The New Format of Interior Exhibitions at Crocus Expo

BATIMAT RUSSIA & GLOBAL DESIGN change the form of presentation for manufacturing companies, as well as the way goods and services in the industry are marketed.

In early March, we witnessed the transformation of the famous BATIMAT RUSSIA interior exhibition into a new exhibition format entitled Global Design.

The organizers of Batimat Russia & Global Design reinterpreted the values that manufacturers, suppliers and consumers want to receive from participating in exhibitions. The classic B2B exhibitions did not pay attention to the end customers that in fact make up the key element in development of the modern market. The shift in focus to the needs of end consumers has led to a holistic understanding of the real challenges, which construction and interior exhibitions are facing.

The buyer does not just purchase a closet or parquet, but realizes his dream of an ideal home. This simple idea led to a collaboration of manufacturers and designers to recreate real residential and public interiors at exhibition stands.

Batimat Russia & Global Design presented 76 stands of real interiors, where 46 were given to living quarters (living rooms, entrance groups, bedrooms, bathrooms, children’s rooms and bathrooms) and 30 – to the interiors of public areas for various purposes: lounge areas, bars, a library, apartments, hotel rooms of various categories, a patio and a golf club.

Visitors who were interested in residential interiors had the opportunity to order their favorite products using QR codes and a special app, or go to the manufacturer’s conventional booth to get to know more about the interesting products. Manufacturers and designers received a real response to their services and new items in the form of orders or pent-up demand.

For 5 days, the event was attended by more than 25,000 unique visitors, over 800 brands of construction and finishing materials, sanitary ware, furniture, decor, electrical and lighting equipment were presented on an area of 16,700 sq. m. More than 120 events were held – lectures and master classes for designers, architects and private buyers at various stages of repair.

The combination of a traditional and new approach to the presentation of goods, brands and services of designers did not just intensify and complement each other. As all the participants noted, the new format aroused great interest from professional and private consumers and exceeded all expectations.

“Recently, participation in interior and construction exhibitions has shown that this is a recessive, fading trend, but today for the first time we saw a new format at Batimat – Global Design – and, frankly, we admired. Such a collaboration of manufacturers, designers, implemented in interiors, was exactly what the market needed. It’s easier to choose, it’s easier to buy: in fact, this leads to a new consumption model when a person buys a turnkey solution. This is the format of the future”

Olga Mikheeva

“I congratulate Batimat Russia & Global Design with the new concept, which, on the one hand, allows the designer to present himself and his projects, and to show himself to the suppliers in a new way. This concept has everything for the buyer – both the interior and the material. It's great!"

Design expositions in the format of showrooms of residential and public interiors at BATIMAT RUSSIA & GLOBAL DESIGN

BATIMAT RUSSIA & GLOBAL DESIGN featured 76 stands of real interiors.

Among them 46 were living quarters: entrance groups and living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms, children’s rooms and bathrooms. 1,083 products from 306 suppliers of finishing materials, furniture and decor were used for creating “living” and at the same time detailed interiors.

All visitors experienced incredible pleasure – they can’t often walk around such diverse fashionable and comfortable apartments: try on a stylistic solution, get to know designers, choose a complete fit-out and make an order. The organizers suggested using a unique digital assistant, which allows to instantly find out detailed information about all products used in projects with the help of QR codes, to buy or add the selected products to your favorites. No heap of catalogs, brochures and business cards!

Another interesting and large-scale section of the exhibition was the Hotel & Residence & Café Design Area – cool, creative, sensitive to current trends in the HoReCa segment. Visitors to the exhibition could not only see, but also check by themselves the unique design solutions created by famous and young architects and designers. Within the exhibition, a hotel complex was presented, attracting with color, forms and energy, with a separate entrance, lounge areas, a bar, a library, apartments, rooms of various categories, a patio and a golf club. The visual impressions of the conceptual spaces shown were reinforced by sound and light installations. Everything presented at the design booths was filled with deep meaning and thought out in detail.

30 concepts of public interiors were presented, featuring precise proportions, elegance, technology, tactile and visual sense of comfort. In addition to vivid emotional images, architects and designers presented premiere collections of furniture and decor items created in partnership with Russian and foreign manufacturers.

The exposition in the format of showrooms of residential spaces, the HoReCa Design Area, the stands of manufacturers and suppliers were attended by more than 25,000 unique guests during 5 days of the event, including leaders of the design community, top managers of manufacturing and supplying companies, representatives of construction companies and, of course, private customers.
