Habitare’s professional event is Habitare Pro

Habitare’s offering for professionals will, in the future, be incorporated under the umbrella title of Habitare Pro. Habitare Pro, a high-quality event for design and spatial design professionals, will be held at Messukeskus in Helsinki, from 12 to 14 September in 2018.

Habitare Pro will include a premium exhibition, a world-class programme, and a B2B event at which sellers can, at pre-arranged appointments, easily and effectively present their product portfolios to a targeted group of buyers.

The Habitare Pro exhibition design will be conceived by the award-winning JKMM Architects, in collaboration with the innovative lighting solutions specialist Lighting Design Collective LDC. The exhibition design, on theme of “Sense”, will bring products and businesses into the foreground, as it provides an inspiring stage for encounters between businesses and customers. Large surfaces of translucent fabric, moving images, and areas clearly marked off by light help visitors navigate the exhibition space. Other partners contributing to the exhibition space are Arktis and Kvadrat, known for their high-quality furniture and fabrics; Novo Wood, specialising in wood-based board products; and PixMill, known for large-format prints.

Habitare Pro’s targeted content and programme for professionals is curated by the creative director of Habitare and Habitare Pro, Laura Sarvilinna.
