The producers of Domotexhave announced major changes for 2018, including the physical layout of the exhibition, a new lead theme, “UNIQUE YOUNIVERSE,” an even stronger focus on trends and inspiration, and new offerings. Domotex 2018 will be held January 12-15 in Hannover, Germany.

“We are receiving highly positive feedback about the changes at Domotex,” said Susanne Klaproth, project manager. “Many exhibitors now see the new site and hall layout–but also the novel, attractive participation formats–as an opportunity to redefine their position at DOMOTEX and profit from this. Even at this early stage, numerous companies have already registered for Domotex 2018, allowing us to consider them in our new hall layouts from the very start. More than two thirds of the available display space has already been claimed.”

“UNIQUE YOUNIVERSE” stands for the strong trend towards individualization, as products and services are being increasingly personalized to meet individual requirements in virtually every area of life. Customers are also increasingly interested in being personally involved in the process of product development. New, innovative technologies make it possible to support the personalized customer experience.

“Individuality and quality are in greater demand than ever for home furnishings inside your own four walls,” said Jürgen Knauth, general manager of pro Office Büro and Wohnkultur. “An ever-growing number of people want to create their own personal living spaces. We are working together with our customers to develop holistic interior solutions with a personal touch, since an individualized living experience increases a person’s feeling of well-being, promoting contentment and relaxation. This applies equally to office and commercial property settings.”

Visitors can also attend the latest trends and creative product presentations inspired by the Domotex 2018 lead theme in Hall 9, where brand and lifestyle-oriented companies are offering a diverse realm of experience–both by means of company exhibits as well as a special “Framing Trends” display that serves as a first port of call and source of inspiration for visitors.

The “Framing Trends” display is divided into four sections, each one staged by providers from different disciplines. The “Flooring Spaces” section will feature creative product presentations by floor covering providers; and the “Living Spaces” section will feature the interior design sector. At the “NuThinkers” section, students will team up with young designers and startups to showcase their innovative ideas. The “Art & Interaction” section will feature presentations from the world of art and design. These offerings will be supplemented by perennial favorites like talks, guided tours, and meeting areas.
