Domotex wraps up with nearly 45000 global visitors
Feb '14
DOMOTEX 2014 – the world’s flagship fair for carpets and floor coverings – came to a highly successful conclusion on Tuesday, January 14, having attracted a total of approximately 45,000 visitors from more than 80 nations. 
“DOMOTEX 2014 has delivered an impressive performance thanks to its uniquely international appeal, high attendance, the well-received ‘Innovations@DOMOTEX’ concept, plus a considerably more buoyant mood in the industry” stated Dr. Jochen Köckler as the Managing Board at Deutsche Messe responsible for DOMOTEX, who added: “Staging DOMOTEX as a key business platform and idea-giver at the outset of the year makes it an extremely attractive event for carpet and floor covering buyers and decision-makers from around the globe.”
1,350 companies from 57 different nations showcased their latest products and collections at the Hannover Exhibition Center, with the industry making a strong showing in terms of quality and innovativeness.
“The huge array of invitingly cozy carpets, sophisticated parquet and laminate flooring, stylish designer floor coverings, and masterful hand-woven rugs on display sported captivating designs and an astounding variety of materials, colors and patterns which all testify to the highly innovative spirit of the international floor coverings industry – an industry which is clearly in great shape for the upcoming season,” said Köckler. 
The mood in the exhibition halls made it clear that the mood in the industry had taken a considerable turn for the better, with exhibitors speaking of greatly improved business prospects and an anticipated upturn in sales.
Innovations@DOMOTEX off to successful start
Making its debut this year, the “Innovations@DOMOTEX” showcase put a fresh spin on DOMOTEX as a trendsetting event with lots of fresh ideas to offer. The concept – which is aimed at sparking heightened interest in select innovations and designs on show by participating exhibitors – proved to be “a major success right from the start”, said Köckler. 
The more than 60 highlights featured within Innovations@DOMOTEX represented the “very essence of the tradeshow”, he continued, adding that “visitors gave top marks to the new showcase” and that it would now be a centerpiece of DOMOTEX for years to come.
Exhibitors, too, were full of praise for Innovations@DOMOTEX: “The new approach generated a lot of interest, and visitor traffic proved that it struck a nerve with attending professionals,” remarked Robert J. Munisteri, Director of International Sales at Masland Contract based in Saraland, Alabama.
