Why Your Visit Is Worth It
ZOW has performed an incredible role for the furniture industry in the German region and is only on an upward trajectory, which gives you ample reasons to justify your presence. The key detail at ZOW is quality, while at the same time maintaining a tight focus. Here is the data:
- 180+ international exhibitors from 17 countries showcased at the event;
- 3900+ international trade visitors from 80+ countries made the trip;
- 12,000+ square metres of exhibition space used.
ZOW has been in operation since 1995 and the trade fair targets a B2B audience as a meeting place for suppliers to the furniture industry and senior buyers. The exhibition’s been a benchmark event for Germany and the surrounding region for decades and has been steadily growing to the point that now it’s under the management of Kölnmesse. This has also caused for the event to move to a biennial format from its original annual schedule, so that ZOW could alternate with INTERZUM. The product range is extensive and features furniture coatings, furniture components, furniture feet, furniture fabrics, furniture locks, furniture upholstery, cabinets, drawers, leather, lighting systems, mattresses, interior decoration, laminates, wastepaper baskets, work sheets and household appliances among others.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
ZOW remains geographically bound to Germany as it first emerged as a platform to service the furniture industry in the country and the surrounding region, which is why only 61 exhibitors from last edition. The same can be seen in trade visitors with only 27% of all visitors to come last edition were foreign nationals. Nevertheless, ZOW is a thriving marketplace where you can seek out new partners and negotiate exciting deals. The exhibition is built upon securing the successful meeting and negotiation between supply and demand.
