The idyllically located Hotel Gut Altona in Wildeshausen offered us the perfect setting for this ambitious undertaking.

Workshop New Work: How we want to work
Work-life balance or pure efficiency, home office or presence work, flexibility or structure? The world of work has been changing for years. Corona and labour shortages have driven these discussions further - and we are also continuously dealing with the topic. Because: In every company, different interests come together that should be brought to a common denominator. In December, we had a workshop in our conference room with one goal in mind: to create a working environment in which we all enjoy working.

What is performance marketing and what are the first steps for companies? Part II
For companies, performance marketing is an important tool for achieving marketing goals and it is impossible to imagine today's advertising landscape without it. In part two of our last practical tip, we reveal how performance marketing can support your market entry strategy.
A look into German households: How much money does Germany invest in furniture?
COVID-19 has been part of our everyday lives for two years now, and we have spent much more time at home than before. So it's no surprise that tidying up à la Marie Kondo is booming, Netflix series like Dreamhome-Makeover are getting huge viewer numbers, and the reach of interior channels on Instagram is growing fast. To use the time set free reasonably, Germany devoted itself to redesigning the old kitchen or the child's room, which needed an age-appropriate update. But how much do Germans actually spend on their furniture? And did their buying behavior change significantly over the past two years? There was a lot of news coverage on this topic at the beginning of the year, and we summarize the most important results and statements in our February review.
What is performance marketing and what are the first steps for companies?
SEO, SEA, e-mail marketing, marketplaces: these are just a few areas of performance marketing, a marketing strategy that deals with the implementation, evaluation and optimization of advertising measures with clearly measurable performance. More website views, registration for a newsletter, the targeted promotion of a suitable product for the respective customer need and thus, in the end, an increase in sales figures- for companies, performance marketing is an important tool for achieving marketing goals and it is impossible to imagine today's advertising landscape without it. We asked our SEA team to answer the most important questions about performance marketing.
Metaverse: Fairs soon on a new dimension?
The digitization of our reality continues to advance, and since Facebook was renamed "Meta", the expanded universe has been on everyone's lips. But the German market is also following suit: with MILC, the TV station Welt der Wunder under Hendrik Hey launched a digital marketplace for license trading of any creative services. Especially in the ongoing pandemic times, metaverses offer platforms with almost infinite possibilities - also for the furnishing industry. Fairs, festivals, concerts: events that have long been taken for granted are once again coming to a standstill. But there is a way to make events happen either way: Digital. Hybrid events are no longer entirely new, not least due to the pandemic, but the metaverse still offers the opportunity to lift spectacular performances into a - literally - new dimension.
German Interior Trends 2022: The end of fast furniture

We are talking about sustainability. It’s one of the main topics from the Trend Report 2022 of the German Furniture Industry Association, the Verband der Deutschen Möbelindustrie E.V., in cooperation with trend expert Katrin de Louw. In the following, we summarize the most important findings for you.
