The world“s biggest consumer-goods spring fair, Ambiente will have a brand new look at its next edition on 15 to 19 February 2002 in Frankfurt, Germany. One of the novelties will be the new two-storey Hall 3 and the Forum next to the Festhalle. Following the trends of an international consumer-goods market which is constantly on the move, the Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre has now expanded to 322,000 sq.m. These new features were already present during the Tendence fair in August 2001. The Fair will still host its three big sections: Tavola & Cucina, Prsent & Carat and, with a new name, Domus & Gallery. There are ten trade fairs within these sections and various special shows. Tavola & Cucina has been reorganized into three trade fairs: Tavola; Tavola Top Trade; and Kitchen & Housewares. This year“s new feature, Kitchen Trends, will be presenting the latest in kitchen articles, bar accessories and kitchen linen, while high-grade foodstuffs will be on offer as particular giftware at the Gourmet-Shop. Prsent & Carat consists of four trade fairs and covers 12 exhibition halls altogether: Gifts Unlimited; Carat with Carat Creativ; Forum Arts & Craft; and Passage. The three trade fairs of Domus and Gallery are: Bel Etage, previously called Country Home and Classic Interior; Loft, previously Interior Design; and Gallery. Both exhibitors and visitors will have a chance to discover the latest trends and new ideas at Ambiente“s special shows, such as Talents; the interactive Laboratorium, organized by the Austrian EOOS design group; TableTrends; Design Plus; and Plagiarius.
