At Salice, Messezentrum Bad Salzuflen, Halle 20.
At ZOW 2022, the supplier trade fair for the furniture industry and interior design, the sector will finally come together again to develop solutions to current and future challenges.
The face-to-face discussions that take place there will pave the way for fresh innovations. ZOW in February 2022, is the perfect setting to give new momentum to the whole world of furniture.
“We have seen product innovations from so many companies being showcased digitally at interzum @home this year, and the time has now come to experience those products first-hand at ZOW 2022 in East Westphalia,” says Maik Fischer, director of ZOW.
ZOW represents an innovative concept that promotes fresh approaches. Every two years, the groundwork for new product careers in the furniture industry is laid here. As a result, ZOW provides an ideal platform for companies who are achieving success with this type of approach, and for visitors looking for precisely the kind of “hidden solutions” those companies are offering, in order to stay one step ahead of the competition. The event targets exhibitors who develop unusual products for the market, as well as those who have previously catered only to select niches, or who come from other industries or sectors.
The companies exhibiting at ZOW 2022 range from established global players like Häfele, Salice, Interprint, Impress and Rheinspan/Saviola right through to “start-ups.”
While work has already started on planning the layout of the trade fair in Cologne, and stand confirmations are being sent out, the team led by Matthias Pollmann and Maik Fischer is still in numerous talks with potential national and international exhibitors.
“The decision as to whether to visit the trade fair is being taken much more spontaneously and at shorter notice than usual; and in that sense, the effects of the coronavirus pandemic continue to be felt. We already have a decent number of exhibitors registered, but we’ll be out and about for a few more weeks talking to companies,” says Fischer.
