180 exhibitors showcase innovations at DOMOTEX Middle East
Nov '13
DOMOTEX Middle East is the leading international trade fair for carpets and floor coverings for markets in Turkey and the Middle East. It took place in the IFM Istanbul Expo Center from 7 to 10 November and attracted 4,321 international trade visitors.

A total of 180 exhibitors from 16 countries used the show as a platform for making new business contacts and cultivating existing customer relationships. India, China, Iran and Germany showcased the diversity of their products at joint display stands. In all, the event occupied a net exhibition floor space of approximately 6,000 square metres.

Martin Folkerts, Director of Global Fairs at Deutsche Messe AG in Hannover, summed up the event as follows: “This year’s DOMOTEX Middle East was again a highly international event. Around 50 percent of the exhibitors came from abroad. During the four-day show, they met high-calibre industry professionals from Turkey and the Middle East.”

The visitors included wholesalers and retailers, decision-makers from the construction industry, architects, interior architects and project planners. Moreover, DOMOTEX Middle East was attended by numerous business delegations, with teams of experts coming from Lebanon, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Yemen, Oman, Iran and Iraq.

“The construction boom in Turkey continues unabated, as illustrated by the multitude of commercial and residential projects currently in progress. This situation has led to excellent sales opportunities for the carpet and floor coverings sector, which was clear from the mood of exhibitors at DOMOTEX Middle East 2013,” emphasized Folkerts at the end of the show.

An impressive number of world-wide leading companies presented a comprehensive range of carpets, floor coverings and services. The products on show included both hand-knotted and machine-made carpets, textile and resilient floor coverings, parquet and other wooden floors, laminates, floor coverings for sports facilities, fibres, yarns and woven materials. Visitors had the opportunity to view application and laying techniques as well as machines and state-of-the-art technologies.
