Home & contract textiles fair occupies growth segments

Jan '07
A great start! The home-textiles sector is banking on new mar-ket potential and is gathering momentum! And this is confirmed by the indices with which Heimtextil 2007 has opened the new fair and exhibition year: not only more exhibitors and exhibition space but also greater satisfaction with the results of the fair and a significantly more optimistic assessment of the economic outlook for the sector.

"For the first time in years, the atmos-phere at the Heimtextil is really buoyant. Our exhibitors confirm that visitor quality is high and that there has been a significant increase in orders placed", says Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt GmbH, summarising the results of the fair. "The number of visitors has remained stable at over 89,000. We are very pleased with the overall result."

Under the motto 'Room follows Fantasy', the world's biggest trade fair for home and contract textiles presented the textile trends for the 2007 / 2008 season in Frankfurt am Main from 10 to 13 January 2007. Compared to the last Heimtextil in 2006, the number of exhibitors climbed by 100 to 2,907 (+3.4 %) while the number of visitors from outside Germany rose by almost 4 % with significantly more coming from Spain, Turkey and Russia.

As expected, the number of German visitors declined – by about 5 %.

The results of the exhibitor and visitor polls were very good: the over-all level of visitor satisfaction reached 94 %. Even better was the degree of satisfaction among German exhibitors: three quarters said they are very pleased with the results of the fair. This represents an increase of 10 % compared to the previous year and is in line with a much more optimistic estimation of the economic outlook for the sec-tor on both the visitor and exhibitor sides.
