interzum forum italy: Koelnmesse's new biennial event debuts in June 2024
Koelnmesse  announces a new biennial event for furniture manufacturers and the interior design industry: interzum forum italy.

The event, to be hosted on 6 and 7 June 2024 at the Fiera di Bergamo exhibition centre, will present a stimulating conference format with an accompanying exhibition area specifically designed for Italy and its neighbouring countries, but also for other major European markets.


interzum forum italy: ideal platform for the Italian market

interzum forum italy is designed for all sectors related to furniture production and interior design. It addresses a broad spectrum of manufacturers, specialist retailers, architects, interior designers, decorators, contractors and consultants.

The innovative format focuses on a rich two-day programme of high-level conferences, which will offer insights into the latest trends, the most interesting innovations and current market developments. The congress part will be accompanied by an exhibition focusing on interzum's product segments such as offices, upholstery and textile machinery, as well as surfaces and accessories.

Matthias Pollmann, Vice President of Koelnmesse, says that 'interzum forum is an ideal platform for the Italian market, one of the most important in the industry. Starting from the needs of the Italian market, many of the central issues of the industry can and will find new solutions here in the competition of ideas and innovations'.


New meeting and business opportunities

The event offers interesting content and an innovative format that enhances the conference element. Thomas Rosolia, Managing Director of Koelnmesse Italy, emphasises that 'the wide range of conferences, networking and business opportunities, combined with workshops and matchmaking, will make interzum forum italy the ideal place to discuss current industry trends. The event will provide the perfect forum to shape the innovations that are driving the rapid transformation of markets and that have a significant impact on the production chains and the skills needed for the furniture manufacturing and interior design sectors.


In Cologne in odd-numbered years, in Bergamo in even-numbered years

Starting in June 2024, interzum forum italy will be held in even-numbered years, in synergy with interzum Cologne, which is held in odd-numbered years.

"interzum 2023 in Cologne demonstrated the importance of being closer to companies by creating opportunities for discussion and providing in-depth analysis of key topics for the industry," adds Thomas Rosolia. "Now we are responding to the need for a streamlined and visitor-friendly format in Italy, one of the leading furniture producing countries in Europe. In the years when interzum will not be hosted in Cologne, we will offer industry professionals a mix of a congress with topical, high-level topics and an exhibition section."


Fiera di Bergamo: an established exhibition centre

The Fiera di Bergamo was chosen by Koelnmesse for interzum forum italy because it is a well-established exhibition centre, strategically located in the heart of Lombardy and equipped with excellent infrastructural connections. In fact, travel to and from the exhibition centre is easy and convenient, allowing participants to enjoy the two-day event to the full, concentrating their energies on business opportunities.
