Press Release 2018 Show

The eighth edition of DecoRus was the best to date. A good vibe of energy and goodwill reigned during this business-oriented event and this is how we want to keep it, as a "celebration of design", not only beautiful, but useful too!

For the eighth year running, the Hotel National were our gracious hosts and provided an excellent level of service and welcome throughout the event.

Seventy international brands took part, most being regular exhibitors, and a number of new companies, which added freshness and new trends to the show.

Two thousand professionals either pre-registered online or left their card on the door. The majority came from Moscow and the Moscow region, but many more than in previous years came from other regions of Russia, such as Cheboksary, Tyumen, Vladivistok, Ekaterinburg, Samara etc. A huge contingent came from St Petersburg, and there were many visitors from Belarus and several from Kazakstan.

These were mainly interior design studios and interior retail accounts, but an increasing percentage of architectural practices, and all the top Russian interior retail accounts. The majority of visitors came to see fabrics, shortly followed by wallcoverings and passementerie, while others were interested in "everything for the home".
DecoRus is always a good place to see old friends, but it was notable that the visitor profile has become younger, which indicates that a new generation of Russian designer is getting acquainted with western interior trends.

Everyone in our industry is welcome to DecoRus, so get ready for 2019! All being well, it will be the same place, same week in June, so let me know if you would like to exhibit next time:
