The countdown has now begun in earnest for the Maison&Objet Paris trade fair. So, what should you be getting up to in the run-up to the big day? Sitting back and twiddling your thumbs? Anything but! Head over to the MOM digital platform, designed by Maison&Objet, to get thoroughly prepared for your time at the fair by leveraging this interactive space that brings visitors and brands together.
It is set to host an unprecedented event across the month leading up to the fair: a pre-fair taster that will turn the spotlight on all the exciting new products you will later see gracing the stands. Optimising your sourcing and making a flurry of fab pre-fair connections doesn’t get any easier than this!
Do you need to see what a brand’s all about before even considering making a purchase? Of course you do, and we’re happy to say that you’ve come to the right place! Get ready to take a virtual stroll around each brand’s digital showroom, just like you would in real life. The second a brand grabs your attention, you can then dive deeper into its world. On MOM, each brand welcomes you on its own dedicated mini-site that shines a light on all it can offer by showcasing visuals of its stands and showrooms.
That gives you the opportunity to see products in-situ just like when you’re browsing for real. On top of all that, you will be able to actively get to grips with the brand’s values, story and commitments via a selection of vibrant videos. It’s the next best thing to having a real life one-on-one with the brand’s founder!
Are you a fan of building supplier relationships that stand the test of time? Then we’ve got some good news! The MOM digital platform is the perfect place to forge lasting relationships. So, how does it work? Suppliers are on hand to offer project advice and illuminating insights on your point of sale and your clients. In other words, you get to meet partners who meet your expectations. The cherry on the cake? Discussions flow smoothly right from the very start: with your MOM account, you’re just one click away from sending messages to suppliers and receiving their responses directly via email or telephone. What’s not to love?!
Over 5,000 brands that have signed up to exhibit at the Maison&Objet trade fair already await you online. Each day, you can cast your eyes over posts featuring exciting new items accompanied by detailed product information sheets. Suffice to say that the MOM digital platform harnesses the full power of Maison&Objet’s reach. Over the past twenty years, we have successfully forged trusting relationships with exhibitors and carved out a pivotal place in the decoration, design and lifestyle landscape, garnering support from industry professionals the world over. And that support extends far beyond our real-world event, rippling out to our online solutions, too.
Sifting your way through so many brands and products is certainly no mean feat. But there’s no need to panic! The MOM digital platform is quick and easy to use, not to mention costing you nothing, and we’re sure it will become your go-to sourcing assistant in no time at all! It offers filters, extreme close-up shots, features designed especially for industry professionals, and personalised product recommendations based specifically on your profile. And there’s certainly no skimping on details: dimensions, weights, materials - whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it! On top of all that, MOM serves up a weekly helping of fresh inspiration in the form of two on-trend product picks put together by our most in-demand influencers, including Sarah Lavoine, Jessica Barouch and Charles Zana to name but three. A pretty impressive line-up, we think you’ll agree!
As the decoration, design and lifestyle industry’s must-attend event draws ever-closer, spending time on MOM is a great trick to have up your sleeve. It offers an early bird look at our exhibitors’ newest pieces, the ability to print out your favourites, and the opportunity to line-up meetings with the designers you’re keen to catch up with at the fair. And if you secretly wish the Maison&Objet Paris trade fair could be part of your life all year long, the MOM digital platform is here to make that happen!
