Testimonials LivingKitchen 2013
Elmar Duffner, former COO Alno AG+
"As far as Alno is concerned, LivingKitchen 2013 was a very successful trade fair. Both the volume and quality of the visitors far exceeded our expectations. We're delighted that our new products met with such a positive response from our trading partners and consumers alike."
Frank Hüther, former managing director of AMK+
"LivingKitchen 2013 has been the highly deserved joint success that the kitchen industry and Koelnmesse were hoping for: an international kitchen event in a class of its own – thanks to magnificent booths and products, thanks to intense visitor marketing on the part of both the exhibitors and the trade fair corporation, and thanks to sound PR as well. The strong presence of the trade sector and the substantial number of international trade visitors – especially from Russia, China and Asia in general – were definitely grounds for enthusiasm. International exhibitors were also able to convince themselves of the professionalism, visitor volumes and quality that LivingKitchen can offer them. Just like the international media, they will be spreading the word as to where modern kitchens are at home and where the world's leading kitchen fair belongs: in Cologne!"
Stefan Kohl, Head of Corporate Communications at Blanco+
"We and our subsidiaries were able to make excellent use of the LivingKitchen stage to communicate our brand values, hold valuable talks and make new contacts. Accordingly, we're really thrilled with LivingKitchen 2013."
Dr. Oliver Streit, executive director nobilia+
"The way the kitchen furniture industry and electrical appliance manufacturers have been portrayed here in the LivingKitchen halls is a huge and very impressive success. We at nobilia are very pleased with our location and – as always – feel very much at home at LivingKitchen .
