After a two-year drought, DOMOTEX took place in Hannover, Germany, on 12-15 January 2023. DOMOTEX still remains the industry’s most important trade, innovation and trend platform. During the four days of the exhibition of carpets and floor coverings, with 730 exhibitors in eight halls, thousands of visitors came from all over, with 69% from abroad.
Sustainability the hallmark
Sustainability, international attendance and visitor quality were the hallmarks of this year’s event. “We were overwhelmed by the positive response as well as the energetic spirit of this year’s DOMOTEX. Exhibitors and visitors alike were delighted to finally come together again at their industry trade show to meet face to face, exchange ideas, make new contacts and close deals,” says Sonia Wedell-Castellano, global director of DOMOTEX.
Visitors exceeded expectations
Many people use DOMOTEX to meet existing and potential suppliers in the shortest possible time, with approximately 50% of the decision-makers placing orders with exhibiting companies during their stay.
This year’s DOMOTEX exceeded all expectations. “We were pleasantly surprised by the number of visitors we welcomed to our stand after the pandemic. Due to the difficult world situation, we did not expect such a lively turnout this year. For DOMOTEX 2024, we would like to see an even stronger event with a united flooring industry,” reveals Niklas Håkansson, managing director of Välinge.
The heart of the event
The special show, “The Green Collection”, and the conference programme, “DOMOTEX on Stage”, under the guiding theme “Floored by Nature”, formed the heart of the event. Here the megatrend of sustainability was staged and discussed. Visitors to the materials show were particularly impressed by the variety of materials on display and the associated possibilities for sustainable design.
