Participate at the world’s leading trade show of the floor covering industry

Individualization, innovation and modernization– those are the words that best represent DOMOTEX 2018. The world’s flagship trade fair for carpets and floor coverings served once again as the No. 1 meeting place for a vibrant sector and its clientele. Following four action-packed days, the show’s organizers at Deutsche Messe declared a solid performance for the event. Its highly international mix of exhibitors and attendees as well as the success of the new “Framing Trends” showcase as part of the keynote theme “UNIQUE YOUNIVERSE” underscored the trade fair’s reputation as a global magnet for decision-makers and a prime venue for unveiling new innovations. Another highlight of DOMOTEX 2018 was the Carpet Design Awards 2018 in eight different categories.

The new keynote theme for 2019 will be “CREATE’N’CONNECT”, highlighting the trend towards connectivity. Interesting installations and visionary presentations from exhibiting companies and universities will emphasize “CREATE’N’CONNECT” at its best.

The new hall layout being introduced in 2018 was a huge success reaching the main goal of making it more transparent for trade visitors. As Carol Sebert, President and Co-Founder of Creative Matters said: “I believe Framing Trends makes it possible to look at carpets and interior furnishing from a completely different and novel perspective”, Hall 9 will again feature the special “Framing Trends” this year focusing on the new keynote theme “CREATE’N’CONNECT”.
