Every now and then, we round up recent events and activities from some of the JYSK countries. Check out the latest here.

B2B participated in Xenia 2022 exhibition, Greece

In November 2022, JYSK B2B in Greece participated at one of the leading hospitality meetings in Greece. The Xenia exhibition attracted 26,500 professionals from the hospitality industry, which made it a perfect place to show JYSK’s products and furniture.

The team created a walkthrough exhibition of JYSK furniture, which provided the visitors with a hotel feeling.

The goal was to present an attractive Scandinavian space for living and sleeping.

Colleagues participate in Balaton Marathon, Hungary

JYSK was the main sponsor of the JYSK Balaton Marathon, which was held in November 2022.

There were JYSK employees represented on all distances and many more joined as fans. The JYSK Country Director, Sándor Szimeister, and HR Manager, Dóra Dvorácskó, started all distances for nearly 3,500 runners with the sound of bagpipes.

Half Trabant, Head Office Brabrand, Denmark

On 6 December, half a Trabant drove through JYSK Head Office before reaching its final resting place in the new JYSK Museum.

The story behind the split-in-two Trabant goes back to the opening of DÄNISCHES BETTENLAGER in Eastern Germany. JYSK founder Lars Larsen was gifted a whole Trabant, which has now been cut in half to fit in the new JYSK Museum.

Actually, the Trabant is not the original, as it would have been a shame to divide that in halves. Instead, Lars Larsen’s original has found a new home with another owner, while the 50-percent-Trabi in JYSK Museum was donated by a JYSK fan.

Sleeping events for influencers, Poland

JYSK Poland organised a special event to promote sleeping products and to strengthen JYSK’s image as being experts within sleeping. In the specially arranged space, a wide range of mattresses, duvets, linen, and the new indoor products were displayed.

Two JYSK Store Managers and Sleep Academy trainers guided the visitors and answered any questions they would have about sleeping.

The content from the event reached around 800,000 followers on Instagram.

Raising money for children with cancer, Norway

JYSK Norway collaborated with the Norwegian Childhood Cancer Society in 2022. The collaboration involved a football campaign that raised money for children with cancer. JYSK Norway plans to participate again in the same campaign next time.

Currently, JYSK Norway is collaborating with the Norwegian Childhood Cancer Society as well. This time the collaboration involves a marketing campaign called “Golden Dreams” in Norway.

The campaign involves promotion of sleeping products in the GOLD category. For every pillow sold in the periods, JYSK donates 10 NOK to the NGO. The campaign will run over several periods in JYSK's 106 stores in Norway through 2023. First campaign will start in the middle of February.
