What's being dubbed as 'not your ordinary tradeshow,' Qubique will open in Berlin for the first time to furniture professionals and design enthusiasts this October 26-29.
"We went about creating this event basically in the way a designer creates a new piece of furniture," said Matthias Schmid, CEO of offshow AG, the company producing Qubique. "What came out here was not just another furniture fair—not a neutral trade show—but a platform that combines trade and marketing with communication, inspiration and entertainment."

In addition to furniture and design, art, music and fashion will be incorporated in order to reveal correlations, trends and new developments. The art of producing premium furniture and design objects will be shown and the quality, craftsmanship, and sustainability of the products will be demonstrated.
A supporting program featuring workshops, shows, music and a unique catering concept will allow the visitors and exhibitors to fee immersed in the world of Qubique.

"We do not aim to reflect the entire furniture market so we do not see ourselves as rivals to the major sales shows," said Ruben Hutschemaekers, Qubique’s Sales Director. "However, we are not a pure working fair on the obligatory circuit either — we combine business and entertainment. Qubique is aimed at trade visitors and the wider audience to an equal extent."
