As a world-leading trade fair for home and contract textiles, Heimtextil will present a fundamentally revised concept from 8-11 January 2019 – with more floor space, all kinds of furnishing inspiration and new synergies for buyers.
Based on discussions with exhibitors and also visitor surveys, Messe Frankfurt has developed a new Heimtextil concept. ‘From the perspective of buyers in particular, we are repositioning Heimtextil 2019 and the way we group themes and product segments to better suit target groups. In this way, synergies can be optimally exploited. In addition, the demand for stand space on the exhibitor side has grown sharply in some product segments in recent years’, says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt.
The opportunity to optimise the concept is not least due to major construction measures currently being implemented at the Messe Frankfurt exhibition site: the new hall 12 will be erected on the western side of the site and will be available to Heimtextil for the first time in 2019. Further structural measures are to follow around halls 5 and 6.
An area full of inspiration and future technologies is being built in hall 3.0: design studios and CAD/CAM suppliers will be given a new space here. Under the title “Textile Design”, they form the world's largest design platform of their kind. Digital printer manufacturers and Heimtextil's newly designed trend area will also find their home here in the future. Heimtextil thus brings together the progressive themes of textile design, digital printing and trends over one hall level.
The next Heimtextil, international trade fair for home and contract textiles, will be held in Frankfurt am Main from 8 to 11 January 2019.
