In the next few days DOMOTEX HANNOVER, the World of Flooring, will open its doors once again. From 16 to 19 January 2010 the international carpet and floor coverings sector will showcase its products and services at the Hannover Exhibition Grounds with an expected 1,400 exhibitors.This international carpet and floor coverings show makes its mark with a high level of international participation, despite the current economic crisis, with exhibitors from 60 countries participating.
"Around 1,400 companies from 60 countries will be exhibiting at DOMOTEX HANNOVER 2010. We are thus on a par with the previous year. This is indicative of the strong commitment for the flooring industry to 'their' trade show," explains Stephan Ph. Kühne, a member of the Management Board of Deutschen Messe AG. "Trade shows mirror markets. We, too, sense the general mood of uncertainty in view of the current economic situation. Yet in such difficult times DOMOTEX - in its role as an international flagship show - plays a key role. It provides valuable guidance for the flooring industry and generates future growth. New display categories, trend scenarios and networking opportunities will appeal to our exhibitors and visitors from the distributive trades, the skilled trades and architecture, and lay the foundations for business contacts."
No other trade show offers similar opportunities to obtain a complete overview of what's available on the world market. The display categories at DOMOTEX HANNOVER are as follows: Carpets/rugs (hand-made and machine-made); Textile and resilient floor coverings; Wood and parquet flooring; Laminated floor coverings; and Laying skills, cleaning and application technologies. DOMOTEX HANNOVER ranks as the leading business forum for flooring suppliers from all the world's continents. Eighty percent of the exhibitors and 60 percent of the visitors come from outside Germany.
Over four action-packed days DOMOTEX 2010 will showcase markets and products and make the latest trends accessible to exhibitors and visitors.
