DOMOTEX 2016 opens within a short time – and it's set to start on a high note with an exceptionally strong and international exhibitor lineup. Staged in Hannover, Germany, from 16 to 19 January, the world’s leading trade show for carpets and floor coverings will feature 1,441 exhibitors from 59 nations – the biggest exhibitor lineup the show has seen in years. An impressive 85 percent of these exhibitors will come from outside Germany. "More providers, more innovations, more inspiration – the scene is set for a successful DOMOTEX 2016," commented Dr. Jochen Köckler, a member of the Managing Board at Deutsche Messe, the official organizer of DOMOTEX. "As the number one meeting place for the entire carpet and floor coverings industry, DOMOTEX will get the year off to a strong start with a shot of new ideas and business leads, and provide an excellent overview of all the new season's trends and innovations."

This year's DOMOTEX features 12 halls with the world’s biggest display of carpets and floor coverings. Trade visitors from the flooring wholesale and retail sectors, architecture, interior design, the skilled flooring trades and the furniture and interior furnishing retail and wholesale sectors can expect a rich and diverse array of innovative materials, creative solutions and stunning designs spanning the entire floor covering spectrum, from carpets, parquet and laminate flooring right through to luxury vinyl tiles.

"DOMOTEX is where trends are set and radiate across the marketplace. If you want a preview of the products and materials that will be on floors and in shops in the coming season, attending DOMOTEX is a must."
