The „TALKS“ program element in Hall 9, staged between the various „FRAMING TRENDS“ display modules, will feature internationally renowned professionals such as designer Sebastian Herkner and the architect Ester Bruzkus speaking about the connections between architecture, interior design and product design. On each of the four days of the trade fair top-name architects, planners and designers, along with some interesting new talents, will contribute to the „Talks“ program and present innovative projects and fresh new ideas that illustrate the key role of flooring in interior design. After their presentations these experts will exchange their personal views and ideas with the audience in a chaired „MEET&GREET“ round of discussions.
Hall 13 will once again be home to “Treffpunkt Handwerk”, the show’s central meeting hub for interior furnishers, parquet installers and floor layers, painters and varnishers. Themed “Moving Ahead”, it is a place where flooring practitioners can take time out to compare notes with their peers, try out innovative new products and discover the latest flooring application and installation technologies – including solutions from trusted names, like Küberit, Eugen Lägler, Mapei, Muylle-Facon, Neuhofer, Selit and Wolff. The event also features a forum (stand C59), where they can develop their professional knowledge at specialist lectures and pick up practical tips and tricks that will help them “move ahead” and get the job done. On all four days of the show, subject specialists will take the stage at the forum to report on current issues and trends in the flooring trades and present new ways of doing things.
