Woonbeurs Amsterdam 2013, my quick fix for home and living trends!
The Woonbeurs Amsterdam 2013 will be my first Woonbeurs where I can walk around as any other visitor. Last few years I worked at the home deco magazines as a marketing manager and one of my responsibilities was our presence at the fair. Since I now I have an other job and I’m not visiting the international home and living fair in Paris anymore, I look forward to going to the Woonbeurs Amsterdam 2013 as a visitor! Walking around, soaking up the new trends for your home and discovering new designers. I also look forward to the presentation of vtwonen! The Woonbeurs Amsterdam 2013 is held in the RAI between October 1 and 6.
Woonbeurs Amsterdam 2013 and Meet The Blogger
For all fellow bloggers that read this… you probably already know that Meet The Blogger is teaming up with the Woonbeurs Amsterdam 2013. On Monday you can go to the blog event and on Tuesday you’re the first to make pictures for your blogs at the Woonbeurs. I’m not sure if I can make it to Meet The Blogger yet… I have to work because on Wednesday evening I leave for a Travel Blog Event in Dublin. Life is full of exciting events!
Home and living shopping :-)
October seems far away…. but before you know you want a new blanket to snuggle up on the couch drinking tea and eating cookies. Fall is coming. And in the fall I always want to make changing to my interior. A new vase, a new photo frame or pillow. What’s on my wishlist for this Woonbeurs? I always love to shop at the vtwonen shop (and hopefully the vtwonen outlet again!). Every year I leave the vtwonen shop with huge bags full of new home and living accessories! PS: you can now order tickets with discount in the presale!
