Visitors can expect not only new product ideas from the renowned network partners in the exhibition of the Furniture Future Forum, but also a significant program with many highlights. The topic “Times of change” and thus also the furniture industry, will be addressed by a whole series of renowned speakers on Thursday, 15.06.23 in Bünde.
“Supply chain management: new software for robust and sustainable transformation” will be the first topic of the day, by Louis Schulze, Co-Founder of the start-up Zeropath from Bad Oeynhausen. This will be followed by a contribution from the renowned designer Irmy Wilms-Haverkamp, Managing Director of Köhler & Wilms from Herford. She dedicates her know-how to the exciting topic “The Silver Upgrade: Living Culture and Demographic Change” and lets us participate in this morning.
After a break to discover the exhibition, it continues with a specialist from Hamburg. “Future Office – an ecosystem in constant change” is the title of the presentation by Inken Johanne Gierow, Managing Partner Design & Innovation at Joppich & Rieckhoff Handelsgesellschaft für Büroeinrichtungen mbH.
The TRENDREPORT by Katrin de Louw, owner of TRENDFILTER and initiator of the COLORNETWORK is already obligatory at this spring event in the Furniture Future Forum and has been a crowd puller for decision makers in the furniture industry for many years. For a long time, talking about short-lived interior trends has been “too short-sighted” for her. On this day, too, she will give the larger overview for designers and developers in this year’s lecture: “Furniture design at the turn of the times – which design strategies are gaining in importance”.
During the second break, visitors and network partners will also be happy to exchange ideas with each other. For this purpose, the hosts are also personally on site in Bünde: Christian Kröger, Conal, Continental, Europlac, Furnipart, Hera, Lehmann, Linak, Neelsen, Röhm, Schattdecor, Sonae Arauco, Strate Druck, SWL and Van Hoecke.
As the day’s finale, we were able to win over management thought leader Dr. Jens-Uwe Meyer. He is CEO of Innolytics AG, author and expert for digitalization and future strategies. His eagerly awaited look beyond the industry plate is entitled: “Reset! How the Interior & Furniture Industry Can Reinvent Itself”.
Participation in the high-profile event is free of charge for all furniture manufacturers, designers and interior architects.
