Domotex 2016 closed its doors with 1,441 exhibitors from 59 countries and 45,000 trade visitors from more than 100 nations, which also includes a 29 per cent rise in Asian visitors over the previous show.

According to a press release from the organisers, Domotex delivered fresh momentum for the international floor coverings industry, serving as a powerful driver of sales, trends and innovations.

“Visitors from around the world found all the latest trends and innovations on display in 12 different exhibition halls, setting the stage for order-placing and fruitful dialogue with business associates,” they added.

Out of a total of some 27,500 visitors from abroad, around 50 per cent came from EU countries, with another 25 per cent coming from Asia and eight per cent from the Americas.

Paul De Cock, president of Unilin Flooring Division said, “Our stand attracted a steady stream of visitors, resulting in lively business and lots of purchase orders and we feel upbeat about the business year ahead.”

Dr. Ali Ipektchi of Ipek A. Ipektchi GmbH & Co. KG added, “As exhibitors of Persian carpets and rugs, we see Domotex as the most important international business event.”

“We took lots of orders and engaged in many promising talks with business partners and potential customers and at this edition, Persian carpets and area rugs enjoyed even greater prominence,” he stated.

“Exhibitors were delighted with the high level of decision-making authority among the show's attendees, with more than 72 per cent of them being top managers who influence purchasing decisions,” the organisers informed.

The majority of visitors at this year's Domotex were retail and wholesale buyers, while the fair also attracted architects, interior designers and contractors as well as skilled trade people.

Under the slogan 'Tread on Me', Domotex invited visitors to 'walk all over' the latest trends, including a wide range of natural-look rugs and carpets.

The Innovations@Domotex showcase put a big spotlight on highly innovative floor coverings and which proved highly popular among the show's visitors, drawing special attention to 84 selected innovations.

“This made it easy for trade visitors to get a concise look at the sector's hottest innovations, thus providing valuable orientation for the year ahead,” the organisers observed.

Other standout attractions included the Innovations@Domotex Dialogues spotlighting key industry topics by means of presentations and panel discussions by and with top international designers like Piero Lissoni.

The focus was on current design trends and advances for hotels, catering, offices, healthcare, shopping, retail and home interiors.

User-centric guided tours provided in-depth coverage of the topics addressed, and featured innovations provided architects, interior designers and planners with an overview of the varied range of floor coverings. (AR)
