Wholesale and retail trade

A visit to DOMOTEX, the world's leading trade fair for carpets and floor coverings, is an absolute must for professionals in the flooring wholesale and retail trade. It is the place to go to do business with suppliers, make new contacts and keep up with the latest innovations. As part of our ongoing commitment to leading the way on innovation, trends and lifestyle in the floor coverings industry, we have made a number of improvements to DOMOTEX that will give you major added value from 2018 on.

UNIQUE YOUNIVERSE – the keynote theme for 2018

First of all, the show now has a new layout that further optimizes and synergizes the physical clustering of related product types. For you, that means a clearer structure that makes it quicker and easier for you to find what you’re looking for. NB: Before you head to the show, take a look at the new map of the exhibition grounds and do an exhibitor and product search so you know exactly where your key exhibitors are now located. We have also added a flexible shuttle service to our offering to make it even quicker and easier for you to get to the halls you want to visit. The shuttles can be hailed and stopped anywhere on the exhibition grounds, giving you the ultimate in door-to-door service.

Another important change is that, from 2018 on, DOMOTEX will be staged under an annually changing keynote theme which encapsulates the latest trends and highlights the creative power of the flooring industry.

UNIQUE YOUNIVERSE – the keynote theme for 2018

A megatrend that is sweeping multiple industries at the moment is individualization – the quintessentially human quest for individuality amid an increasingly globalized and standardized world. People want products and services that are tailored to their needs and lifestyles and which reflect their own unique personalities. UNIQUE YOUNIVERSE captures this trend and further positions DOMOTEX as a diver of innovation.
