Both the approximately 70 exhibitors and the over 1,000 trade visitors were very satisfied with the outcome of the premiere of the newest player on the Danish furniture fair scene – Trends & Traditions – which took place on March 26 in the exhibition building Lokomotivværkstedet (The Train Workshop) in Copenhagen.
There was particular satisfaction with the fair’s open and transparent structure that did not allow walls or signs, but rather let the furniture itself being in the center. This created an atmosphere that a the same time was relaxed unpretentious and offering a high professional level.
“We seem to have an unmet need for a pure marketplace for design and contract furniture in Denmark. And by doing it on a non-profit basis, we can also make allowance for the small companies, who usually cannot afford participation in trade fairs,” says marketing and development director Thomas Wiberg from furniture company Holmris + Flexform ,who was the instigator and organizer of Trends & Traditions.
He promises that Trends & Traditions will be repeated in 2016 and that there will be an extra effort made to accommodate the furniture companies, who due to lack of space could not be present at the premiere.
