Answers key questions on DOMOTEX 2021
After initially being postponed to May 18-20, DOMOTEX will no longer take place as a hybrid trade show format this year. The current global infection situation in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic makes it impossible to plan and organize a physical presence on site in Hannover at the world's leading trade show for carpets and floor coverings.
Trade shows like DOMOTEX, which are characterized by a very high level of internationality on both sides, amongst exhibitors as well as visitors, have a long planning period. Following the recent surge in global coronavirus cases, accompanied by lockdowns, worldwide travel warnings and restrictions and quarantine requirements, we now have had to make this decision. Unfortunately, for the first time in its 32-year history, we will not be able to organize DOMOTEX in 2021 as a physical trade show on our exhibition grounds in Hannover. Even a hybrid DOMOTEX is not realistic in the current situation, as it would require a certain proportion of physical exhibitors and visitors on-site, combined with travel from all parts of the world.
The next hybrid DOMOTEX will take place from 13 to 16 January 2022.

During our trade shows, we are introducing guidance systems to make it easier for visitors to maintain their distance from each other without slowing down foot traffic in the aisles. In addition, we will make sure there is good ventilation of the entrance gates, halls and conference rooms and frequent cleaning and disinfection. Otherwise, the same rules as everywhere else will apply: Visitors need to maintain a distance of 1.50 meters and, as appropriate, wear mouth and nose protection. In addition, everyone will need to supply their personal details when registering, so that infection paths can be traced if there is a need to. Our catering will also comply with all the relevant legal requirements. And as is to be expected, we will be in close communication with the responsible health authorities and provide medical services at the exhibition center around the clock.
By the way, we are delighted at all the positive feedback we have been getting from visitors and exhibitors – feedback that underscores the important role trade shows play in general, and how much our clientele relies on our trade shows as a place for gathering information, doing business and engaging in networking. This gives us added motivation as we work all-out to prepare our shows, analog, hybrid or digital, which we are sure will give the industry perfect opportunities for kicking their business back into high gear.

The DOMOTEX Digital Days were meant to offer a unique and high-quality platform for business and networking to the flooring industry. At the beginning of the conceptual phase, a digital DOMOTEX 2021 was received with support and commitment from the exhibitors. A few weeks before the event date, however, there is both a certain "digital fatigue" and an increasing desire for face-to-face meetings in the industry.
The demand for digital formats in the industry has been met by now. Furthermore, despite the pandemic - or in parts because of it - exhibitors are reporting a healthy order book.
With the special edition DOMOTEX DIGITAL DAYS 2021, our aim was to play an active role in shaping the current crisis. Currently we have to conclude that despite all the sound digital ideas and innovative approaches, the on-site experience of DOMOTEX cannot be replaced. Taken that into consideration, we have decided to cancel DOMOTEX DIGITAL DAYS 2021 in May and are looking forward together with you to the next DOMOTEX, that will take place as a hybrid event from 13 to 16 January 2022 as a hybrid event at the exhibition grounds in Hannover.
