I’m Frankfurt, Germany bound with #BlogTourAmbiente and this trip will be one for the memory book! If you remember back in 2013 I joined Modenus’ #BlogTourLA where you traveled with me to Los Angeles, California. This week from Feb 11-17th I will bring you along with me to the Ambiente Consumer Goods Trade Fair.
#BlogTourAmbiente – Ambiente Show – Frankfurt, Germany
….the world’s most important consumer goods trade fair, which boasts a globally unrivaled range of products in the Dining, Giving and Living areas. This is where over 4,700 exhibitors from 89 countries showcase an international range of consumer goods. Only here will you find from 13 to 17 February all the market’s new products, inspiring ideas and the latest trends.
In 2015, the stage has been set for a wealth of ideas and suppliers from this year’s Ambiente partner country, which is also one of the fair’s top 15 exhibitor nations – The United States of America.
It’s exciting to represent the U.S. for the first time at Ambiente. What an honor! Take a look at the other Modenus #BlogTourAmbiente Design Bloggers who will join me on this exciting trip.
So many ways to “Join Me” in Frankfurt for #BlogTourAmbiente
The reason I love to travel the most is bringing you the highlights as I take on new adventures, bring you international design trends, meet new people and of course “Instagram” it every step of the way. 🙂
Follow me on Instagram as RoniqueGibson.
The BEST way to follow me is on Instagram and Facebook. Images from who I meet, where I travel and my travel ramblings can be found there! Here’s my warm welcome greeting I got this weekend from Elisabeth Herckes – who is an artist for Rikki Tikki who will be showing at Ambinete. Don’t you love social media?
This morning I got a pre @ambientefair welcome! Elisabeth Herckes @elisabeth_paint – an Artist for Rikki Tikki Company. She will be presenting her beautifully hand-painted elephants at Ambiente! She says “Painting is my passion… And colors are my language …My business is everything around painting… I have organized Workshops with the Artbox from Elephant Parade” Such a pleasure to meet artisans before I even arrive in Frankfurt, Germany! 🙂 Look for her and her team at the show – http://www.rikkitikki.dk/@modenus #BlogTourAmbiente #housewares #gifts#sculptor #painter #artisan
Ambiente will be the site for the German Design Award
“During @ambientefair , Frankfurt once more becomes the meeting place for a “who’s who” of the design and creative sectors. And a particular highlight at the fair is the presentation of the German Design Award.”.. Ambiente Blog #designers #design#German Who doesn’t love great German design?
