2011 has got off to a successful start for the furniture industry. The good mood in the industry is also reflected in the registrations for the sleep area at imm cologne. Overall, around 80 percent of the hall space has already been rented.
“It’s fun to see that we have managed to make imm cologne the most important trade fair for my industry. No matter who we talk to these days, companies are looking forward to imm cologne expectantly. We have not only been able to gain new exhibitors for Hall 9, but many exhibitors have also expanded their space”, says Dr Ulrich Leifeld, Managing Director of the Professional Association of the Mattress Industry, headquartered in Essen, commenting on current registrations.

The princess in the fairy tale “The Princess and the Pea” by the Brothers Grimm had to sleep on twenty mattresses and twenty feather eiderdowns in order to prove her noble birth – clear proof of the fact that refinement in sleeping existed even back in the golden age.
In the 21st century, this phenomenon is highly developed and different throughout the world. Visitors to imm cologne can experience this for themselves from 19 to 25 January 2009. In hall 9 of the international Cologne furniture trade fair, under the sub-heading “sleep”, a market segment that is exemplary in its completeness and professionalism will be on display.
