From this year, Frankfurt’s Tendence show will be split into three separate trade fairs – Living, Giving and Collectione, plus the Passage section.
The show, which runs from July 3 to 7, has a strong design-led focus and is the first event in the international calendar of fairs for the second half of the year.
Visitors to the Living fair will find home accessories, home textiles, pictures, frames and lighting, while Giving concentrates on the gift trade. In the Passage section overseas exhibitors present a diverse range of tabletop, kitchen and household products, plus home accessories and gifts.
Collectione presents trends for the coming spring and summer seasons and is aimed at volume buyers.
Tendence will also host a variety of trend presentations, including one from Studio Doshi/Levien of London. Talents will showcase up-and-coming designers, while Next will allow young international companies with a design background to develop business contacts.
