Tot ce vrei și ce nu vrei găsești la târgul interzum ce se desfășoară an de an în Germania, la Köln. Este un eveniment dedicat materialelor, componentelor semifinite şi a accesoriilor care intră în structura pieselor de mobilier (plus scule, maşini, utilaje şi instalaţii necesare în fabricile de mobilă). Organizatorii Kölnnmesse a anunțat pentru ediția din 2017 aproape 2000 de expozanți din întreaga lume (150 de state vor fi reprezentate anul acesta la târg). Dintre aceștia, 500 de expozanți vor participa în premieră la interzum. Suprafața s-a adaptat acestei situații – 185.000 metri pătrați.
Perioada de desfășurare pentru interzum 2017 este 16 mai – 19 mai, iar vizitatorii sunt sfătuiți să își rezerve cel puțin două-trei zile pentru a putea vedea suficient de multe standuri încât să descopere inovaţiile cu care companii ca Blum, Salice, Hailo, Setex, Homapal, Stalmot, Samet şi multe altele vin în întâmpinarea specialiştilor. Interzum se adresează tuturor celor implicați în construirea de interioare, producţia de mobilier şi decoraţiuni, pornind de la materiale de bază și ajungând până la servicii, software sau concepte inedite. În același timp, târgul este o sursă de inspirație pe parte tehnică pentru artiștii domeniului interioarelor – arhitecți și designeri. Categoriile de interes sunt: materiale, componente și textile.
Dincolo de partea expozițională, interzum 2017 se anunță cel puțin la fel de interesant în ce privește evenimentele conexe – conferințe, competiții, workshop-uri etc. Anul acesta, tematica principală a evenimentelor conexe este curentul upcycling care a luat deja cu asalt industria mobilei pe plan internațional.
