Better living in the open air - the Outdoor Living area at Tendence

Mar 14, 2018

Why can we only relax in the living room? Every terrace and even the smallest balcony can be transformed into a cosy sitting area without much effort. The Outdoor Living area at Tendence, which is enjoying growth in visitor numbers in line with the trend, will showcase clever ideas and beautiful products, and demonstrate how to furnish outdoor spaces comfortably as well.

Living is increasingly relocating outside into the fresh air. Balconies and terraces have been an extension of the living room for a long time. And they are also the places where people increasingly surround themselves with fresh greenery and beautiful accessories. The Outdoor Living area will put garden plants on display with outdoor lifestyle products - in an exhibition space between the Galleria and Hall 10, and in the F11 area outdoors. "The special exhibition concept makes a visit to the area a genuine experience. A feeling of well-being on our balcony is not just demonstrated in a theoretical way: it can be experienced in practice - and there are more exhibitors and products this time than previously. The area has developed into a unique selling point for Tendence. It is an ordering platform and, first and foremost, an impulse generator for the point of sale", says Bettina Bär, Director of Tendence.

In Frankfurt am Main, from 30 June to 3 July 2018, Tendence will be showcasing how every open space – whether it be a micro-balcony, a roof terrace, or a park-like garden, can be filled with life. For the second time, Tendence has commissioned 2Dezign from the Netherlands to stage an exclusive exhibition concept. Visitors will be given inspirational ideas and acquire impressions of best practice for customised product presentation of plants, outdoor furniture and outdoor accessories, etc. The area is nearly fully booked by, among others, Blooming Walls, Goedegebuure Natural Decorations and Pad home design concept, as well as new exhibitors DECO Gasgeräte, outTrade and Simply Best.
