News from Tinby

Meet us at this year's trade fairs (incl. a brief guide to the trade fairs)

06. March 2019

2019 is going to be an exciting year for trade fairs as far as Tinby is concerned - one in which we hope to meet not only many of our current clients, but also a lot of potential new customers from around the world. Perhaps that includes you? We are only exhibiting at one trade fair this year, but in addition to that, our sales team will be visiting a number of other trade fairs to keep up-to-date on new trends, make new contacts, and follow up on interesting leads. These will mainly be the key trade shows in the fields of furniture design, composite and insulation,and the wind turbine industry. Our Sales Engineer, Michael Lind, has already been to Sweden where he visited the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair in early February - and our sales team are heading to Paris from 12-14 March to participate in the JEC World Composite Show 2019.

In 2019, Tinby will attend the following trade shows - we hope to see you there!


Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair, 5-9 February 2019 (attendees) | Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair kicked off at the beginning of February this year and was attended by more than 40,000 visitors. With approximately 700 exhibitors spread over 40,000 sq. m., it is clear that interest in Scandinavian design is growing and, above all, is spreading out beyond Europe's borders to countries such as the USA, China and Japan. There is no doubt that Danish design has an important role to play on the Scandinavian design scene, where Tinby, as a major player, is committed to making a significant contribution to the design and manufacture of our clients' many exciting ranges of furniture. 

ISH Insulation, Frankfurt, 11–15 March 2019 (attendees) | The ISH insulation trade fair in Frankfurt is the world's leading trade fair for building installations, energy, air-conditioning technology and renewable energy, among other things – and the organisers expect to host around 2,500 exhibitors and approximately 200,000 visitors. This trade fair is also the world's largest exhibition for solutions that combine water and energy. This fair is particularly interesting for Tinby as we produce a number of products using future-oriented insulation solutions for the construction industry. 

JEC World Composite Show, Paris 12–14 March 2019 (attendees) | JEC World in Paris is the world's largest composite trade show. With over 1,300 exhibitors from 150 different countries and more than 43,000 visitors, this trade show is particularly relevant for Tinby, as the trade show focusses on composite solutions within the wind turbine sector among others, which is one of Tinby's main areas of expertise.

Transport Herning, Denmark, 21-23 March 2019 (attendees and exhibitors) | Trucks and transportation feature on the programme from 21-23 March 2019, when the Transport Trade Fair kicks off at the Messecenter Herning for the 31st consecutive year. Our subsidiary, Tinby Skumplast A/S, will be exhibiting at the show, the place where the entire transportation sector gets together once a year. Tinby Skumplast manufacture and sell PUR and PIR foam which can be used to insulate, among other things, refrigerated trucks, and which are used in the construction of delivery vans/trucks. Meet us at stand number J7356. 

Interzum Cologne, 21– 24 May 2019 (attendees) | Interzum Cologne is the world's leading trade fair for furniture production and interior design and is held in late May every second year - on odd years. This trade fair is where the most important business is conducted and where momentum for the global furniture supply industry really takes off. More than 17,000 exhibitors and 69,000 visitors attend the fair.  

Husum Wind Energy, 10–13 September 2019 (attendees) | In September, Tinby will be attending the Husum Wind Energy trade fair in Husum - an international trade fair for companies who work in the German wind energy sector and related industries. Major players, such as Vestas, Siemens and Ørsted (formerly Dong Energy), will all be attending. With more than 650 exhibitors and around 18,000 visitors, this is one of the world's leading trade fairs within the wind energy sector, which is why it is also of interest to Tinby, who produce articles and related products for the wind turbine industry. 

Kind + Jugend Cologne, 18–21 September 2019 (attendees) | Kind + Jugend is the leading international trade fair for products aimed at the “next generation”, and is held annually in Cologne. At Tinby, we produce a number of products for babies and children such as the Matty changing pad in flexible PUR which we made for Leander who have just won the German Design Award for this product. More than 1,200 companies from 49 countries exhibit at the Kind + Jugend trade show – and everyone is interested in making the most of this opportunity to showcase their products and services and demonstrate their expertise to the approximately 24,000 visitors who attend from all over the world. 

K Düsseldorf, 19-26 October 2019 (attendees) | Naturally, Tinby will also be at the world's largest plastics show –- K Düsseldorf – that runs 19-26 October in Düsseldorf. K Düsseldorf is one of the most important events in the calendar for the Danish plastics industry, as it had almost a quarter of a million visitors and more than 3,000 exhibitors in 2016. This trade show, which is only held every third year, is the largest trade show in the world in the plastics and rubber industries.
