This week we took our first trip to Cologne in Germany to attend Orgatec, the global office furniture trade fair held in the Koelnmesse exhibition centre :)
I was sent by my office to scout out new and upcoming trends, and to gather information and contacts from the companies exhibiting there….Y’ was able to come with me as my lovely assistant ;P
The place is absolutely huge, filling several big halls within the complex, and some even on multiple levels ;>.>
There was soooo much to see and take in, but it was all really interesting and I was able to get loads of ideas and information and names of suppliers which I can hopefully put to good use in my job ^^
We stayed overnight in the city close to the waterfront. The building was an interesting old place but the rooms had been done really nice inside, and it was nice and comfortable :)
The next day we headed back into the exhibition centre and continued from where we left off.
We managed to cover all of the stands in every hall by the end of our time there, and we definitely needed both days to be able to get round and see everything at a pace where you can really appreciate it.
It was a really interesting couple of days, and I’m now looking forward to putting some things to good use ;)
