DOMOTEX, set to return from 12-15 Jan 2023, will have a host of new features and will include a modern and optimised arrangement of the two newly introduced DOMOTEX labels, “Rugs” and “Flooring”, as well as an adapted hall structure that will facilitate orientation.
“At the next DOMOTEX, there will be a lot of new things to discover. We have used the last year intensively to develop new participation opportunities for companies and to create a new brand experience for our trade show guests,” said Sonia Wedell-Castellano, global director of DOMOTEX at Deutsche Messe.
According to Wedell-Castellano, DOMOTEX will focus on sustainability and the circular economy, in light of how the past two years of the pandemic have shown that resource efficiency, environmentally friendly products and production processes, but also difficult supply chains are increasingly coming to the fore.
“With its special showcase ‘The Green Collection’, DOMOTEX is focusing on the issue of sustainability and offering exhibitors and visitors a hands-on experience of the keynote theme,” explained Wedell-Castellano.
Among a few of the exhibitors that will be featured in DOMOTEX 2023 are CFL Flooring, Design Parquet, Falquon, Lamett, Li&Co, NOX and Swisskrono in the parquet, luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and laminate segments.
According to Deutsche Messe, the new “Rugs” and “Flooring” hall layouts will cover the northern section of the exhibition grounds and will bring together the product groups of the two labels. It thus enables trade show attendees from the wholesale and retail trade, architecture, interior design, handicrafts and the furniture and furnishing trade to find their way around more easily.
Furthermore, DOMOTEX 23 will offer new formats and points of contact in all product areas. These include the new Mood Spaces, booths designed by interior designers that represent current trends and express the floor and carpet as an integrated solution.
Likewise, in the new display area “The Green Collection”, the theme of sustainability will be focused on in a central area of the exhibition hall. In line with the keynote theme “Floored By Nature”, the new area will provide an overview of products and production processes from carpet and flooring manufacturers that stand for sustainability.
“The Green Collection” will cover topics like eco-friendly products, healthy products, sustainable production and social responsibility. Current research projects and thus a glimpse into the future of carpeting and flooring are also offered. In addition, certifiers have the opportunity to present themselves.
