This business platform is the ideal meeting place at which to forge new global contacts and discover the upcoming innovations and trends in interior textiles. With its new products and trends, Heimtextil kicks off the season at Messe Frankfurt, Frankfurt am Main and gives visitors important impulses and inspiration from all over the world.

Regular visitors will be glad to hear that the successful Trend Theme Park is set to return. Here, visitors are invited on a journey into the unknown. The Theme Park has been specially designed and curated by leading industry designers and trend forecasters based on their prognoses for the textile industry for 2017/2018.

French creative trend bureau Carlin has been chosen to take lead on the 2017 Theme Park, and will present trends in various themed worlds. The trailblazing nature of the exhibit makes it a popular point of call. The inspirational area, centrally situated in hall 6.0, is decorated with textiles by exhibitors whose products can be ordered directly on site at the fair.

This edition’s theme, Explorations, aims to take visitors on a journey of discovery for the senses. Driven by the vision of reinvigorating scientific curiosity, the Theme Park will offer a variety of innovative materials, textures and new patterns, and invites visitors to see the rest of the trade fair through fresh eyes.
