A German premiere – the first big sustainable consumer goods show, to be held in Hamburg in 2011
Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH is launching a new consumer show, “goodgoods”
The premiere of this event will be in Hamburg, from 27 to 29 May 2011. It will be the first major show for sustainable consumer goods in Germany, held at the Hamburg Fair site. The companies at goodgoods will have 8,000 square metres of exhibition space to present their most innovative and attractive products, services and projects, available today or in the immediate future. The visitors will find products from all areas of daily life, including home, fashion, technology, mobility, business, food, health and wellness.
The aim of goodgoods is to combine green products and responsibility with quality, functionality and design. There will not only be a wide range of products, but also a strong supporting programme with lively presentations and discussion forums. The exhibitors include large corporations and small niche suppliers and NGOs. An Expert Committee of independent specialists has been appointed to ensure that products and experts live up to the high environmental and social responsibility standards expected at goodgoods.
Bernd Aufderheide, President and CEO Hamburg Messe und Congress:
“Sustainability has become a key issue in society, changing all industries and consumer areas. The time is ripe for an exhibition that gives consumers extensive information and guidance. Our aim at goodgoods is to get even more people enthusiastic about sustainable products and services.”
Peter Kowalsky, CEO Bionade:
“Where else, if not in Germany? We have the right market and the right companies for a sustainability show.”
Ulrich Sieg, Deputy Chairman Hamburger Hochbahn:
“A dedicated event on sustainable consumer goods is just what we need in Hamburg – it fits in extremely well with our city, as the European Green Capital 2011. Sustainability is vital in all areas of society today – above all in mobility. That is why Hochbahn (the Hamburg public transport company) is committed to testing and using the latest techniques for protection of the environment and conservation of resources in its buses and trains.”
Andreas Streubig, Corporate Responsibility Manager Otto Group:
“goodgoods can help to launch green products and services in the mass market, and to get sustainability firmly established in mainstream society.”
Craig Davis, Marketing Director Tesla Motors:
“The most innovative green brands under one roof. A really good idea. We’ll be there”
Sustainability is also the key factor in the creative design concept for the exhibition halls and the exhibitors’ stands. goodgoods will be a climate-neutral event.
Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH is organising goodgoods in cooperation with Daniel Dahm Consult and KleeneWöltje. Both these consultancies are specialists in sustainability, and are partnering Hamburg Messe in concept design and execution of goodgoods.
