Calling craftspeople and designers!

The deadline for the Talents promotional programme is March 20, 2017

Creativity wanted – Talents found! Tendence, the first international order and new-products platform in the second half of the year once again invites jewellery designers, fashion designers and craftspeople to apply for a place at the Talents area of the fair.

With the promotional programme, Tendence supports particularly creative, highly skilled and innovative young designers and craftspeople with a free exhibition stand, which gives participants the chance to present their work and to make important contacts to trade and industry throughout the four-day trade fair. 

For many of these Talents, this is the opportunity to gain a foothold in the international design and consumer-goods scene, to make decisive contacts and attract attention in the sector.

The Talents area for jewellery and fashion design is embedded in the heart of the Jewellery and Accessories Hall (11.1). Also in the best company are the Modern Crafts Talents in Hall 9.0 who will make their presentations in the immediate vicinity of the FORM 2017 exhibition of award-winning modern products between the opposing poles of arts & crafts and design. 

Craftspeople and designers interested in a Talents place are invited to apply with their projects, unique products and prototypes by 20 March 2017. Applications should be sent to:
Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH
Emine Disli
Ludwig-Erhard-Anlage 1
60327 Frankfurt am Main
Telephone: +49 69 7575-6915

The application form can also be found online at
