Top young design will be at 'New@More' at Heimtextil 2013

Jun '12
Against the background of an increase in the number of exhibitors at the last Heimtextil and a positive economic climate in Germany, all the signs are that Heimtextil 2013 in Frankfurt am Main will be distinguished by a very large number of top exhibitors.

With around seven months still to go before the doors open (from 9 to 12 January 2013), the international trade fair for home and contract textiles is already almost fully booked up. Moreover, several renowned exhibitors have announced that they will take part in the coming Heimtextil after a period of absence.

“Even at this early stage, we can say that Heimtextil 2013 will be an exceptional event – with numerous top companies that are either making their debut or returning after a break. The current registration level gives us good ground to take an optimistic view of the future and underscores the positive developments in the sector”, explains Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies, Messe Frankfurt.

With 2,634 exhibitors and growth of 2.4 percent in comparison to the year before, Heimtextil 2012 represented an excellent start to the new season. The economic statistics for Germany also confirm the upward trend.

“The successful course of business at Heimtextil 2012 and the buoyant economy at the beginning of the year, which resulted in an increase of a good four percent in sales, reinforce the predominantly good and confident outlook of the German home-textile industry for the coming months”, adds Martin Auerbach, Director of the Association of the German Home Textile Industry (Verband der Deutschen Heimtextilien-Industrie).”

At the beginning of the year, there was a positive sales trend in the fields of furniture and decorative fabrics, carpets and bedding. Growth was generated in both the domestic (2.1 percent) and foreign markets, where the rate of growth was much higher (10.3 percent). The export quota was 25.3 percent (2011: 23.9 percent).

A number of renowned manufacturers have announced they will be taking part in Heimtextil again.

Tissat Deslee from Belgium will be back in the 'window' and 'upholstery' product groups in Hall 4.1: “Without doubt, Heimtextil is the most important trade fair for decorative fabrics and the whole world meets in Frankfurt every January. After a three-year break, we are very much looking forward to returning to Heimtextil”, says Koen Deruyck, General Manager of Tissat Deslee. Several returning and new companies are expected at the British Pavilion in Hall 4.1, the première of which was a great success last January.

“We returned to Heimtextil in 2012 and were surprised by the quality and the variety of visitors to our stand. Hence, it didn't take long for us to decide to take part again in 2013”, explains Blair Macnaughton, Managing Director of The Isle Mill.

The international sector with its key players meets in Frankfurt am Main every January at the world's leading trade fair for textile interior design. The renowned companies to exhibit in the 'window' and 'upholstery' product groups in Hall 3.0 include Albani and Gustav Gerster from Germany, IFI from Greece and Bandex from Austria.
