Heimtextil evolves to meet demand

The next edition of Heimtextil, the leading international trade fair for home and contract textiles, will be the first of a new show format that takes place from Tuesday to Friday – 12-15th January, in Frankfurt.

Last year, more than 2700 exhibitors and close to 67,000 visitors attended the event. Ahead of the 2016 edition, organiser Messe Frankfurt has experienced an overwhelming number of stand registrations, including many new exhibitors.

Developments for the 2016 show mirror the changing marketplace. After seeing high demand for decorative textiles and furniture textiles, Heimtextil has expanded the layout for this product segment. Digital textile printing technology has seen significant growth in the home and contract textile market, so Heimtextil 2016 will increase the area devoted to printing machine manufacturers.

The Green Village, which provided a centre of expertise and discussions on the subject of sustainability last year, will be bolstered by the addition of special days devoted to the topic, on the Wednesday and the Thursday.
