IMM Cologne’s 2022 edition has been sadly cancelled due to the global coronavirus pandemic. Koelnmesse GmbH has opted for such a change after discussions with VDM. IMM Cologne is set for the new dates of January 16th to January 21st, 2023, and will take place at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany. Social distancing, sanitation and other health and safety precautions will be observed. This includes attendees needing to present vaccination/recovery certificates or negative test results before entering the fairgrounds. During their attendance, all participants must follow the social distance regulation as well as wear masks in the specified areas.  


The world trends that make impact on the furniture, kitchen and bath sectors are all shown at imm Cologne – the international furnishing trade fair that sees leading companies as well as emerging brands present their very best product lines.

First established in 1949, imm Cologne has grown to be a trend-setting event in the industry with an incredible impact that’s felt not only in Europe, but far beyond.

Its relevancy can be traced to the wealth of products included into its catalog. There’s home furniture, interior, mattresses, carpets, chairs, reproduction furniture, bedroom furniture, dining room, fabrics, self-assembly furniture, solid wood furniture and upholstered furniture just to tick off the main categories.


imm Cologne creates the trends and taste in furniture, which is why it runs like clockwork at the start of every year. Editions last a week in January and take place in Cologne, Germany.

The roles of official organiser and host are shared by Koelnmesse, which has turned imm Cologne into one of its most signature events. The first four days are reserved for professional visitors only and the last three days admit the general public.

The working hours are often from 09:00 am in the morning until 18:00 pm in the afternoon, though are subject to change. The last day wraps one hour earlier.

Koelnmesse is fully integrated into Cologne’s infrastructure and gives you plenty of opportunities to commute. Outside driving, you have the city rail, metro and tram lines to get you there.
