The international creative trend bureau Carlin creates unique exhibition for Formex

At Formex on January 14–17, 2020 the focus will be on the challenges faced by retailers when the international trend and content agency Carlin takes over Stockholmsmässan’s Entrance Hall with their Retail Hub exhibition. The aim is to both inspire and offer new insights to exhibitors and visitors by highlighting the latest themes in retail, such as sustainability, the growth of e-commerce and the interior design industry’s need to restructure in response.

Carlin was the world’s first trend agency that was founded to provide the fashion and textile industry with trend intelligence, and it currently has a presence in 25 countries. The Retail Hub exhibition, which they have created for Formex, considers subjects such as the relationship between physical and digital retail, a hot topic for the event’s visitors and exhibitors. The exhibition will be set up in Stockholmsmässan’s Entrance Hall as a place where people, objects and ideas can come together. For the first time in Formex’s history, there will also be a store in the Entrance Hall – POPIN@RETAILHUB.

“We are proud to have been invited by Formex to participate at this significant platform for Nordic interior design. Sweden is one of the world’s leading countries when it comes to early adoption of new consumer behaviors, sustainability and craftsmanship and we hope we can contribute an international perspective and learn more together,” says trend analyst Ambre Venissac.
