Visitors looking for innovative kitchen and household products will find a varied, well-chosen selection at Solutions, a special presentation in the foyer of Hall 4.0. The curator of this area is the London designer Sebastian Bergne. True to the motto “Form follows function”, the choice of curated products focuses not only on the aesthetic character of a product, but particularly also on its functionality and innovative capability. Short video clips are also on show, enabling visitors to find out more about the practical suitability of the everyday items displayed here. Ambiente exhibitors can apply to have their products included in Solutions until 18 November. The market launch of a submitted product should not date further back than one year.

Application deadline for the Ethical Style Guide: 7 November 2019

Sustainability can show itself in many different ways, including resource-friendly manufacturing, the preservation of traditional manufacturing techniques and also the fair and caring treatment of everyone involved in production. The Ethical Style Guide will be of special interest to anyone wanting to find products and innovative approaches that excel in matters of sustainability. Ambiente exhibitors can apply for entries in the catalogue until 7 November. The selection will be made by the Ethical Style Expert Jury, a committee composed of independent members. Successful applicants will be listed in the catalogue for three years. In addition, their stands will be marked with an Ethical Style label.

Application deadline for the Contract & HoReCa Guide: 15 November 2019

For HoReCa and contract business buyers the most important requirements along with product quality are special terms of delivery and after-sales services. Whether trade visitors are looking for front-of-house solutions or customised interior designs, the Contract & HoReCa Guide has exactly the right partners to meet their needs. Moreover, their exact hall locations can be found in the guide, and each stand is appropriately marked. The exhibitors listed in the guide range from prestigious specialists to small artisan workshops with experience in implementing high-quality product lines or specially tailored concepts. Exhibitors can apply for a listing in the Guide until mid-November. Each application must include three reference projects. However, Ambiente exhibitors who featured in previous guides do not need to re-apply.

Ambiente 2020 will be held from 7 to 11 February 2020.
