The global market meets up at Ambiente, the leading international trade fair. In areas such as tableware, kitchenware, decoration, concepts for living spaces and furnishing accessories, buyers will find a range of products and services that is unique worldwide.

4,700 exhibitors provide a comprehensive overview of the market at Ambiente, and some 270 of them will bear the Contract Business label to identify them. This means that they have demonstrable experience and expertise in equipping and furnishing commercial projects such as hotels, restaurants and cruise ships.

The fact that this particular market segment is a growth area in many countries is reflected in the range of products and services at Ambiente. In consequence, for designers, furnishings experts and interior architects, as well as for buyers in the hotel and restaurant business, Ambiente has become even more important as an international trend platform.

Buyers in the HoReCa world will find an attractive spectrum of top brands in Frankfurt. For the first time, BHS Tabletop AG will be presenting the Bauscher, Schönwald and Tafelstern brands on three separate stands. Moreover, other well-known companies such as Dibbern, Porzellanfabriken Christian Seltmann, Rak Porcelain Europe, Spiegelau, Steelite International, Waterford Wedgwood and Zieher have come to symbolise the high-quality and international range of goods on offer at Ambiente for the HoReCa market.

In the field of interior design, companies like Boltze, Chilewich, Deknudt, DPI, Eichholtz, Exotica Cor Mulder, Fink, Guaxs, Kare, Lambert and Scholtissek will be exhibiting a broad selection of high-end products and concepts for the design and decoration of commercial premises.

The relevant suppliers are all identified by the Contract Business label at the trade fair and, as a result, are easily recognised. The Contract Guide covers all the exhibitors from the contract sector and includes their contact details. It is available free of charge throughout the Exhibition Centre for the duration of Ambiente.

Thanks to a digital 'matchmaking platform', which includes limitations to access and verification procedures for suppliers, company information can be looked up in advance and appointments for personal contact at the show can be agreed. Further information on this is available here.
