Ambiente: Talents wanted!

Jul 6, 2017

Designers are applying for places at the world’s biggest consumer goods hub until 27 September

An innovative product idea and excellent design quality are a gift – but they are often not enough. To turn a smart product into a lucrative success story, a young designer or recent graduate needs to have two essential resources, in particular: contacts and attention.

The best way for a creative mind to attract these resources is through Ambiente. It is the world’s biggest consumer goods hub and procurement tool number one in international trade, where companies are continually looking out for innovations and eye catchers. The same can be said for manufacturers who have the industrial potential to turn very small series into entire production lines.

Talents is a promotional programme through which Ambiente brings together supply and demand in a number of prominent zones. This is where selected designers will be presenting themselves and their products from 9 to 13 February 2018. They will also benefit from free exhibition space.

We are looking for designers in the areas of tableware and dining, interior design and fashion accessories. Applications with informative product details and photographic material are welcome until 27 September 2017:

Each talent zone forms a vital part of the Dining Hall 4.0, the Loft of Hall 11.0 and the Fashion Accessories product group in Hall 9.2.

Further details and an online application form are available at:

Up-and-coming designers will be presenting themselves and their products in the Talents zone of Ambiente.
