HANNOVER, Germany–Domotex Hannover, scheduled for Jan. 17 to 20, will attract 1,400 exhibitors from some 60 countries who will be presenting the latest products and innovations in carpets, textiles and resilient floor coverings, laminate floorings and wood parquet.
On a total display area of nearly 100,000 square feet, market-leading suppliers from Germany and many other countries will be giving a foretaste of future trends with new materials and all the latest combinations of color and pattern.
“Despite the current economic downturn, our exhibitor numbers are even higher than we had originally projected,” said Stephan Ph. Kühne, a member of the Board of Management at Deutsche Messe AG. “This shows that our exhibitors have clearly understood the importance of Domotex for the industry as a whole—and the key role that trade fairs play as a marketing instrument. It’s precisely when trading conditions are difficult that businesses need to make new contacts, stimulate the market and establish their presence in a competitive field.”
The main display categories at Domotex are handmade and machine-made carpets and rugs; fibers, yarns and textiles; wood and parquet flooring; and laminated coverings.
