This article will be in English as I met quite a few international designer and sales people coming from Finland, the Netherlands and France. Just a few words to introduce the fair „Tendence“. It is located in the centre of Frankfurt presenting the areas Giving and Living. In the Living section you will find interior design and decorative elements like. At that time of the year you see there Christmas decoration. The Giving section is all about gifts, especially for the next Christmas season. Frankly said, quite a challenge with 30 degrees outside.
Apart of typical gifts there is another area Carat for jewellery, but also personal accessories like bags, scarves and more.
In fact I only managed to see parts of hall 9, the section for Giving and especially here the Carat for jewellery, Ecostyle and talents area.
Ecostyle covers sustainable consumer goods and designer products. Most of them do have a „green“ certificate, which means that the products had been produced under social and ecological fair conditions.
The talents area is a specific section where young designers and professionals could present their ideas respectively products to potential buyers. It provides access to new sales channels and could give valuable feedback. This program is being sponsored. So a good chance for newcomers.
I will introduce some of the newcomers within the next blogposts.
Some impressions of the Tendence….
