Within just a few months, more than 75 exhibitors have already signalled "strong interest" in participating in Heimtextil's new Carpets & Rugs product segment, which extends over an entire hall level (5.1), reports show organiser Messe Frankfurt.
The positive response comes from a wide range of nations, including Egypt, Bangladesh, China, Greece, India, Italy and Turkey. Starting with the next edition, Heimtextil is thus expanding its global range of home and household textiles even further, to include a product segment that it says is in high demand - and creating added value for a large number of visiting buyers.
"The high number of new exhibitors underlines the positive response to the launch of the Carpets & Rugs product segment and offers buyers the opportunity to network with new suppliers. This rounding off makes Heimtextil an even more diverse and comprehensive business platform," says Bettina Bär, director of Heimtextil's home textiles segment.
“We are very pleased about the strong presence of international manufacturers, whose pronounced degree of professionalisation, outstanding quality and strong commitment to environmental protection and corporate social responsibility play a significant role in the global carpet business. The high degree of internationalisation at Heimtextil enables them to network, especially with new contacts from relevant sales markets such as North America, Europe or the UAE."
In addition to Hall 5.1, buyers will find a joint area with contract carpet exhibitors in Hall 4.0.
Heimtextil will be held from 9-12th January 2024.
