Formex - Update

The January physical edition of Formex 2023 will be held from 22.08.2023 to 25.08.2023. Organisers are adamant that only live trade shows and exhibitions are able to generate business at impressive rates. Trade visitors will not be required to follow strict Covid-19 protective measures at Stockholmsmässan in Stockholm, Sweden. This is due to the removal of the related domestic restrictions. Currently, Sweden has temporary travel limitations regarding arrivals from China in place. According to these restrictions, which will be valid until 18.20.2023, attendees arrving from the People's Republic will have to present a negative test result. 


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 and functions as a tastemaker, where the newest Nordic design trends are first announced and then are ready to take on the rest of the world. As popular and desired as 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, organic and fair trade products to clothing, jewelry, lamps, decorative items, children's clothing, stuffed animals and toys.


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.

Audience & Statistics

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.
