Heimtextil ‘almost fully booked’
Textiles exhibition Heimtextil has revealed its is ‘almost fully booked’ more then seven months before the 2017 show.
Many halls are fully booked for the 10-13 January show and the number of stand registrations for the upcoming event already signals that there will be an increase in the number of exhibitors and exhibition space thanks both to new registrations as well as exhibitors looking to expand their existing stands.
Organisers say they are particularly pleased about the numerous registrations from European exhibitors who want to showcase their products. ‘We work continually on developing the trade fair and are always in close contact with the industry', says Olaf Schmidt, Messe Frankfurt vice president textiles & textile technologies. 'The excellent situation with registrations clearly shows that we are on the right track and just how important Heimtextil is as an international world-leading trade fair for the industry. With its new products and trends, it kicks off the upcoming season and is an indispensable platform for companies and trade visitors alike, from purchasers and designers to interior decorators, hoteliers and architects'.
With a new location in hall 6.0, the field of digital printing once again has more space in which to expand. Leading printer manufacturers from across the world will present their innovations and technologies in the field of textiles here. In addition to well-known exhibitors such as Epson, Hewlett Packard, Kiian, Mimaki and MS Printing, new companies such as Matsui and Schoeller Technocell will complement the line-up in 2017. SPG Print will also once again be present in the "Digital Print" area in hall 6.0.
