International Trade Shows
Messe Frankfurt – Tendence

Logically arranged by retail channel, lifestyle and target group, Tendence (June 27 – 30, 2020) takes its cue from the needs of consumers. It therefore enables retailers to compile their product ranges in a highly focused manner and to implement them in their own stores, ensuring the success of their business. As a consumer goods trade fair, Tendence demonstrates the latest trends and products in interior design, home accessories, gifts, jewellery, fashion and lifestyle. Retailers benefit from a wide range of inspirations to support their sales as well as a powerful complementary programme.

At the same time, it is a good opportunity for anyone wanting to place orders in good time for their spring and summer collections.

Our Sponsors from other Market Segments
The following sponsors are listed in an alphabetical order.
FRANK®-THE TROPHY comes from Wächtersbach, a traditional company that today belongs to Brachtwerk, and has an extraordinary history.
FRANK®-THE TROPHY is based on a historical sculpture from the 1920s, drawn by an artist we do not know by name, who is said to have worked in the Wächtersbach manufactory at a similar time to the most famous fashion draughtswoman in the world, Annie Ofterdinger. The sculpture has been re-edited, combines two years of tradition, art and fashion and is intended to honour young designers in the future. It is a fashion figure of extraordinary, creative quality, which was made in the original only once.
