Stockholm Furniture Fair and Northern Light Fair Fully Booked
From 4 - 8 February 2009 around 750 exhibitors will be presenting their products on an exhibition area of over 56,500 m². In spite of the financial crisis the fair has been booked out for a long time now, and there is a long waiting list - no wonder, because for a number of years now Stockholm has established itself as the most important furniture fair for Northern Europe, putting Copenhagen under serious pressure in the process. By clearly dividing the halls into segments, excellent curator work with Greenhouse as a platform for young designers, and the annual special show, which this year is devoted to the Dutch designer Ineke Hans, Stockholm has positioned itself decisively and successfully.
"We're now looking at what we can do in terms of content to further increase knowledge among our main target groups of visitors. These are architects and interior designers, as well as furniture and lighting retailers. For example, we'll be arranging more talks and seminars than before, and will have an exhibition on store concepts," said Charlotte Wiking, project manager for business development and international relations at Stockholm Furniture Fair / Northern Light Fair.
For the first time the Stockholm Furniture Fair / Northern Light Fair is organising an exhibition aimed specifically at retailers. In Hall B interior designer Lotta Agaton is putting together a combined exhibition of lighting and furniture for the purpose of providing the retailers with inspiration and know-how, backed up by practical advice on designing their store concepts.
For the first time Architonic, too, will be in Stockholm with its new Concept Space II. In our next Newsletter we'll be reporting in detail about the design event in Stockholm from 4 - 8 February 2009.
All those who register by 25.01.2009 will also have the opportunity to win one of 300 free tickets to Stockholm. We look forward to welcoming you at our stand!
