During DOMOTEX, special Innovations@DOMOTEX display areas in halls 6, 9 and 17 will provide an attractive, artistically staged overview of the selected product innovations. Find new products and trends in the following categories:

  • Hall 6: Textile and resilient floor coverings
  • Hall 9: Laminate and parquet flooring, application and laying techniques
  • Hall 17: Modern hand-made carpets and rugs

The Innovations@DOMOTEX showcase will be supported by a visitor guidebook that visitors can use to research the featured products and plan their visit. And for a more personal touch, leading figures from the architecture and design scene will run guided tours and give theme-specific Dialogues during which they will provide their own unique perspective on DOMOTEX's products, manufacturers and display stands.

From a human perspective, floors – or, rather, the materials that cover them – are among the most important aspects of any building. They provide a direct physical interface between people and the buildings they live and work in. This is reflected at Innovations@DOMOTEX, a unique showcase where architects and planners can see, touch and experience exciting new products, gather valuable practical information, and engage in dialogue with manufacturers.
