The presentation of the Carpet Design Awards at a ceremony attended by numerous guests from the international carpet industry is one of the highlights of the annual DOMOTEX show. The award is highly regarded around the world, not least because its featured entries serve as a rich source of inspiration for carpet dealers, owners of carpet and rug galleries, as well as interior designers as they put together their collections for the new season.

All 24 carpets that made it to the final round will be on display until the end of DOMOTEX, in the Innovations@DOMOTEX area of Hall 17. This gives the visiting public the opportunity to pick their personal favorites. The entry that wins the most popular votes will then be honored with a special trophy at the end of the show.
