Globally United: The international consumer goods market finally starts again in Frankfurt in 2022

12 Oct 2021

It's time for personal encounters and inspiration at local trade fairs! The trade needs new impulses and first-class contacts, and trade fairs are the most important platform for acquiring new customers. Ambiente will be showcasing the most important themes across the entire range of consumer goods in the Dining, Living and Giving segments from February 11 to 15, 2022.

As the leading international trade show for the consumer goods industry, Ambiente is the ideal platform for marketing innovations and products internationally. "Full of anticipation, optimism and with a great deal of commitment, we are looking forward to the global industry gathering in February. Retailers need personal encounters, inspiration and haptic product experiences - we offer the industry all of this with our trade fairs. Ambiente is the hub around which the consumer goods industry revolves and we are very much looking forward to finally welcoming the industry back to Frankfurt," says Philipp Ferger, Vice President Consumer Goods Fairs.

At Ambiente, everything revolves around the themes of tabletop, kitchen and housewares as well as giving, living and furnishing in 9 halls on 20 hall levels. Renowned dining brands such as Alessi, ASA Selection, Fiskars, GEFU, RAK, Robbe & Berking, Steelite, Stelton and Victorinox will be presenting their latest product ideas at the upcoming Ambiente. Numerous industry giants from the living and giving sector - including exhibitors such as Blomus, Broste Copenhagen, Cor Mulder, Dome Deco, Eichholtz, Gasper, Gilde Handwerk Macrander, Gries Deco or Lambert will present plenty of inspiration and innovations.

Global sourcing under one roof

Against the background of past developments, the space requirements for the Global Sourcing exhibition area have changed for Ambiente 2022. Accordingly, Global Sourcing will in future be concentrated on all five hall levels of Hall 10. This will make it even easier for visitors to find contact with manufacturers by the shortest route.

Events and highlights

The Ambiente supporting program gives visitors a special look at consumer trends and the latest designs. For HoReCa, the Contract Business and Ethical Style, Ambiente is an important annual marketplace. With the expansion of the Dining section to include an independent platform for the hotel, restaurant and catering sector (HoReCa), Ambiente 2020 set fresh impulses. In 2022, visitors can again expect an independent HoReCa hall as well as top international speakers. For some years now, contract business has also been gaining strongly in importance. Ambiente is therefore an important hotspot for professional buyers from the living and giving sectors.

The special interest program Ethical Style, which draws attention to manufacturers of sustainable or ethically produced consumer goods, is also an important part of the supporting program. Trends pointing the way to the future will again be shown in 2022 by the trend presentation by design studio Stilbüro bora.herke.palmisano on behalf of Ambiente. Buyers looking for original product ideas are in the right place at the Talents areas. Young and as yet unknown designers will be presenting their contemporary designs and creations at Arts & Crafts in Hall 4.0 and Interior Design in Hall 8.0. At the upcoming Ambiente, the special Solutions presentation will showcase a selection of innovative problem solvers and how they creatively make our everyday lives easier.

Additional digital offers intensify networking

A supplementary online platform for Ambiente increases the international reach for exhibiting companies and trade visitors alike and also promotes new contacts, networking opportunities and knowledge transfer. Digital exchange via chat or video is possible as early as one week before and two weeks after the event. Trend presentations and selected trade fair highlights from the supporting program are streamed live and can be experienced digitally. This means that the trade show highlights can also be experienced by visitors from overseas who will not be able to travel in 2022 due to travel restrictions.

The videos will be made available afterwards on the Conzoom Solutions knowledge platform. The Nextrade order and data management portal is another already established digital service from Messe Frankfurt. Nextrade enables 24/7 digital business relationships between retailers and suppliers. As the first digital B2B marketplace for Home & Living, the platform digitally brings together supply and demand from the entire industry, creating great added value for both sides.

Safe trade fair visit thanks to safety and hygiene concept

Messe Frankfurt's hall and infrastructure is not only unique, but also an important component of the safety and hygiene concept. In order to make personal encounters at Ambiente as safe as possible for all participants, Messe Frankfurt uses various Frankfurt relies on various control mechanisms. These go far beyond the measures taken in the public sector and make the Frankfurt's exhibition halls excellent and safe meeting places even in times of pandemic. The measures include 100 percent fresh air supply, generous design of halls and entrances to maintain safety distances, intensive cleaning measures, a hygiene-adapted catering concept, and the proven wearing of mouth and nose protection.

According to the current state of affairs, entry into Germany is possible for business travelers from almost all countries without quarantine. The prerequisite is a business reason, which is given with the participation. In addition, visitors require proof of complete vaccination or recovery, or a current antigen test.
