This year will be DOMOTEX Middle East’s second time at its new location at the Istanbul Expo Center, having staged its successful debut there in November 2012 after an illustrious six years in Dubai.

The upcoming season, which runs from 7 to 10 November 2013, will further cement the reputation of DOMOTEX Middle East as the leading trade fair for carpets and floor coverings in Turkey and the Middle East.

“Turkey is an up-and-coming market of key importance for the carpets and floor coverings sector,” said Martin Folkerts, Director of Global Fairs at Deutsche Messe, the company that organizes the fair. “For its exhibitors, DOMOTEX Middle East is a gateway to new markets – and not just in Turkey, but in the Arab countries as well.

The 2012 premiere of the Istanbul incarnation of DOMOTEX Middle East featured 222 exhibitors from 28 nations and occupied more than 7,770 square meters (83,600 sq. ft) of display space. More than half of the exhibitors came from countries other than Turkey, as did 21 percent of the fair’s 5,100 trade visitors. Most of the international trade visitors came from Iran, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

This year, the organizer of DOMOTEX Middle East is putting together an extensive lineup of innovations and exciting new floor coverings to build on the success achieved at last year’s Istanbul premiere.

“We’ll be continuing the DOMOTEX Middle East success story this November with an even stronger overall focus on quality,” Mr. Folkerts said. “The fair is the ideal place for businesses to maintain existing customer and supplier relationships, lay the groundwork for new relationships and find the partners they need in order to access new markets.”

The 2013 exhibition program includes hand-made and machine-woven carpets and rugs; hallway runners and mats; textile floor coverings; resilient floor coverings; and laminate, parquet and other types of wood flooring.

There will also be displays of textile machinery and accessories, not to mention fibers, yarns and textiles, a strong showing of specialized floor coverings and synthetic turf products for sports facilities, plus laying, cleaning and application technologies, natural stone, marble and ceramic tiles. “DOMOTEX Middle East will preview the trends, designs and materials that will define the flooring markets of Turkey and the Middle East over the coming year,” commented Mr. Folkerts.
