Director Kirstin Deutelmoser commented: “We were delighted with the positive response and praise for our kick-off event but also saw this as our motivation to once again surprise our visitors at the forthcoming GDS. For this reason we are offering the trade audience the Design Trendsetters project with extra added value making it possible to see international trends and themes right at the start of the season.
