This weekend, Heimtextil in Frankfurt am Main comes to a close after a week of innovations in Germany. As an international trade fair for home and contract textiles, the event attracted over 2700 exhibitors and roughly 67000 trade visitors.
Throughout the four days of the event in mid-January, the trade fair serves as a business and information platform for manufacturers, retailers and designers from around the world. Here, international exhibitors present their products to a wide trade audience on the Messe Frankfurt exhibition grounds.
As the first marketing and ordering event of the year, Heimtextil showcases new home and contract textiles with the latest innovations and trends for the seasons ahead. By presenting bed, bath and table linens as well as floor and window coverings, upholstery and sun protection systems, Heimtextil covers the entire home and household textiles portfolio from across the globe.
The trade fair is complemented by a number of special presentations, lectures, award ceremonies and industry events. The annual trend presentation is an example of one of the event’s focus areas. Heimtextil Trends are scouted out by a team of international design firms who look at different developments at the outset of each season and determine the most significant and influential international trends. The results are presented in a book and a special show during the trade fair. Heimtextil Trends provide product developers, decorators and designers with orientation points.
