Every year there are numerous Design and Decoration events all over the world. The brands of furniture, decoration and contracting are disposed to participate in the largest number of events possible. In this way makes their products and services known to professionals and individuals. These fairs are an excellent showcase for a brand to make known the news they prepared for the year/season in which the event is inserted. The frequency of these events may be annual (annual trends, for example, textile trends for 2019) or semi-annual (Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter trends).
The fairs are an excellent marketing tool used to increase customer portfolio and show the existing product news. Companies expose themselves directly to buyers and suppliers by increasing their network and boosting their internationalization process by increasing business opportunities.
