The leading brands and specialists in interior decorating and furniture will convert Exponor into a showcase of news and trends for the home space. From 13 to 17 February, more than 180 exhibitors will share their inspirations for the new year.
Export Home, which celebrates its 28th event over a span of 30 years, is a showcase of the main Portuguese furniture and lighting brands, recognised worldwide for the perfect symbiosis between quality, design and function. In 23rd place in the international ranking, the Portuguese industry currently exports to more than 146 countries, in particular France (35%), Spain (24%) and the United States (7%).
The event aims to attract more than 10,000 professional visitors to the city of Porto, currently one of the most sought-after tourist destinations, among them a growing percentage of international buyers from more than 30 countries of four continents.
One of the great novelties this year is the Export Home Sustainability and Innovation Award, created in partnership with the University of Aveiro, which will distinguish the most outstanding projects and practices of the exhibiting companies in this area.
At the same time, Interdecoração – Home & Gift Showcase – the barometer of trends in the decoration sector – will be held. Being one of the first events of the year, it identifies the themes, styles, colours, textures and finishes that will mark the decoration universe throughout the year. It is divided into four main areas: Living, dedicated to interior decorating, lighting and home textiles; Giving, with items for parties, gifts, jewellery and accessories; Feeling, with suggestions of fragrances, decoration accessories, Christmas decorations and flowers; and Table & Kitchen, which includes kitchen utilities.
Exclusive to professionals, this double fair is a meeting point for architects, interior designers, decorators, agents and furniture and decoration stores. The hotel industry will also be present, showcasing home space solutions. As a platform of inspiration and contact between professionals, the event will also host workshops and provide moments for networking.
