According to show officials, Domotex 2016, taking place Jan. 16 through 19, is almost fully booked.

“The response from the market has been extremely positive,” said Jochen Köckler, a member of the managing board of Deutsche Messe. “The show is already almost fully booked.”

According to Köckler, the show is expected to feature some 1,400 exhibitors from more than 60 countries.

Domotex will get the year off to a strong start with a shot of new ideas and business leads and provide an exciting, vibrant overview of all the new season’s carpet and flooring trends and innovations. World-leading providers of floor coverings will use the show as a springboard for their new products and collections.

“About 85% of the show’s exhibitors will be from outside Germany,” said Köckler. “They are taking part in Domotex 2016 in order to tap into new export markets.”

Spread across 12 exhibition halls, Domotex will feature a uniquely rich and diverse array of products and materials—an absolute bonanza for trade visitors from the flooring wholesale and retail sectors, architecture, interior design, the skilled flooring trades and the furniture and interior furnishings retail and wholesale sectors. The show’s product lineup encompasses textile and resilient floor coverings for the residential and contract furnishing sectors, machine-woven and hand-made carpets and rugs, parquet and laminate flooring, outdoor flooring solutions, and a comprehensive range of care, cleaning, installation and application technologies.

Köckler added, “One thing we can already say with certainty is that [luxury vinyl tiles] and planks will be one of the big attractions at the show. And no wonder, with all those innovative printed designs and textures to choose from.” 

Another major visitor magnet at Domotex will be the Wood Flooring Summit in Hall 9. The event is expected to feature around 200 exhibitors from the parquet and laminate flooring industry, plus over 180 providers of application and installation technology. Among them will be such big names as Amorim, Boen, Faus, Kährs, Meisterwerke and Unilin.

“The Wood Flooring Summit is one of the stand-out highlights of the show. It features a rich and independently selected range of innovative new creations and interior design solutions from the best of the best in the parquet, wood and laminate flooring sector. An informative and stimulating showcase for visitors from all backgrounds,” said Ulrich Scheffold, general manager, Margaritelli Germany.

Returning to the show will be Innovations@Domotex, which serve as a showcase for the newest ideas in flooring, guided tours and Carpet Design Awards.
