Promising a unique platform for home and contract textiles, interior design and trends, Heimtextil is primed to open the 2023 show season when it returns in full to Messe Frankfurt from 10-13th January.

During this year's one-off Heimtextil Summer Special, the industry's need for personal encounters, tactile impressions and creative input became apparent, states the show's organiser, revealing that more than 2200 exhibitors have registered for the event.

Thematically, the overarching theme of sustainability will be clearly visible at Heimtextil 2023. With the exhibitor guide, Green Directory, as well as the Green Village which offers a platform for discussion with the approved players, Heimtextil offers important points of orientation in a jungle of sustainable offers. The popular Green Tours will again guide interested visitors to relevant exhibitors to learn more about their sustainability strategies and products – while the impressive Future Materials Library will be presented again as part of the Trend Space at Heimtextil 2023.

The international collection of material innovations in the interior sector is curated by trend forecasting agency FranklinTill, which is also responsible for the conception of the Trend Space at Heimtextil 2023. The design and trend area will be developed beforehand by international design offices stijlinstituut amsterdam (Netherlands), FranklinTill (Great Britain) and SPOTT Design & Business (Denmark).

Under the title Textiles Matter, Heimtextil Trends 23/24 aims to set standards for the future-oriented and sustainable textile furnishings of tomorrow, with a particular focus on the circular economy. The Trend Space will be presented in Hall 9.0 in 2023.

Other features include: Interior.Architecture.Hospitality, a specialist programme for interior designers, architects and hospitality experts; LECTURES, in which renowned architects and well-known hotel experts will present their work and discuss current industry topics; The Contract Guide, which will list all the suppliers of contract textiles; an event programme focused on online marketing from DecoTeam; the Heimtextil Conference Sleep & More; and the New & Next programme for young talents and start-ups.
