Hannover. After a successful comeback in 2023, preparations for the 34th edition of the world's leading trade fair for carpets and floor coverings are once again in full swing. As a source of inspiration and a global marketplace, DOMOTEX is constantly evolving – with a presentation area for wholesalers, mood spaces for residential and contracting, new formats for contractors and architects, and for the first time an exciting country focus. "Together with partners, we are going to present a country focus in the future. The focus is on trends and designs, colors and innovations from the particular country. However, naturally, manufacturers and designers from the respective country will also be highlighted. In addition, we are happy to focus on other distinctive aspects, such as marketing concepts from the country. In 2024, Italy will be the focus of the event, marking its kick-off," explains Sonia Wedell-Castellano, Global Director DOMOTEX, Deutsche Messe AG. Among other things, "Insight Italy" will be staged with a new special display. It offers a global stage on which companies and partners can effectively present innovations, trends and designs and deepen business relationships.

"Our goal is not only to unite the worlds of carpets and floor coverings in one place. Rather, we want to give the industry a place where it feels comfortable, which they can make their own platform and where individuals can meet who have one thing in common: a passion for flooring and carpets. A strong and united home for floor coverings of all kinds!" announces Wedell-Castellano.
