Interior Lifestyle Tokyo is preparing for its 24th edition, scheduled to be held from 4 – 6 (Wed – Fri) June 2014 at Tokyo Big Sight West Halls 1,2,3,4 and the Atrium. Interior Lifestyle Tokyo is Asia’s number one consumer goods fair, based on two of Messe Frankfurt’s largest annual fairs in Frankfurt, Germany; Ambiente, the world’s largest consumer goods fair, held annually in February, and Heimtextil, the biggest international trade fair for home and contract textiles, held every January. Through Messe Frankfurt Group’s global network, Interior Lifestyle Tokyo has established itself as an invaluable platform and destination for buyers and sellers involved in the worldwide consumer goods industry.

In 2013, the fair welcomed a record-breaking 705 exhibitors; 473 domestic and 232 overseas from 32 countries and regions, reflecting the show’s international popularity. There were 25,456 visitors (domestic: 24,728 overseas: 728) from 35 countries and regions in total, searching for the latest high-end design products, trends and new lifestyle ideas. Many exhibitors expressed their satisfaction by commenting that they met many visitors with strong interest in their premium quality items.

The 2014 edition of Interior Lifestyle Tokyo is planning further highlights and events. The Atrium Highlight has been one of the most popular showcases at this fair, presenting themed exhibits. The theme for 2014 is “Welcome to my home!”, aiming to suggest ideas and styles for various gatherings and other social occasions through exhibited items such as kitchenware, food and beverage, design furniture, electronics, textiles and other decorating items. This area will introduce visual store displays, which will truly become an inspiration for creating attractive retail interiors.

Another highlight will be “JAPAN STYLE”, a zone that introduces designer products reflecting ‘real’ Japanese culture.The exhibited products here not only highlight traditional Japanese beauty, but also reflect authentic and modern Japanese culture.“NEXT” and “TALENTS” are also must-see showcases that offer business opportunities to young talented designers and entrepreneurs.

IFFT/Interior Lifestyle Living, a second successful international event that follows Interior Lifestyle Tokyo, will take place from 6 – 8 November 2013 at Tokyo Big Sight, East Hall. Showcasing high-end interior design products, it is held each year during the autumn season.
