Optimistic perspective for Heimtextil 2022

A promising number of registrations and a positive echo from the sector are encouraging signals for the restart of Heimtextil, January 11-14, 2022.

Personal discussions, physical product presentations and valuable inspiration – the call for an international and multifaceted meeting place for the sector is loud and clear seven months before the next scheduled edition of the trade fair. This is also reflected by the reassuringly high number of registrations already received after more than a year of pandemic and with seven months still to go before the leading trade fair for home and contract textiles opens its doors again. Thus, around 80 percent of exhibitors at Heimtextil 2020 are interested in taking part in the coming edition of the fair.

Trend Space and digital service

For visitors interested in design, the highlight of the programme of events in 2022 will once again be the Trend Space inspiration area in Hall 4.0. The coming edition will show how the pandemic has changed our lives and, therefore, the way we furnish our homes. In this connection, particular attention will be given to the mega subject of ‘new work’, which will be viewed with new facets.

Digital services will supplement the spectrum of products to be seen at Heimtextil 2022 in Frankfurt. In planning are live streams and online contributions from the programme of lectures. They will cover a variety of topics, such as ‘sleep’, the Heimtextil Trends and Interior.Architecture.Hospitality, the service for (interior) architects and hospitality experts. Lectures will illuminate the sustainability theme and the Future Materials Library.
