Ambiente 2020 – Services, Job Exchange & More
Design show, Academy and information and networking platform Ambiente in Frankfurt is more than “just” the world’s largest trade fair for trends and new products at the beginning of the year. Thanks to Conzoom.Solutions, it is now also a job exchange. From 7 to 11 February 2020 Ambiente will be offering its exhibitors and visitors both new and superbly well established services.
Conzoom.Solutions instead of a “war for talents”.
The Messe Frankfurt content platform, launched in summer 2019, now also includes a job exchange that is specially geared to suit the consumer goods industry. With this new service, the practically focused portal supports companies, retailers and commercial agencies in the pinpointed recruitment of skilled staff. Conversely, career starters, skilled professionals and executives will all be able to find their ideal jobs in the industry – quickly and easily. The idea behind the exchange is quite simple: exhibitors advertise vacancies, and jobseekers publish their profiles. This has that benefit that while Conzoom.Solutions is available 365 days a year, 24/7, Ambiente provides both sides with opportunities to meet in person within the inspiring setting of the trade fair.
The wide range of options on the freely accessible website www.conzoom.solutions include the latest studies, trend ideas, workshops and guidance for the point of sale. Another new feature is a separate press section for journalists. In addition, you can access an overview of the entire portfolio of consumer goods exhibitions organised by Messe Frankfurt all over the world.
Special Interest Guides:
Ethical Style, Contract Business and HoReCa: The trade fair offers valuable tools for three of the most important special interest areas at Ambiente. Special exhibitor directories will be available, covering the full range of product and service groups and taking visitors straight to the companies offering the products and solutions they are interested in. Stands are marked to help visitors find their way round. The guides will be available at the trade fair for free, in the form of booklets. However, they can also be called up in advance, via the online exhibitor search. One totally new service will be the HoReCa Academy in the freshly created HoReCa Hall 6.0. From 2020 onwards this dedicated platform will supplement the large product range for front-of-house business which visitors can find here and elsewhere in the Ambiente halls.
Design shows and knowledge programme
Going beyond the globally unique product range of its international exhibitors, Ambiente will also be offering an extensive additional programme. Highlights will include the special shows Ambiente Trends, Focus on Design, Solutions and Plagiarius as well as the German Design Award exhibition. Expertise on current retail trade topics will be offered by the Ambiente Academy at two venues, Halls 9.1 and 11.1. Trade visitors can find an overview of the entire programme online, in the Calendar of Events.
New: Ambiente Podcast
Exciting stories and insights from the global consumer goods industry. The new Ambiente Podcast offers topical issues that are affecting the market as well as exclusive insights provided by international experts. Prestigious designers will be talking at regular intervals about upcoming design trends, and researchers and consultants will be explaining the latest developments and strategies. For Ambiente 2020, listeners can look forward, for instance, to an interview with hospitality expert Pierre Nierhaus and a guided tour of Ambiente trends in Galleria 1. The podcast is available via www.ambiente-podcast.com or the Ambiente Navigator app.
Moving swiftly from hall to hall
Ambiente is the world’s largest consumer goods exhibition and occupies all of Frankfurt’s exhibition grounds. Routes are short thanks to minibuses to all the halls and the Kitchen Houseware Express that connects two product areas: Houseware & Storage (Hall 12) and Kitchen (Hall 3). Visitors to the trade fair can also get around easily on foot, using the roofed-over moving walkways – Via Mobile – which link up all halls.
While Ambiente invites visitors to experience the innovative products of its international exhibitors personally and with all five senses, it also has several year-round digital channels with industry updates and news on dining culture, trends in interior design and innovative products from the world of consumer goods. The Ambiente Blog presents regular reports on particular designers, experts and celebrities as well as on design and lifestyle hotspots. A blog subscription is a good way to make sure you never miss any news. The free Ambiente Newsletter conveniently emails reports and updates on Ambiente straight to your home. And of course Ambiente is also well represented on social media, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
An app-solutely practical tool
To prepare for the event and at the trade fair itself, the free Ambiente Navigator app has become an indispensable tool. The latest update will be available a few weeks before the start of the trade fair and can be downloaded from the App Store and the Google Play Store. Its many practical features include a hall and site map, an exhibitor and product search, an Academy programme, a programme of events and the latest news and tweets on Ambiente. Needless to say, free Wi-Fi will be available throughout the exhibition grounds.
Inexpensive travel to Ambiente
Situated in the heart of Europe, Frankfurt is superbly accessible from all directions, using all means of transport. Anyone coming by public transport will be set down right outside the trade fair, almost right within the exhibition grounds. Car drivers will find convenient parking in the Rebstock multi-storey car park and can enjoy a free shuttle bus service to the West entrance. A really smart way to visit the trade fair is to get an online ticket. The digital Ticket Shop offers all types of tickets at reduced advance sale prices, ranging from day tickets to those valid for the whole trade fair, and the tickets can also be used on public transport (local transport company: RMV) in the local area in and around Frankfurt. All travel information and tips for reaching the exhibition grounds can be found on the Ambiente website.
