Considering a higher demand in the field of decorative and furniture fabrics, Heimtextil which takes place from January 12-15, 2016 is expanding the size of the Window and Upholstery segments.

According to a Messe Frankfurt press release, the organiser of the fair, due to this development, these segments will occupy a large area in Hall 4.0 in addition to Halls 3.0 and 4.1.

“Last year, several renowned manufacturers of decorative and furniture fabrics said they would like to exhibit again, but could not accommodate them due to insufficient room,” Heimtextil director Ulrike Wechsung said.

“For Heimtextil 2016, however, we have been able to make available a large area of Hall 4.0 in addition to the existing exhibition space in Halls 3.0 and 4.1, from relocation of the 'Theme Park' to Hall 6,” she added.

“In other words, we have been able to cater very well for the current boom in furniture and decorative fabrics,” Wechsung informed.

Companies returning to Heimtextil in 2016 include Enzo Degli, Luilor, Texao, Marzotto Lab, Ratti Spa and Pozzi Arturo from Italy, Libeco-Lagae, Verbatex and Annabel Textiles from Belgium and Penelope from Turkey.

In Hall 4.0, Heimtextil will present a comprehensive spectrum of ultra-modern technologies from the world's leading digital printing machine manufacturers.

Among the companies taking part in this segment are Hewlett Packard, Epson, Durst, Xeikon, Mimaki, MS Printing Solutions, Kornit, Reggiani and MTEX Solutions.

As in the past, the European Digital Textile Conference by WTiN will be held on the first day of Heimtextil 2016 in 'Saal Europa' of Hall 4.

Additionally, there will be an exhibition and the presentation of the WTiN Award in Hall 4.0 for the first time.

Adjoining the digital-print segment, the new 'Print IT Digital' café reflects this theme and will be a meeting place for the sector.

The 'Designlive' area will once again be located in Hall 4.2, and give over 200 international design studios, the chance to show their creative inspirations for home and household textiles. (AR)
