From contract business to sustainable products – Ambiente is also a major international meeting place for exhibitors and visitors with specialist requirements. Here you'll have the opportunity to discuss the latest developments with industry professionals.
Exhibitors from all over the world present a broad spectrum of products for contract business – whether for fitting out hotels or cruise ships or other projects. Thanks to the clear labelling of exhibitor stands, visitors can quickly find the companies that interest them.
The HoReCa area offers premium-quality table settings and kitchen equipment. Outstanding gastronomy concepts and customising solutions have an international forum here. The relevant companies are easily identifiable at the fair thanks to their clear labelling.
The market for resource-friendly and fairtrade products has been growing for years. With "Ethical Style" Ambiente has established a major international hub for this segment. Visitors can quickly identify the relevant exhibitors at the fair thanks to their clear labelling.
An independent jury of experts checks the applicants and structures the offering clearly in six Ethical Style categories. Each exhibitor can fulfil one or more of these requirements with its products and may therefore be included in more than one of the categories.
Environmentally friendly materials
Products made from environmentally friendly materials such as renewable raw materials with low environmental impact throughout their life cycle or organically certified products.
Efficient, resource-friendly production processes e.g. in the energy, water or waste sectors.
Fair & socially responsible production
Products that are manufactured in social facilities and/or under socially responsible conditions and/or fair trade conditions and that promote social and/or cultural development in the producer countries.
Products whose raw materials are designed for recycling or that are processed into new products from used or no longer usable waste materials.
Products that are handmade and that maintain and promote craft skills.
Products that through their innovative nature (process, material, solution) help to conserve resources, e.g. quantity of raw materials, waste, energy and water.
