The Nordic interior design sector's pivotal event

Established in 1960, Formex is a trade fair that targets interior design produced in Scandinavia. It is safe to say that the event is the largest event of its kind for the Nordic region. This is due to it functioning as a tastemaker, where the newest Nordic design trends are first announced and then ready to take on the rest of the world. As popular and desired as the Nordic design is all over the world, there’s no better place to position your products. The product portfolio is extensive and sees everything from painting, furniture, and organic and fair trade products to clothing, jewellery, lamps, decorative items, children's clothing, stuffed animals and toys.

The August physical edition of Formex 2024 will be held from 27.08.2024 to 29.08.2024 at Stockholmsmässan in Stockholm, Sweden.

Formex lasts for about four days and is held annually in Stockholm, Sweden. Because designs are quick to change for the interior sector, editions take place twice a year. First in January to mark the start of the year and then in August. Stockholmsmässan AB performs a dual function as both the organiser and the official host. Visitors are admitted every day from 09:30 am until 18:00 pm. The exception is the last day, which wraps up at 17:00 pm. You will be happy to know that Stockholmsmässan enjoys many connections to the city’s infrastructure. Aside from being easy to reach with a car, there are bus lines and commuter trains that stop at the Älvsjö Station, which is next to the exhibition centre.

  • “Formex is a unique opportunity for us to meet all our fantastic dealers in this elongated country. This is also where we have been discovered over the years by most of our agents and distributors, simply, a meeting place we cannot afford to be without” - Lisa Stevens of Klinta,
  • “Our Location was amazing, which resulted in a substantial sales increase” - Abigail Ahern of Faux Botanicals
  •  “We also exhibit at Formex to find new customers and reach new markets, as there are a lot of international visitors to Formex” - Amelie Råberg of Kid´s Concept

Driving sales is one of the biggest reasons why Formex exists in the first place. It’s a platform for the introduction of supply to demand, and it has been highly successful. Around 800 exhibitors are showcasing their products to over 17,000 trade visitors from all over Europe and the world. You meet with buyers from Switzerland, Sweden, Latvia, France, Kuweit, Germany, Pakistan, Korea, China, Iran, USA, Iceland, Japan, and Micronesia. Every edition brings in a crop of new buyers – usually over 20% of all visitors are first-timers. The great thing is that the audience, on average, consists of buyers and agents, wholesales and importers, designers and producers, and the media. Roughly 68% of all visitors happen to be either CEOs, owners, or buyers, so that is certainly a great outcome for your business.
