Heimtextil is seeing strong national and global demand across all product segments for its upcoming edition, taking place in Frankfurt am Main from 9-12th January.
More than 2600 exhibitors are set to present their new products, and the global trade fair for home and contract textiles will also see the launch of Econogy, a realignment of sustainable formats in the global Texpertise Network. Econogy aims to standardise the evaluation criteria of all Messe Frankfurt textile events and create cross-fair transparency for resource-saving products and exhibitors.
Heimtextil 2024 has already recorded strong registration figures across all product segments, says Olaf Schmidt, the show's VP textiles and textile technologies: "Heimtextil provides a bundled and therefore efficient market overview of all global trends in the home and contract textiles industry on a central platform over four days. In 2024, we are pleased to be able to intensify this experience with the launch of the new Carpets & Rugs product segment and an increased number of exhibitors."
Heimtextil will be expanded by two new halls – Hall 5.1 for the aforementioned Carpets & Rugs product segment, and Hall 10.4 for Asian Selection exhibitors in the home textiles segment. Hall 3, which will serve as a creative hub for the Heimtextil Trends 24/25 [see related] and exhibitors from the wall decoration, textile design and textile technology segments, will also be reopened.
A large number of brands and companies have also confirmed their participation in the Smart Bedding product area in Hall 11.0, including Advansa Marketing, Badenia Bettcomfort, Brinkhaus, Heinrich Häussling & Centa Star & Frankenstolz Schlafkomfort, John Cotton, Lenzing, Sasa Polyester, Sanders-Kauffmann, Traumina, Velamen and Wendre.
