Ambiente 2020: The Meeting Place For Market Innovators
The world’s leading trade fair for consumer goods offers some exciting prospects: exhibitors and trade visitors can make first-class contacts, discover the latest developments in the market and in design, and they can experience trends and opportunities in all segments.
Covering three areas – Dining, Living and Giving – Ambiente 2020 will be showcasing the most important aspects of the entire spectrum of consumer goods. From the next edition of Ambiente onwards the Dining area will be expanded to include its own HoReCa hall. Ambiente is the most important marketplace of the year for HoReCa, contract business and ethical style.
From 7 to 11 February 2020 the international consumer goods industry will revolve around this leading global trade fair in all matters of tableware, kitchenware, household goods and leisure as well as gifts, interior decoration and interior design. “Ambiente is the central hub of the entire consumer goods industry. Exhibitors from over 90 countries will be acting as trendsetters in and beyond the year 2020. In addition, we are planning to expand Dining, and so the new HoReCa hall – 6.0 – will be the perfect port of call for national and international decision-makers in the hospitality segment. In this way we want to respond to the specific needs of the industry. “In the future our visitors will be able to focus even more closely on topics at the interface between hospitality, tableware and interior design,” says Nicolette Naumann, Vice President of Ambiente.
In 2019 Frankfurt attracted 4,460 exhibitors from 92 countries, occupying over 306,000 square metres of gross exhibition space and showcasing their new developments and innovations for five days.
HoReCa will have its own hall level in 2020
From Ambiente 2020 onwards Hall 6.0 will be added as a dedicated Dining area that concentrates on exhibitors in the HoReCa sector (hotels, restaurants and catering). An entire hall level, offering an additional, highly focused product range will therefore be occupied by this industry. By coming to Frankfurt, buyers will have a unique opportunity to order products for their front-of-house operations, both from HoReCa and also from the lifestyle collections of Living and Giving exhibitors. Exhibitors who specialise in these channels of distribution can be found in the Contract & HoReCa Guide.
Around 100 exhibitors from the entire world will be represented in the new HoReCa hall.
Another opportunity for visitors to network with one another will be the HoReCa Academy, which will be launched in 2020. International players from the industry will find this complementary programme specially tailored to their needs, with interesting expert presentations, discussion panels and other industry events. Buyers, restaurateurs and designers will therefore have a perfect opportunity to learn about innovations and new ideas and for networking.
Specially tailored solutions for contract business
Contract business, too, has been gaining in importance over the last few years. This makes Ambiente a vital hotspot for professional buyers in the Living and Giving segments as well as for furnishers and designers, including interior designers. Buyers will find plenty of inspiration in the contract business range and, more importantly, they can also find suitable partners for their specific projects there and then. The Contract & HoReCa Guide and the Ambiente Navigator app will help visitors quickly find their bearings around the exhibition grounds, so that they can’t miss the exhibitors that are relevant to them.
Focus on Design
Over the last few years eight partner countries have successfully showcased themselves at Ambiente. Now it’s time for something new. So from 2020 the world’s leading trade fair will be running a special presentation called Focus on Design, featuring outstanding products and providing detailed insights into recent design highlights from a specially selected country. In 2020 Ambiente will start with a young designer nation that has been developing quite rapidly: Brazil. Five different Brazilian design studios, each with its own special identity, will be showcasing their creative output at Galleria 1. In addition, several young Brazilian designers will also be in the Talents areas, where they will present their unique handmade items and limited series.
Global Sourcing has by now developed into a well established part of the international volume business at Ambiente. Global Sourcing Dining exhibitors will be presenting their innovative range on four levels of Hall 10. Hall 10.2 will feature specially selected exhibitors showcasing all the relevant Global Sourcing Dining products under the Premium heading.
2020 events and highlights
The Ambiente complementary programme will give visitors some special insights into consumer trends, technical innovations and the latest designs.
Ambiente 2020 will once again be hosting numerous prestigious award ceremonies. The German Design Award will be presented on the first day of the trade fair, and there will also be an impressive exhibition of the award-winning products to accompany it.
The next Ambiente will be held from 7 to 11 February 2020.
