“Ambiente is unique, not only because of its size, but also because it is a platform of inspirational ideas for trends and design, and sets the tone for the whole sector–and, indeed, on a world scale. The clear layout of the product groups at Ambiente keeps distances short and makes it very easy to find your way around,” said Thomas Kastl, director of Ambiente Dining.
The show, scheduled for Feb. 12-16, offers both trend-oriented and practical items for the kitchen and dining room. Fiskars, Fissler, Le Creuset, KitchenAid, WMF and Zwilling are among the brands that will make introductions. Small electrical appliances, barbecues and barbecue accessories are an important part of the product range in Halls 3.0 and 3.1, Messe Frankfurt said. In the Kitchen Trends sections in Halls 1.1 and 1.2, visitors will find utensils for use in the bar and for preparing and serving drinks, as well as kitchen accessories and dinnerware geared to younger consumers.
In Halls 5.0, 5.1, 6.0 and 6.1, the Houseware & Storage group offers solutions and products to make everyday life a little easier from companies such as Brabantia, Fackelmann, Hailo, Leifheit, Lock & Lock, Rotho, Tescoma and Wesco.
Ambiente offers buyers opportunities for volume contracts. In the product groups Passage Table & Decoration, Passage Table & Kitchen Select and Passage Dining & Houseware, volume suppliers with experience in the export trade will present an international selection of products.
