pannier on how the new area came into being. “The longing for cosiness and home has developed into an increasingly larger trend toward country manor, national and regional costumes, and regional accessories. Many companies have added such articles to their product ranges or are even completely specialised in this area. To give this important topic and our exhibitors more space, we have developed an own area for products rooted in the homeland—‘Country & Style’. The great interest at TrendSet Winter 2016 has confirmed that we need to continue here. Therefore, TrendSet will become the leading trade fair in Germany in this area,” summed up the managing director of TrendSet.

Those who wish to include young and new products in their product ranges were able to discover innovative companies and first-time trade fair exhibitors presenting their promising products at the TrendSet Newcomer Area.

High volume of orders and satisfied exhibitors.

“On the first and second days of the fair, there were already so many visitors here that we had already achieved our order volume of the previous year by Sunday evening. The dates of the fair and the good mood of the attendees also contributed a lot. Many of them had just done a good Christmas business and have already ordered for Christmas 2016.” Philip Lang (Owner/Managing Director, Lang Kunstgewerbe)

“We are very satisfied with TrendSet Winter 2016. A lot was ordered over the entire range of products. Most of all, our new textiles in a vintage and retro style were very much in demand. We will definitely be here for the next show.“ Marco Wimmel (Senior Management Assistant, San Marco)

“TrendSet Winter 2016 ran exceedingly well for us. The dates were ideal and the weather also played along. Above all, our white things sold quite well. And Easter articles were ordered more often.” Arnold Maier (Owner, Am Design Floristik)

“We have exhibited our products at TrendSet for 20 years. This time, as before, we are very satisfied with the way the fair has run so far. The first day of the fair, the Saturday, we already well visited. We were able to make many new contacts and book good order volumes. The interest of our visitors from the trade was focused this time mostly on the new colourful spring and Easter articles and on our small furniture with natural-like designs.” Olaf Spiller (Owner/Managing Director, Spiller Raumobjekte & Gartenkultur)

“We started two years ago at the Newcomer Area. Now, too, at our regular stand, our bags are being well-received. The trade visitors are interested. We are excited by the Country & Style Area directly at the West Entrance. Many attendees got information there about our homeland-oriented products and then came to our stand.” Dagmar Sassadeck (Owner/Managing Director, Wies’n Tascherl)

“We have been a part of TrendSet for many years and exhibit our jewellery, scarves, and bags at TrendSet again and again. This time, most of all, our pastel-coloured articles were very much on trend. As early as the first day of the fair, we had a lot of visitors and good order figures.” Ruth Graß (Owner/Managing Director, A. + R. Hegmann)

“We have a very special product. We plate genuine natural leaves from trees or shrubs with gold or silver and then work them into pendants for chains. The Newcomer Area at TrendSet gives us the opportunity to try and see how our jewellery is received by a wide cross-section of attendees from the trade. Up to now, we have received a lot of interest. Everything is organised very well by the trade fair management. The Newcomer Area is also very well placed and built up. We will come again.” Andreas Richter (Owner/Manufacturer Blattpoesie)

“For us, this year’s Winter TrendSet started off well. The first day of the fair was so well attended that a whole lot was ordered from us. We see a very clear trend to more and more nature. Most notably, stone pine, natural herbs, and the natural contents of our pillows were especially in demand this year. We will exhibit again at TrendSet in summer.” Arthur Heidegger (Owner/Managing Director, Himmelgrün Natur)

Pure nature, wild mixes of patterns, and the longing for the good old times—from retro to modern, everything goes in 2016.

In spring and summer 2016, a new sense of common purpose for an own style has arisen from the wide-ranging trends of the previous season. Mixing and combining is very much allowed. Luxurious shapes meet no-frills styles. Natural design and pure elegance call the tune in fashion, living, and lifestyle. In the living area, light and functional are the keywords. Pastel tones and furniture in a natural look underscore the new lightheartedness. With the accessories, as before, many retro styles dominate the runways. As far as colours are concerned, the trend for 2016 is moving to gleaming blue and gold tones, followed by natural and pastel nuances.

The new lightness of style: Most of the new designs in 2016 have developed from retrospective influences. The retro looks in fashion are casual or preppy. In the living sector, as before, vintage, which takes up the yearning for the “good old days” and interprets it in a modern way, is being combined with urban styles. Natural fabrics such as cotton, linen, fur, and wood underscore the retrospective style code in natural and pastel colours.

Sun ahead: Many colours and patterns for spring and summer 2016 follow a cheerful, entertaining luxury vintage style. Wild graphical or animal patterns dominate the scene. Glowing sunny colours and earthy hues conjure up a colourful, warm naturalness on organic and retrospective shapes and forms.

Quiet moments in blue: The soothing colour of the sky and sea shows its cool and tranquil side in the coming spring and summer on many fabrics and accessories and on furniture. All blue hues are combined in various denim tones that prefer to keep to themselves tone in tone.
