What benefits brings Heimtextil to the city?
With the ‘Heimtextil goes City’ B2B campaign, Heimtextil takes the latest products and innovations from the fair to the city. To this end, we cooperate with the Frankfurt Interior Decoration Association and around 25 interior-decoration companies, bed retailers, galleries and museums in the city. Naturally, Frankfurt also profits from the numerous international visitors and exhibitors who flock to the many hotels, restaurants and bars – not only in the city but also in the region – and use taxis and local public-transport services during the four days of the fair.
What is the visitor profile?
Our visitors include wholesalers, interior decoration specialists, bed retailers and premium furnishing dealers, as well as architects, interior architects, designers, hoteliers and contract and interior furnishing contractors. Our visitors are also characterised by a high degree of purchasing authority: a large proportion of them is involved in their companies’ buying decisions. Moreover, internationality is a special feature of our visitors who come from around 130 different countries.
Some participation results from the last edition
This year, around 68,000 trade visitors from 128 countries took advantage of the leading international trade fair in Frankfurt to restock and gain inspiration for the coming season. 2,759 exhibitors from 68 countries presented their latest products and trends at Heimtextil 2015. Increased visitor numbers were noted from Europe, especially Great Britain, Italy and Spain. But that’s not all: there were also more visitors from the Arabian Peninsula, in particular from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, as well as from overseas countries, such as Japan and the USA. As expected, there were fewer visitors in Frankfurt from the Ukraine and Russia.
