198 exhibitors, of which 33 were from the overseas carpet producing industry, came together at Domotex Turkey, which was held from May 25-28, 2015.

“33 of the foreign exhibitors came from different countries including Bangladesh, Belgium, China, France, Germany, India, Iran, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka and Uzbekistan,” a Domotex press release said.

Totally 8,734 visitors, mainly from Middle East, visited the exhibition where exhibitors showcased their unique designs and new collections produced with state-of-the-art technology.

Thousands of carpets were showcased during the show, and among them, one of the eye-catching products for visitors was a self-cleaning carpet developed using nano-technology.

The visitors watched the live demonstration of impermeability of nano-technological carpets, where the technology for the production of luxury cars has been adopted in carpet manufacturing.

Dr. Meriç Bebitoglu, general manager of Atlas Hali which produced the self-cleaning carpet said, “This year, we exhibited the new and more stain resistant version of our nano carpet innovation.”

“The nano carpet cleans itself continuously with the energy from light and indoor lighting and we are pleased for bringing this upgraded version of our invention at the exhibition this year,” he added.

Alexander Kühnel, general manager of Hannover Fairs Turkey, said, “Domotex Turkey showed the power of Turkey in machine-made carpet manufacturing once again.”

“On the other hand, it also proved its success to become an international platform for the Eurasian region with increasing number of international exhibitors and visitors this year,” he also added.

The visitors also found the opportunity to see thousands of modern or traditional carpet designs made of different materials such as wool, silk, cashmere, bamboo fibres and polyester.

On the other hand, various machinery technologies were also exhibited for the carpet manufacturing, which also featured robotic equipments.

Patrick Rieth, area sales manager of Superba said, “Domotex Turkey is a very good exhibition for us and Gaziantep as the place for Domotex is ideal, because most of the carpet production companies are here.”

“For us, the exhibition has proved to be very interesting and we have made very good contacts and learnt of new emerging projects,” Rieth informed.

Besides machine-made carpets, other product groups in the flooring industry, such as rugs and hand-made carpets, mats and resilient floorings and laminate were also showcased in the show. (AR)
