The biggest international trade fair for home and contract textiles will take place from January 12- 15 in Messe Frankfurt. Held each year for four days in January, it has been the sector’s first trade fair of the year for decades and is the foremost platform for manufacturers, retailers and designers. Heimtextil will assemble nearly 3,000 exhibitors this year, whose range of products will cover the world’s largest international selection of contract textiles for the hotel trade, architectural use and interior design. In addition to the product show, the expected 68,000 visitors can enjoy film screenings, presentations, workshops, informative lectures, and make use of the community area for networking and breaks.

In one of the fair’s latest additions, the Heimtextil Theme Park showcases innovative design and future-oriented themes, offering an excellent overview of current and future trends. And in order to involve young designers and startups, the fair gives the next generation the opportunity to take part in international competitions.
