DOMOTEX underscores reputation as world's leading floor coverings event
Hannover. Innovations, inspiration and sales – those are the words that best summarize DOMOTEX 2016. 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 special Innovations@DOMOTEX showcase underscored the tradeshow’s reputation as a global magnet for decision-makers and a prime venue for unveiling new innovations.
“We are delighted with the show’s performance. It had everything: a highly attractive lineup of exhibitors and products, solid attendance figures, high-caliber trade visitors, a great many innovations and a highly international mix of exhibitors and visitors. This is something which was immediately evident – at every stand, in every hall,” said Dr. Jochen Köckler, the Deutsche Messe Managing Board member in charge of DOMOTEX. “This year’s DOMOTEX got international trading off to a splendid start, and has given the carpets and floor coverings industry every reason to be optimistic about the year ahead,” he added.
DOMOTEX 2016 attracted some 45,000 visitors from 100 different countries. Total attendance was thus slightly higher than for the most recent comparable DOMOTEX in 2013. The majority of visitors came from European Union countries. A significant upswing was noted in attendance from the Middle East and South, East and Central Asia (up 29%).
This year’s DOMOTEX visitors were also highly qualified, with approximately 90 percent reporting they either were buyers or involved in their companies’ purchasing decisions, and that they had come to Hannover with specific investment plans. More than 70 percent of all attendees were senior executives. The event was also a magnet for buyers from the interior decorating and furniture trades, and attendance on the part of skilled tradespeople and retail professionals was up over the most recent comparable show held in 2013. A rise in attendance was also noted for architects, interior designers and contract business professionals.
World’s largest display of carpets and floor coverings
DOMOTEX 2016 was staged in a total of 12 halls, making it the world’s largest display of carpets and floor coverings. 1,441 exhibitors from 59 different countries were on hand to demonstrate their creativity and skill, and over 85 percent of these exhibitors came from abroad. DOMOTEX literally “floored” its audience with a stunning array of innovations across the featured product categories: resilient and textile floor coverings, parquet and laminate flooring, woven and tufted carpets and application and installation technologies. In the words of Dr. Köckler: “The focus at this year’s DOMOTEX has been on unconventional materials, newly interpreted designs and state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies. Sustainability has also been a key issue. One impressive trend observed is the comeback of the Persian rug as a trendy, contemporary ingredient of interior design.”
