Why Your Visit Is Worth It
You will be happy to know that Orgatec is a first-rate procurement platform with access to all major markets in the entire world. If there’s one stage to elevate your brand and go global, then it is definitely this. You’ll be generating sales leads and direct orders by the dozens and here’s why:

Orgatec has spanned over half a century first as a trade fair that specifically catered to a smaller German market for the office furniture sector back in 1953. The event operated under a different name, which changed several times as the scope of the fair grew to incorporate beyond furniture but also all other related products, equipment and appliances needed for the office. The biennial trade fair now offers trade visitors the entire value chain in Kölnmesse. We’re talking furnishing for office and facilities, organizational planning systems, accessories, IT telecommunications, A/V technology, flooring and lighting. All these trends come alive together and facilitate sales in great numbers, especially if you take advantage of the support program. The Trend Forum is one of the most popular features!
Who Are You Going to Meet?
Orgatec admits both trade visitors and members of the general public, which gives exhibitors a chance to gauge interest from customers at all levels of the consumer chain. Organizers reveal a significant growth among all major groups of international trade visitors (it should be noted that the fair attracts significantly more international visitors compared to German visitors) – European countries, North America, Central and South America, Japan and India as well. It should be noted that a majority of the trade visitors are also senior decision makers in their companies. The same divide applies to exhibitors as well with 75% of companies coming from outside Germany.
