DOMOTEX 2018, 12 - 15 January
Keynote Theme


In 2018 DOMOTEX will for the first time focus on a keynote theme common to every area of the event and reflected in the pre-event communication and at the venue itself. The strategy is designed to make flooring an even greater attraction.

Keynote theme leading to new opportunities


The keynote theme UNIQUE YOUNIVERSE opens up new and exciting possibilities. Exhibitors are invited to take this up in their trade fair presentation and to use it to highlight their individual products. Focus on the keynote theme and benefit from a stronger impact.

UNIQUE YOUNIVERSE represents a strong trend towards the individualization of products and services. In other words, customization in response to individual needs and wishes. In future, customers will be more closely involved in the development of new products. New innovative technology makes it easier to offer a personal customer experience. The implications of this core trend for the flooring sector will be explored at DOMOTEX 2018 ‒ with examples, presentations and discussions.


Located in the special area in Hall 9, Framing Trends consists of four modules - all dedicated in 2018 to the keynote theme UNIQUE YOUNIVERSE. Numerous players from the floor coverings industry and related product sectors will exhibit their ideas and solutions focussing on the trend towards individualization - innovative, inspiring and emotional.

Framing Trends: Creative product showcases on the individualization megatrend

Only a limited number of slots are available in the "Flooring Spaces" zone, so an expert panel has been appointed to decide which of the submitting companies will be chosen to have their individualization-related ideas and designs featured. Companies and manufacturers who would like to use the "Spaces" to stage individualization-related products have until 20 July to submit proposals. The panel will then convene at the end of July to evaluate all the submission and select the most creative from among them. more
