Germany is the second largest market for Spain’s office furniture exports. In 2015, the exports of Spanish office furniture amounted to 19,2 million euros (+3.8%), which represented the 11.1% of Spain’s total exports.
The excellent performances of Spanish furniture in the German market, which is also a hub for other Central Europe markets, have encouraged a rising number of Spanish brands to increase their participation in the main business platforms of the area: IMM Cologne, Orgatec and Light + Building in Frankfurt. Main aim of their strategy is to establish new business collaborations with local professionals of the interior design and contract industry and consolidate their position in the market.
As in previous years, the fair expects more than 50,000 opinion-shaping trade visitors that will include founders of start-up companies, dealers and decision makers from SMEs, planners, architects and interior designers as well as executives from the Procurement and Human Resources departments of large corporations.
