FRANKFURT, Germany -- Next year's edition of Heimtextil, the largest trade show in the world for home textiles, will increase its focus on textiles design by revamping the design area in Hall 4.2.
"By giving our design area a makeover, we are looking to highlight Heimtextil's position as the world's largest platform for textile design. Our visitors will be offered a new contemporary showcase for firstclass design work," says Ulrike Wechsung, Heimtextil director.
The exhibit will feature the work of approximately 150 international exhibitors, including a number of studios that will show at the fair for the first time. The presentation will also include applications of CAD/CAM and ink jet.
Heimtextil exhibitors will be allowed to preview the design area Jan. 8 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The fair will run from Jan. 9-12.
