WORLDS CONNECTED IN THE HABITAT
The relationship between CODID-RM and the FMY is renowned and during the fair these two worlds are more connected than ever. For designers and interior designers, the Yecla exhibition centre becomes a fundamental space to find new ideas, materials and novelties, in the same way that for the event the view of these professionals embellishes and makes the spaces more attractive.
This symbiosis goes far beyond the exhibition centre and is linked to the FMY’s annual commitment to the habitat, a commitment also endorsed by CODID-RM. The importance of the approach to spaces, their work to make them more pleasant and the search for comfort and harmony are well known. This is also where the connection between the furniture cluster and the work of designers can be seen, because their vision and work is essential to create spaces with soul.
Finally, another of the points of union between these two worlds can be found in the Hospitality Contract, an area in which the FMY exhibitors once again stand out for their international prestige. It is in this desire to generate hospitality in the world of hosts that hoteliers, architects, interior designers, decorators and opinion leaders come into play, with the exhibiting firms promoting comfort worldwide with their contract installations.
