During the one-time Heimtextil Summer Special that just ended, the industry’s great need for personal encounters, tactile impressions and creative input became apparent. The next Heimtextil, leading international trade fair for home and contract textiles, will start the new season as the first event of the year in January 2023.
Over 2,200 international exhibitors from 50 countries have registered for the event. The internationality of the event also remains high. Heimtextil 2023 provides a range of relevant market players and complements the benefits for buyers with an extensive supporting program.
Commenting ahead of the event, which takes place from 10 to 13 January 2023, organisers said: “The theme of sustainability will be clearly visible at Heimtextil 2023. With the exhibitor guide, “Green Directory” as well as the “Green Village”, that offers a platform for discussion with the seal providers, Heimtextil offers important points of orientation in the jungle of the many sustainable offers.
“A new feature is that the Trend Space will be presented in Hall 9.0. Circular economy also characterizes the staging of Heimtextil Trends 23/24 itself: With the “Material Manifesto”, the responsible trend office FranklinTill commits itself to a design of the area that is as sustainable as possible with predominantly recycled materials and elements as well as a strict waste avoidance strategy.
“DecoTeam, the community of interests of German home textile suppliers, is offering a far reaching event program as part of Heimtextil 2023. The focus will be on the topic of online marketing, with keynote speeches by Monika Winden and a subsequent YouTube workshop. A panel discussion with interesting discussion partners will also provide exciting insights into the topics of sustainability and social media marketing.
“With the Heimtextil Conference Sleep & More, visitors in 2023 will again be offered a top-notch lecture program for the areas of health, sustainability and the hotel industry. Over the course of four days, experts will speak about the latest findings, developments and trends in the field of healthy sleep from various perspectives of the industry.
“With the “New & Next” program for young talents, young talents and start-up companies are given the opportunity to present themselves in the environment of the international industry. The fresh ideas and products of the New & Next exhibitors make a valuable contribution to the multi-faceted Heimtextil spectrum.”
