Hannover Fairs USA is gearing up its USA Pavilion for Domotex 2003, scheduled for Jan. 11-14 in Hannover, Germany. Deutsche Messe AG, the organizers of Domotex, expects more than 42,000 professional attendees at the event.

Domotex will provide a look at the state of the flooring industry, as well as technological advances and design ideas. Top U.S. manufacturers will be present, with more than 1,100 exhibitors expected to participate.

Two programs will return after a successful debut in 2001. "Domotex Workshop/Forum Floor Care" is geared toward application and installation technologies. "carpet.Performance" highlights the practical aspects of using Oriental carpets in interior design.
