imm cologne announced the dates for the debut of the new concept: June 4-7, 2023

For 2023, imm cologne is rethinking its strategies and adapting to the demands of a transformed market. The next edition, therefore, will be held June 4-7 and will be the “spring” edition. At the moment, imm cologne spring edition is planned as a one-time edition for 2023; however, the trade fair may have other dates permanently, still unknown.


What we know for sure is that imm cologne spring edition will be a B2B-only event, with end consumers by invitation only. The trade fair will take place over four days, and the focus will be mainly commercial. The German interior design market is one of the most important in Europe; therefore, as Gerald Böse, managing director of Koelnmesse, says, it is crucial to get back to face-to-face meetings. Koelnmesse, in cooperation with the industry associations, has therefore made an analysis of the current situation, and the June dates are the ones that offer participants the most certainty that the event will take place.

The June 2023 special edition of imm cologne is just the first step in the event’s new look. In summer 2023, in fact, Koelnmesse, in cooperation with industry and trade associations, will set future dates for imm cologne and LivingKitchen. Indeed, with the current ever-changing situation, trade shows will increasingly become catalysts for development, not just business platforms.
