Messe Frankfurt has announced that Heimtextil will take place as a one-time summer special from 21st-24th June, 2022, parallel to Techtextil and Texprocess, trade fairs for technical textiles and nonwovens and the processing of textile and flexible materials.
The show organiser says the decision to hold a summer edition this year is the result of a positive vote from the home and contract textile industry, and that exhibitors and buyers will benefit from "valuable synergy effects" between the three international trade fair formats.
“It is great to see the high level of trust that our exhibitors have in us, even after more than two years of the pandemic," says Olaf Schmidt, VP textiles and textile technologies, Messe Frankfurt. "The results of the vote and the first confirmations of participation show that the need to finally return to personal business meetings and new global contacts in face-to-face exchanges before the end of this year is as strong as ever – even if the reunion this year will take place in a different setting than usual."
Several brands have already confirmed their participation, including long-standing Heimtextil exhibitors such as the Jover Group, the Lenzing Group and Hohmann Weberei.
