Over the course of the 32 years since its inception, the Internationale Kulturbörse Freiburg (IKF) has emerged as THE industry meeting place for the culture and events scene in the German-speaking world. The IKF takes place in January each year. Performing artists, musicians and street theatre performers present excerpts from their current productions over three days as part of almost 200 live performances. Some 400 exhibitors in two exhibition halls showcase the latest in the culture and event industry. 4,000 to 5,000 trade visitors each year take advantage of the numerous opportunities for information and communication that this international trade fair presents.
