TrendSet is the fair for trends and ordering with the most visitors in summer

From 6 to 8 July, TrendSet Summer 2019 counted nearly 30,000 trade visits. The number and quality of the visitors underscore once more the great significance of TrendSet as the largest German trade fair for trends and ordering with the most visitors in summer. TrendSet remained completely stable in its Summer 2019 edition, as in past summers. The exhibitors showed themselves to be satisfied with the orders and with Munich as a trade fair venue. The trade visitors took advantage of the three days of the fair for intensive discussions, gaining information about trends, and ordering.

After a rather average start to the season in Frankfurt, the expectations towards Munich were high. As the Interiors & Lifestyle fair with the most visitors in summer, TrendSet Summer 2019 was once again able to fulfil the expectations of trade visitors and exhibitors. On about 100,000 square metres of exhibition space, approximately 2,500 brands and collections from around 40 countries around the world representing the new trends and products for Autumn/Winter 2019.20 and beyond were shown to an interested clientele from the industry. With respect to who exactly is attending TrendSet, it became apparent that the trade visitors come from a wider variety of countries and that more and more dealers are coming to the trade fair. TrendSet is accordingly looking forward with optimism to the coming winter and especially to the next TrendSet Summer. This is because especially for the summer, the two trade fair locations Munich and Paris are emerging as the leading industry platforms in Europe in the area of Living & Giving.

TrendSet continues to evolve

The evolution of TrendSet always takes place with a view to the needs of the industry and in close coordination with TrendSet exhibitors. TrendSet is in discussions with important groups of exhibitors with regard to expanding the exhibition area. TrendSet is also considering extending the trade fair in order to give even more space to the intensive discussions and presentations taking place at TrendSet.

The concept of the exhibition TrendSet is working

A lot of things in the trade are changing. Shops are changing into showrooms, adventure locations, and concept stores. The online trade and stationary trade are combining to form customer-oriented fulfilment centres. Sales concepts that have worked successfully for years are being reflected on and rethought with regard to their future viability. TrendSet, as the International Trade Fair for Interiors, Inspiration and Lifestyle, supports the trade when it comes to using new trends and products successfully for one’s own business or shop. One example of this is the sales-oriented product concept of TrendSet, which guides trade visitors clearly and concisely through the exhibitors’ offerings in line with the industry and product range of interest of the trade visitor. In the 15 Interiors & Lifestyle Fair Areas of the TrendSet, visitors will find new, trendy, and proven products from Living & Giving. The four Topic Areas TrendSet Country & Style, TrendSet Newcomer, TrendSet Fine Arts, and TrendSet Bijoutex provide focused space for special offers oriented to the target group.

When there is a new or increased demand for products and ranges among exhibitors and trade visitors alike, TrendSet is the flexible trade fair partner to respond to these trends. For example, at TrendSet Summer 2019, the fifteenth Fair Area “Furnishings & Design Objects” premiered. By offering this new product category, TrendSet is reacting to the growing demand for more personalised interiors and high-value gift ideas, offering more product variety for sales ranges. In the Interiors & Lifestyle Fair Area Furnishings & Design Objects, exhibitors displayed new and trendy elements of interior design, unique design objects, and many exclusive products. TrendSet created additional space for these items in Hall B2 where the high-quality products of the new product category of the fair, along with additional exhibitors from the interiors sector, could be found. Not to be forgotten: the new art area TrendSet Fine Arts, which provides space for contemporary art and which was introduced in 2018.

The trends in Interiors & Lifestyle A/W 2019.20

Christmas was very present in the exhibition halls of TrendSet. While the summer sun shone outdoors in the Bavarian blue sky, Christmas baubles and Christmas decorations were glittering brightly indoors. The exhibitors at TrendSet Summer 2019 presented their new products for Autumn/Winter 2019.20 along with Christmas articles. There were playful and original designs to see along with pure designs and shapes in tune with nature. A wide variety of styles from modern to retro were casually mixed. Imaginative furniture, experimental lamps, and creative decorations create a good mood. Designs with nostalgic borrowings from various decades and epochs bring cosiness into winter rooms. The continuing trend of nature is given a mystical touch with elements from the flora and fauna of the local forest and irregular surfaces.

New and innovative products at the TrendSet Topic Areas

TrendSet Fine Arts appeared for the third time at TrendSet Summer 2019, while the established Topic Areas TrendSet Country & Style with trendy heimat products, TrendSet Newcomer with new firms and young companies, and TrendSet Bijoutex with new accessories were also at TrendSet Summer 2019. At the art area of TrendSet, artists presented individual works and series of contemporary fine art. More on the TrendSet Topic Areas at TrendSet Summer 2019 …

Exhibitors’ comments from TrendSet Summer 2019:

“TrendSet is running well for us, as always. We meet our regular customers here and are able to acquire new customers and prospects again and again. There’s ordering going on, but it appears to be a bit challenging emotionally owing to the general state of the world. This doesn’t necessarily have to be a disadvantage for us, because in insecure times, larger purchases or activities are done away with and instead investments in interiors and decorations are made.”
Arnold Maier (Managing Director, AM-Design)

“We are satisfied with how the fair went. We were able to attract a lot of traffic to our stand; the customers are happy to place orders. First and foremost, our regular customers always visit us at TrendSet, but we also welcome many new customers here.”
Darwin Molenaar (Internal Account Manager Large Accounts, Light & Living)

“It’s noticeable that here at TrendSet, bigger orders are made. Because of Munich as the trade fair venue, a good clientele comes here. For us, TrendSet is always advantageous. We meet our trade fair clientele in Munich and Paris.”

We have met a few new customers and also networked with exhibitors whom we didn’t know before. The structure of product ranges at TrendSet is good and the result is a great mix of products in the halls.”
Andreas Bochem (Managing Director, KAEMINGK)

Susanne Lübech (Owner/Designer, Lübech Living)

“Here at TrendSet, we carry on discussions with many of our regular customers. But we also find good potential for gaining new customers here. Our topics are well accepted by the attendees here.”
Boris Antochin (Sales Manager, Pad Home Design)

“The fair is going well; we have slightly increased our sales volumes in comparison to the previous year. One is in a good position to present oneself, make contacts, and start conversations.”
Ralf Ullrich (Sales, Goufrais F. Keller)

Heike Heller (Managing Director, paruspaper)

“TrendSet Summer 2019 is going really well for us; next time, we are going to try to get an even larger stand. The TrendSet concept is successful.

Here, I am quite able to extend my radius, because besides people interested in art and gallery owners, B2B target groups come here—that is, interior decorators, hotel owners, stationery shop owners, interior designers. Those are new contacts for me that also inspire me to continue to develop my works. I am able to present myself professionally to a wide audience at TrendSet. Everything is here—from the installed lights to catering. The price/performance ratio can’t be beat. And the audience here is at a very high level.”
Marie-Louise Sieber (Artist, papart – Kunstobjekte aus Papier)

“We are satisfied with how TrendSet Summer 2019 is going. The fair simply works. The order figures are good and the traffic at our stand is also good. We meet our regular customers here at TrendSet Bijoutex, but we also meet many new customers from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, and France.”
Jolita Huybregts (Managing Director, biba)
