For the 2015 edition, Heimtextil said 68,000 trade visitors visited the fair as against 66,265 visitors in 2014.
“For the retail trade, Saturday is an important sales day. In this age of increasing online shopping, it is important that bricks-and-mortar trade retailers can offer their customers first-class products and services”, explains Detlef Braun from Messe Frankfurt.
2,759 exhibitors from 68 countries participated in the 2015 edition compared to 2,714 from 62 countries in the previous edition.
According to Messe Frankfurt, at the beginning of the new furnishing season, this year’s Heimtextil was able to boast the fifth increase running, in the number of exhibitors and thus send positive signals to the sector.
“This has been the most successful Heimtextil for many years and means we have extended our lead as the world’s most important event for home and contract textiles,” Detlef Braun.
According to a poll undertaken by the organisers, 95 per cent of all visitors said they achieved their goals for the fair, up 2 per cent compared to 2014).
There were particularly large increases in the number of European visitors from Great Britain, Italy and Spain.
From the Arabian Peninsula, more visitors came from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
A higher number of visitors also came to the fair from countries like Japan and the USA and as expected, Messe Frankfurt said, there was a decline in the visitor numbers from the Ukraine and Russia.
The premium segment for the bed, bathroom and table in Hall 11 were a source of exclusiveness, structure and orientation at Heimtextil 2015.
“The exhibitors in this hall made wonderful presentations and were able to reach their target group,” the organisers noted. (AR)
