While trade shows around the world are facing difficult times getting exhibits to show and attendees to come to the show, the kitchen industry is no difference – the Germany Cologne kitchen show, is pretty much done, the US KBIS last show, in Atlanta, had days with more exhibitors then attendees, walking down the aisles and many other shows that emerged in recent years (such The K&B Luxury show) are all history.
In spite of the above, one small show in Munich, Germany, is fighting to establish itself as an authority in the industry. Since 2008, around March/April, they have been meeting for a couple of days, in Munich Germany, in a trade show format, with stand exhibits and industry panel discussions.
For 2010, küchentrends (Kitchen Trends) will be featuring a few new products, together with brands that have been displaying in previous years, covering more than 6,000 square meters of exhibit space. True, 6,000 square meters is approx the size of one or two big stand at Eurocucina, in Milan, but we can all agree that size doesn’t matter, even when it comes to kitchen trade shows – level of exhibits and quality of the content and information/ideas obtained is key to a successful trade show.
We wish küchentrends all the best and who knows, this may be the next big industry trade show…
