Exhibitor applications for inclusion in the 2016 Innovations@Domotex showcase, taking place Jan. 16 through 19 in Hannover, Germany, open in mid-August.

According to show organizers, the showcase gives selected Domotex exhibitors the chance to gain added exposure for their latest and greatest products in a prime setting.

Exhibitors will have from mid-August until Nov. 3 to submit innovations in the following product categories: textile floor coverings/fibers and yarns; resilient floor coverings; wood and laminate flooring; modern handmade carpets, and application and installation technology.

To enter, exhibitors must lodge their submission documents online. If they wish, they can also send in supporting product samples. Participation in Innovations@Domotex is free of charge for Domotex exhibitors. The best products will be selected from among the submissions in mid-November by an expert jury headed by the German industrial designer Stefan Diez.

The Carpet Design Awards will again be held in conjunction with Innovations@Domotex. Accordingly, the best new products from among the submissions in the modern handmade carpets category will be selected by an international jury made up of design and carpet industry professionals headed by the London-based designer Michael Sodeau. 

During Domotex, show officials said special Innovations@Domotex display areas in halls 6, 9 and 17 will provide an attractive, artistically staged overview of the selected product innovations.
