07/05/2020 – Heimtextil 2021 — auf Deutsch lesen
Heimtextil from 12 to 15 January 2021 in Frankfurt is proving very popular: more than 95 percent of the space occupied last time has now been booked.
Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt:
“Even though predictions are difficult to make at present, we expect to be able to offer international players in the industry a first-rate, positive environment for their businesses in January 2021. The fact that more than 95 percent of the space as compared to the last Heimtextil is now booked makes us feel very optimistic. We of course hope that the number of companies that end up in difficulty because of the crisis will be very low. However, at this early point in time, the very good number of registrations and the concentration of industry participants at the trade fair gives us incredible momentum. As far as the pandemic is concerned, we are convinced that people will still want to meet in person to exchange their products – and perhaps more so than ever after this crisis year – and that personal contacts are the best prerequisite for good, long-term business. Virtual offers can of course complement global communication. But personal meetings and the experience of touch, especially in the field of textiles, will remain essential.”
