The dates for ZOW, the international fair for suppliers to the furniture and interior design industries, is being changed for 2016. The sector event of the furniture supply industry held in Bad Salzuflen will now start on Tuesday 16th February, and end on Friday 19th February 2016.

"This step is being taken in response to the requests made by the exhibitors and trade visitors. The rescheduling of the event will prevent the show from coinciding with both the public holidays in the Rhineland for Carnival celebrations and skiing holidays in South Germany and in some neighbouring states," explains the show management.

The opening times of the fair are also set to be adjusted in addition to the new dates. From Tuesday to Thursday, visitors will have the opportunity to find out about the latest trends of the furniture industry from 9.30am to 5.30pm, while the show will be open on Friday from 9.30am to 2.30pm. The show management is convinced that these measures will allow exhibitors and visitors to optimise their planning for the coming year.

Preparations for the forthcoming ZOW 2016 are already underway. Besides the development of further groups of products and exhibitors, the focus of the next show will be on ground-breaking trends and the advancing individualisation of serially produced furniture, in continuation of the central themes of this year's event. As a result, suppliers, manufacturers and designers will be offered a wide range of possibilities for engaging in discussions and establishing contacts.
