Initiative Furnier + Natur at the imm cologne 2019: Plenty of interest in the carpaccio of wood

Bad Honnef/Cologne. For the second time, Initiative Furnier + Natur (IFN) presented itself at the imm cologne 2019 international furniture trade fair, in Hall 3.1, in the Pure Editions area. “We were able to draw clear attention to our presence on the internet and in social media with the eye-catching lettering furnier.de. We showed a new sound-absorbing wall panel made of veneer and very fashionable furniture with veneer, as well as our very popular LED veneer books. We held many interesting discussions with trade visitors who had travelled to the fair from all over the world. They happily included many young fair visitors, who are interested in veneer due to their training or study”, said the IFN Secretary Ursula Geismann. Because in future, as part of its “VeneerStories” (FurnierGeschichten') campaign, the IFN would also like to offer students of design, architecture and interior design even more opportunities to present their work. Employees of the IFN member companies europlac, BaltiSpoon and Frischeis were also available at the stand to answer technical questions of interested visitors.

Several copies of the attractive LED veneer books were once again raffled off during the trade visitor days. The campaigns were documented on the IFN Facebook page at www.facebook.com/Furniergeschichten . Initiative Furnier + Natur will once again be presenting itself at its parent trade fair, the interzum in Cologne, from 21 to 24 May 2019. Here we will be showing even more exhibits made of and with veneer on a large stand. The industry get-together at the IFN stand will take place on Thursday, 23 May 2019, at its traditional time directly after the end of the trade fair.
