cadex, the international event for connecting, learning and doing business in the design and architecture industry, will be held concurrently with DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR for the second year. Found in hall W5, cadex works as collective of architecture and design-related stimulating content and will generate three days of conferences, networking events, interactive activities, creative display and much more.

Exhibitors will also be given the opportunity to showcase their products to the audience before and during the show as part of the InnovAction Flooring programme. More than 500 new products have already been launched on the show’s dedicated online platform by over 400 exhibitors. Onsite, visitors will have the chance to preview and experience a selection of almost 50 new products displayed in the dedicated InnovAction Centres located in halls W1 and E3. In 2017, Mr. Ye Man – the renowned Chinese designer who represented China in the last Venice Biennale – will act as curator of the InnovAction display areas.

In collaboration with COVER magazine, this will be the first time the show hosts a “Luxury Brands” handmade carpet presentation. The presentation consists of an exclusive display area, which will feature a curated selection of high-end hand-made carpets from some of the top international rug brands, namely: Amadi Carpets, Ariana Rugs, Art Resources, Ayka Design, Creative Matters, Hossein Rezvani, Knots Rugs, New Moon, Rug Star, Samad, Tissage, Wool & Silk Rugs and Zollanvari. Luxury Brands’ area will be located in the heart of hall W5 where the hand-made carpet exhibitors will show their great variety of area rugs.
