Location: Interzum, KölnMesse, hall 4.2
Organizer: KölnMesse
Program Development: Haute Innovation – Agentur für Material und Technologie
Presentation: Dr. Sascha Peters

By topic “Disruptive Materials – Changing the Future” some of the latest material innovations and disruptive technologies will be presented at Interzum 2019. New materials are the main drivers of product innovation. This applies to product developers as well as to designers and architects. With more than 100 exhibits on around 400 square meters in Hall 4.2, the special area will focus on the main fields of innovation.

In addition to the exhibition, Haute Innovation will be staging a conference event with 18 lectures on the main topics of the exhibition on three days of the fair.
