Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair welcomes increase of overseas visitors

(Sweden) – Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair sees overseas visitors representing a record number of 100 countries.

Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair is shaping up to be a major player on the international design scene. An impressive 31 percent of visitors were from abroad, an increase of more than 4 percent over last year. Visitors came from 100 countries, compared with 80 countries last year and 60 countries the year before. Most visitors hailed from Norway, Finland, Denmark and the UK.

“It’s fantastic that we’re growing steadily on the international design scene,” says Cecilia Nyberg, Event Manager for Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and Stockholm Design Week. “We are seeing more and more interest in the fair and in Scandinavian design reaching beyond Europe’s borders, in particular from the United States, China and Japan. This year, we have put extra effort into Stockholm Design Week by adding content to the fair visits and promoting Stockholm as a design destination. More than 200 events took place during the week, and we had our own installation – The Light House – in Kungsträdgården. We are also thrilled about all the positive responses we have received from national and international visitors alike. Many people have commented on the high quality of our fair and the open atmosphere and accessibility,” says Cecilia Nyberg, Event Manager for Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and Stockholm Design Week.
