Nearly seven months prior to the beginning of the international trade fair for home and contract textiles (8 through 11 January 2014), the high number of registrations is very promising: “The textile industry continues to rely on Heimtextil for impetus at the beginning of the year,” explains Olaf Schmidt, Vice President of Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt.
“The large number of registrations we have received so far and, in particular, the fact that so many prominent European manufacturers again will exhibit here show that industry leaders around the world are convinced of Heimtextil’s portfolio and global attractiveness.”
Registrations for the trade fair have increased continuously over the past years, a clear sign of the steady upward trend.
Moreover, Hall 3.1 continues to be extremely well received. “Jobs in the booming crafts sector are in high demand, a fact that has been demonstrated recently by the large number of registrations received from renowned returning companies. We are extremely satisfied with the acceptance so far,” says Ulrike Wechsung, Director of Home Textiles.
Already Chivasso, Erfurt and Zimmer+Rohde, three top- level organisations in the wallpaper segment, have announced their return. As in the past, German companies include A.S. Création and Rasch.
Furthermore, other editeurs from their direct environment again have registered for participation: Diabolo and N.V. Wind of Belgium and Clarke & Clarke of Great Britain, Dedar of Italy and Alhambra Internacional of Spain. In Hall 3.0, the Deco Team made up of Alfred Apelt, Gardisette, HECO Textilverlag, Höpke, Porschen, Sonnhaus, Stoeckel & Grimmler and Unland will showcase its extensive traditional presentation.
Fabrics from Belgium and Italy
The product offerings displayed in Hall 4.1 will be extended by Belgium-based decoration and furniture textile specialist Deltracon.
Similar to a series of top Italian producers – among them Alois Tessitura Serica, Para, Pienostile, Pozzi Arturo and Viganò – Deltracon has exhibited at Heimtextil repeatedly. Yet another highlight from Italy: the Consorzio Promozione Tendaggio group made up of Casalegno Tendaggi, Clerion, Fiorete Group, Giber, Manifattura Fossa Divisione della Danzo, Mario Cavelli and Sirio Tendaggi will exhibit its premium-class fabrics.
In the “sun” product segment in Hall 5.1, Decorail of Belgium will join the exhibitors for the first time; Maron of Switzerland has exhibited a number of times and will return again in January. Further exhibitors in this segment include Erfal, Gardinia Home Decor, Kadeco, Liedeco, MHZ and Teba of Germany, as well as Coulisse of the Netherlands.
