Dr. Lucas Heumann, Trade Associations of the Wood and Furniture Industry, Herford
I am extremely pleased to be in a position today to announce to the international public that “living kitchen” will be held in Cologne as an international kitchen trade fair concurrent with the International Furniture Fair in 2011. A major strategic aim of the German kitchen furniture sector is to present the full scope of its capabilities to an international public. The partnership that we had been seeking for a number of years is now in place, and for that I would also like to congratulate Koelnmesse and in particular the team headed by Mr. Haubold, which I feel did some tremendous work. If we work as well together next year on the marketing of the trade fair, I am confident that LivingKitchen 2011 will be a success from start to finish for the entire international public and the German kitchen furniture sector, in particular.

My hope for January 2011 in Cologne is that the theme of kitchens can be re-established at the trade fair and reinvigorated with new life through the collaboration between Koelnmesse and the leading companies in the industry. Various things must happen if this is to succeed: Firstly, a number of the leading kitchen furniture makers must become enthusiastic about this trade fair; secondly, the electric appliances industry must be brought on board; and thirdly, foreign visitors, specifically a large number of foreign trade visitors and also foreign exhibitors must be attracted. Those are the aims. They can be achieved if Koelnmesse, on the one hand, and the major players in the industry, on the other hand, can get in step on this.
