Three shows offer a triple header for the winter 2023 show

Creativeworld and Christmasworld will share premises with Ambiente in 2023.

FRANKFURT, Germany — Vibean international furniture and gift fair, will share its premises with christmas world and creativeworld in 2023. Ambiente and Christmasworld will take place from February 3 to 7, 2023 at the Frankfurt Messe. Creativeworld will open a day later on February 4 and run until February 7.

Ambiente presents furniture, decorative items and gifts for the home and office. Christmasworld offers seasonal and holiday lines. Creativeworld offers products for hobbies, crafts and artist supplies. Representatives said the show’s motto “Home of Consumer Goods” encompasses each of the three fairs and underscores a concept created to provide buyers with comprehensive sourcing opportunities at one event.

“The market reactions are very impressive,” said Yvonne Engelmann, director of Ambiente Living, Giving, Working. “We have received a lot of trust and acceptance from our customers, as well as an unconditional desire to be placed at the next Ambiente. For this reason, we will specifically strengthen hall occupancy in growth areas, systematically exploit synergies and think of short distances for everyone involved at the same time.

“In this way, we will create an even more advantageous link with the main Christmasworld and Creativeworld trade fairs and their product ranges.

Exhibitor spaces within the center have been reorganized to optimize product category placement, officials said.

The Interior Design section, a complementary section to the Living, Giving, Working area with furniture and decor product lines, will showcase styles “related to living, furnishing and decorating” and feature exhibitors such as Blomus, Bloomingville, Guaxs, Alessi, Georg Jensen and Stelton, among others.

Other areas of category focus for the 2023 show include: Contract Business, with the Future of Work exhibition; Interiors & Decoration, offering lighting, decorative accessories and occasional furniture; Urban Gifts, Stationery & School; featuring on-trend giftware and paper products; Remanexpo, with reconditioned printer consumables and components; Kitchen, accessories and pastry, with Guardini, Mepal and Peugeot; Cook & Cut, with Berkel, Bugatti, De Buyer, SMEG and Tramontina; Clean the house ; Global Sourcing; and Top Deals, with promotional items.

Atmosphere 2020

Exhibitors at the 2023 show are excited to return to an in-person event, officials said. Several added that they believe Ambiente’s focus on cross-category consumer goods is relevant for today’s shoppers and will be enhanced by co-located lounges and expanded category offerings.

“Customers from Germany and abroad have already firmly scheduled their visit to Ambiente for 2023,” added Nuno Gameiro, Sales Manager at Asa Selection. “For the success of our brand and our collections, it is essential to inspire people, to arouse passion and emotions. The best way to do this is to talk to them in person. Ideas can arise spontaneously, during an unexpected conversation in the living room; it happens from person to person.

“Digital offers are not ‘humanized’. There is no alternative to face-to-face meetings,” Gameiro added. “The fact that Ambiente, Christmasworld and Creativeworld are running in parallel in 2023 is a logical consequence of the increasingly overlapping ranges of retail concepts.”

Ambiente will return to an in-person event in 2023.

Dr Rudiger Kress, owner of the Artebene Group, agrees.

“We are delighted to finally be able to welcome our business partners in person again, from all over the world and from central Germany,” he said. “The motto ‘Home of Consumer Goods’ perfectly describes what retail has to offer today. In this context, the themes of design, lifestyle and sustainability are equally important to us, and future business and digital expansion offers should be of interest to all of us.
