Ambiente 2023: the massive Messe Frankfurt trade fair is back

After two years of forced closure, one of the most important trade fairs in the world in the immense consumer-goods sector is back live and in person: Ambiente 2023, taking place from February 3rd to 7th at Messe Frankfurt.

A can’t-miss event for experts and enthusiasts, it is the event where companies and designers introduce the latest trends and new releases from the worlds of design, fashion, and food. Obviously, we can’t wait to find out more…

Ambiente 2023: Moving the future

New perspectives always create new opportunities. Ambiente provides a window onto the changes taking place in the market and also offers a sneak peek at the future. The ideas and innovations on display in Frankfurt are truly able to “move the future”, as the 2023 edition’s tagline explains.

What to expect at Ambiente 2023?

What should you expect at Ambiente 2023? Absolutely everything! It is generally said that it concerns consumer goods because there are an incredible number of products on display which are split into four big areas: Dining, Living, Giving, and the new Working section. Each area has many exhibitor stands and you can follow exclusive events and talks which cover the trendiest themes.


The Dining area is immense and extensive in its offering. As its name indicates, products for the table and kitchen (and appliances) can be found here. It is the place to be for cooks, fans of table decoration, and design lovers in general.


The Living area includes a vast array of furniture and decorations dedicated to pure interior design. Obviously, being huge design fans, we can’t wait to check out the most interesting new releases in this sector.


The third section of the fair is called Giving and it is dedicated to the vast world of gift ideas, personal accessories, and starting this year, even the best stationary supplies. It’s a gift-giving paradise!


The new Work area is once again proof of how the world of work is undergoing constant changes. And we know that Ambiente 2023 will provide a sneak peek at how people will work in the future. The section will include the Contract Business and office sectors, as well as HoReCa—the hotel and restaurant sector—with opportunities for intersection and potential for expansion.

In addition to hosting the presentation of trend-setting products, the Working area will host discussions about sustainability, new jobs, lifestyle, design (in a larger sense), and the expansion of the digital market. As you can see, there will be lots to discover and get inspired by at its expositions, presentations, and talks.

Ambiente 2023 and its side fairs

There’s another reason to participate in Ambiente 2023. At the same time as the main event, Messe Frankfurt will also host the  Christmasworld and Creativeworld fairs to create an all-purpose hub and general sense of common synergy.
