Industry Relevance 

Heimtextil is an annual trade fair based in Frankfurt, Germany. The very first edition took place in 1971 and since then has been a trendsetting event with a large global appeal. It’s here that the most advanced materials, technologies and solutions in the commercial textile industry are shown to a wide audience. The event runs parallel to Texprocess, the trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials. 

Visitors have a complete overview of all relevant groups – furniture fabrics, leather, bed linen, beds, bedding, blankets, carpeting, carpets, curtains, embroidery, sun protection systems, wall coverings and table decoration. We also have to mention that the way Heimtextil is positioned in the year turns it into the season’s opener on a lot of trends internationally. This makes the debut of new collections all the more successful. 

It’s also important to mention how Heimtextil approaches sustainability. The trade event is a proud member of the Messe Frankfurt Texpertise Network whose mission is to transform the textile and fashion industry towards a greener future. The network works towards full compliance with the Sustainable Development Goals set for 2030. Sustainability remains the focal point of a lot of the features and supporting events during Heimtextil. 

Who Are You Going to Meet?

Heimtextil exists at the crossroads of interior design, design and architecture, which makes it highly appealing for manufacturers, distributors, buyers, retailers, wholesalers, designers, furniture and bedding stores, interior decorators, interior architects, architects, hotel outfitters and decision makers to attend. This gives exhibitors a variety of clients to diversify their income streams and grow market shares. If we break down visitors by their roles in their organisations, you see self-employed entrepreneurs, managing directors, executive boards, department and group heads, in-training staff and salaried staff. 

We have already mentioned that visitors come from 117 countries. However, a significant portion is of German origin, while the other leading numbers come from countries in the European Union and other European countries. Overall, exhibitors can hope to meet with relevant buyers from Italy, France, Turkey, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Poland, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Portugal, Pakistan and the USA. 

Additional Value of Attendance 

A valuable lesson learned during the pandemic is the importance of embracing digital technologies and this has resulted in the transition of the trade fair into a hybrid format. The Digital Extension platform presents exhibitors with additional tools to promote their brand and achieve visibility in the off-months between editions. 

The big informative event during Heimtextil is the Heimtextil Conference, which unites around a specific topic and invites top speakers and business leaders to share their expertise and shape the trends. In 2022, the theme for the conference was Sleep & More – the green future of the hotel bed. Good sleep is a key metric of satisfaction in the hospitality sector and the conference looked into topics such as how mattresses can be adopted into the circular economy, ideas for sustainable hotel rooms of the future, and advanced mattress designs. 

You also get to meet the next generation of professionals. The New & Next University Competition showcases new talent from national and international universities with a focus on textile design. Winners have the honour of representing their university in person and display selected student work.
