ZOW suspended for the time being

interzum: Living spaces of tomorrow - central industry event worldwide

The future is starting again with interzum for furniture production and interior design on 9 May 2023 in Cologne, because no other industry event in the world provides impulses for the global furniture supplier industry in such a needs and future-oriented fashion as interzum - ZOW 2022 is suspended for the time being. Decision makers, opinion leaders, multipliers and trendsetters from all over the world keep up with the innovations in the sector, seek out and find new and inspiring ideas and meet valuable established and new contacts.

Mar 28 2022

For over 25 years, exhibitors at ZOW - Supplier Show for the Furniture Industry and Interior Design in one of the world's largest clusters of the furniture industry have been providing important impetus to the kitchen, upholstery and home furnishings industry with their new products. The automotive industry, the caravan, ship or wagon construction, and the store fitting and interior design industries have also always benefited directly from this. 
The last two years, most of which have been marked by the pandemic, have led to changes in society as a whole. The entire industry is in a multidimensional change on its way to the NEW NORMAL. Accordingly, the development of ZOW and of interzum as a whole is characterized by the industry's focus on interzum as the world's leading trade fair and, at the same time, as the central German platform. 
As a result of this disruptive development triggered by the corona pandemic, Koelnmesse has decided to suspend ZOW at the Bad Salzuflen site, which is scheduled for May 3 to 5, 2022, for the time being. 

interzum provides the answers to the questions of the future 

interzum is the meeting place for the international furniture industry and interior design. Like no other event on the scene, the trade fair represents the entire spectrum of the global market. This gives exhibitors and trade visitors alike the chance to gain an overview of the industry's most important innovations and trends - all in just one event. Megatrends such as advancing digitalization, steadily increasing individualization and the great desire for even more sustainability are influencing the furniture industry and its products. Furnishing innovations must become more environmentally friendly and at the same time more networked and personal. 
In three themed trend forums, interzum will present inspirations in the context of central trends in the furniture and interior design industry. 

  • For example, the forum on "Materials & Nature" will be dedicated to new, innovative and forward-looking materials and manufacturing techniques, 
  • The forum on "Textile & Machinery" will present the most important trends and innovations in mattress production and the associated circular economy. 
  • The knowledge transfer for visitors and exhibitors will be supplemented and enriched by a new format, the interzum Academy: Here, interzum will present a top-class lecture program with visionary content, which will be supplemented by the exhibitor presentations with a strong ready-to-market focus.
