Industry rates DOMOTEX HANNOVER 2007 a huge success

Jan '07
DOMOTEX 2007 was held during 13 to 16 January, 2007 in Hannover Fairgrounds.

DOMOTEX HANNOVER 2007 came to a close on Tuesday this week and is being hailed by the international carpet and floor-coverings industry as a huge success. Industry representatives were extremely pleased with the show, saying it had delivered the high volume and caliber of business leads they had anticipated going into the event.

The global showcase for carpets and floor coverings was attended by 44,000 trade visitors from more than 100 nations, up slightly on the attendance figures of 43,855 in 2005, the last directly comparable year.

This year there were 1,360 exhibitors (2005: 1,244), and the net display space occupied by exhibitors was up slightly to 90,142 square meters (2005: 90,124 square meters). Stephan Ph. Kühne, Member of the Managing Board of Hannover-based Deutsche Messe AG, summed up the event as follows: "Our exhibitors and visitors are delighted. DOMOTEX has once again set the beat for the new floor coverings business year. You couldn't help but notice the positive mood swing."

DOMOTEX's international appeal continues to grow unabated, with 80 percent of all exhibitors and 60 percent of all visitors at this year's event coming from outside Germany, as compared with 78 and 56 percent, respectively, in 2005. "This confirms DOMOTEX's leading status among international trade fairs of its kind," reported Kühne.
