Interior Lifestyle show from June 3

Dec '08
The next Interior Lifestyle will hold on 3- 5 June 2009, at Tokyo International Exhibition Centre, also known as Tokyo Big Sight. Drawing upon the success of the Messe Frankfurt world-renowned Heimtextil and Ambiente brands bringing a combined fair concept to the Japanese market, the fair has become the paramount destination for those involved in the home décor industry and has established an exclusive opportunity for serious buyers and sellers of a wide spectrum “modern living” products.

Some of the main products typically presented at this fair include table, kitchen & house ware products (glassware, ceramics, cutlery, kitchen tools and machines, household articles and tools), gift items (arts and crafts, florist requisites, room fragrance, candles, stationary and paper goods), interior products (furniture, lightings, interior planets), home textiles (table and kitchen linens, bathroom textiles, sleep systems, furnishing fabrics) and design & style (home fashion collection, design products, products for contract business and product design).

The previous Interior Lifestyle in 2008 again managed to set two new records at once: 27,390 visitors from 36 countries and regions came to the Tokyo Big Sight throughout the three-day period to find out about what is currently on offer in the home décor industry – more than ever before in the history of Interior Lifestyle.

So it comes as no surprise that the total of 652 exhibitors from 31 countries and regions – a new record of exhibitor number in its history – ended up being very satisfied with the lively and productive atmosphere, not to mention the high professionalism of the visitors. As the fair is growing year by year, next year's show is expected to be held even more successful: the organizer is expecting some around 700 exhibitors and 30,000 visitors to the fair 2009.

Interior Lifestyle attracts highly-motivated professionals who visit the fair for purpose of products purchasing and trend information gathering. According to the Visitor Questionnaire of the fair 2008, around 65% of the visitors made their way to the fair ground “to find new products/ contacts” and “to see latest trend”. 22% of them visited the fair “to place orders” and “to prepare orders”, and 10 % of them came “To strengthening relationship with current customers”.

Around 70% of all visitors were either decision-makers or influential people in product purchasing. Those business minded visitors gave the fair 2008 high marks and 96% of them answered that they will definitely or probably visit the fair for 2009.

The visitors with a clear purpose to purchase products created active business at the fair. This was reflected in the result of the exhibitors' survey. 88% of the exhibitors answered either “excellent” or “satisfied” for “the result of the fair” and what is more, 99% of the exhibitors said either that they will definitely exhibit at the next Interior Lifestyle or they are considering exhibiting at the next fair in 2009. The key factor behind such excellent evaluation seems to be both the quantity and the quality of the visitors.
