Sometimes called the Cologne Furniture Fair, the imm Cologne (internationale möbelmesse) is one of the major global furniture trade shows. With a staggering 125 000 guests and perhaps 1250 exhibitors from 53 different countries as the standard of attendees, there aren't many that are larger.
Certainly, there are few which are so well regarded. The imm Cologne has been held in one form or another since 1949. Organised by the Verband der Deutschen Möbelindustrie (The German Furniture Industry Group), not only is the event huge and well-run, but it also happens in conjunction with several other events organised by the City of Cologne. These are Interior Design Week and the Cologne Design Week, and there are also talent schools for younger designers and students running concurrently.
Having such major furniture and interior design industry-focussed events all happening at the same time means that attendants (and exhibitors too!) have the opportunity for the maximum amount of networking, promotion and information-gathering all in one place. In recent years, there have also been innovators in materials, fabrics and lighting technology showcasing their wares.
Always held in Koeln Messe, the imm Cologne 2025 will fall on 12.01.2025 - 16.01.2025. If you are a furniture designer, the owner of a furniture design or manufacturing company, furniture retailer or interior designer, the Cologne International Furniture Fair will be one of the must-see events on your professional calendar.
The magnitude of the imm drastically reduces the number of hotel rooms available in Cologne every January. Luckily, that's a problem Room Bites was set up to overcome:
Simply tell us how many rooms you need and in what sort of hotel. We'll handle all of the price comparison and negotiation work on your behalf. What's more, because local accommodation providers know that we speak on behalf of large numbers of clients, we can often work out a better deal than you can solo.
