YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2015-08-09 11:00:00 – FRANKFURT

Heimtextil, today has an excellent standing as the leading global trade fair for home and contract textiles trade show is expanding the window and upholstery segments due to increased demand for decorative and furniture fabrics this time which will take place from Jan. 12-15, Messe Frankfurt announced.

For Heimtextil 2016, the window and upholstery categories will occupy a large area of Hall 4.0 in addition to the existing exhibition space in Halls 3.0 and 4.1, thanks to the relocation of the ‘Theme Park’ in Hall 6. In other words, they have been able to cater very well for the current boom in furniture and decorative fabrics.

Hall 4.0 will also offer more space for the expanding digital-print segment. There, Heimtextil presents a comprehensive spectrum of technologies from leading print-machine manufacturers including Hewlett Packard, Epson, Durst, Xeikon, Mimaki, MS Printing Solutions, Kornit, Reggiani and MTEX Solutions.

As in the past, the European Digital Textile Conference by WTiN will be held on the first day of Heimtextil 2016 (Tuesday) in ‘Saal Europa’ of Hall 4. Additionally, there will be an exhibition and the presentation of the WTiN Award in Hall 4.0 for the first time.

Companies returning to Heimtextil in 2016 include Enzo Degli, Luilor, Texao, Marzotto Lab, Ratti Spa and Pozzi Arturo from Italy; Libeco-Lagae, Verbatex and Annabel Textiles from Belgium; and Penelope from Turkey.

The ‘Designlive’ area will once again be located in Hall 4.2, and will give more than 200 international design studios the chance to show their creative inspirations for home and household textiles.

Heimtextil Director Ulrike Wechsung said that last year, several renowned manufacturers of decorative and furniture fabrics expressed interest to exhibit again. Unfortunately, they could not accommodate them at that time due to insufficient room. Last year, more than 2,700 exhibitors and close to 67,000 visitors attended the event.
