About Ambiente

Ambiente, the most important global consumer-goods fair, also offers a large number of industry events, programmes for up-and-coming professionals, trend presentations and award ceremonies and is part of Messe Frankfurt’s event portfolio.


Ambiente supports the German Design Graduates with a financial donation from the very beginning.

In addition, at least two participants in the German Design Graduates Show will be given the opportunity to take part in Ambiente’s Talents programme. This includes free exhibition space in one of the two Talents areas at the fair. These are located in the immediate vicinity of well-known exhibitors from the consumer goods sector.
