Press release: "Frankfurt is hosting the global textile industry: With around 2400 exhibitors and participants from over 120 countries, Heimtextil 2023 kicks off the trade fair year"

Jan 11, 2023

Heimtextil begins with a panel discussion on sustainability transformation, addressing supply chain rethinking, transparency as a competitive edge, and integrating sustainability into product designs. The opening press conference at Heimtextil 2023 highlighted various approaches and ideas for sustainability transformation.

Highlights of Heimtextil 2023

Heimtextil 2023 offers a wide range of highlights. The event encompasses the entire spectrum of home and contract textiles, catering to various needs from coupon business to high-volume orders. It provides an ideal platform for buyers, including retailers, wholesalers, interior decorators, designers, architects, and hotel decision-makers. They can establish new business contacts, collaborate with suppliers to redefine supply chains, and gain a holistic market overview of textile trends during the four-day fair.

Interior.Architecture.Hospitality

To meet the growing demand in fibers and yarns, Heimtextil 2023 introduces a dedicated section for the first time. This section welcomes new suppliers who expand the global range of upholstery, decorative fabrics, leather, and imitation leather. Furthermore, the event showcases a diverse range of functional contract textiles. These textiles offer special properties such as water repellency, flame retardancy, recyclability, antimicrobial features, and thermoregulation. The "Interior.Architecture.Hospitality" program caters specifically to interior designers, architects, planners, and furnishers interested in these functional textiles.

Attendees seeking knowledge enrichment can benefit from numerous lectures, special presentations, and guided tours. The Interior.Architecture.Hospitality Library offers a curated selection of exhibitor products with unique functional properties. Additionally, the new Interior.Architecture.Hospitality Talks & Tours provide opportunities for expert discussions, exploring selected exhibitor products, and fostering industry exchanges. These sessions not only focus on sustainability but also delve into various design topics.

Sleep & More, Green Tours

One of the highlights at Heimtextil 2023 is the continuation of the Heimtextil Conference Sleep & More. Renowned speakers will address topics such as the importance of quality sleep, sustainable solutions in the retail sector, and the integration of digital gadgets. Building on the success of the Green Tours, the event introduces SLEEP tours that focus on smart bedding innovations. These tours, led by sleep expert Markus Kamps of Schlafkampagne, allow participants to explore the latest advancements in the field.

Green Village, Textiles Matter

Sustainability remains a key theme at Heimtextil. The Green Village, a platform for seal providers and certifiers, expands in 2023 to include exhibitors who are fully committed to sustainability. Moreover, the Heimtextil Trends exhibition presents a compelling showcase under the theme "Textiles Matter." It highlights crucial approaches to circular economy and demonstrates the commitment to sustainable practices. The entire trend area is constructed based on the Heimtextil Material Manifesto, utilizing local, environmentally friendly, or borrowed materials for stand design.

Green Directory

To facilitate engagement and collaboration, Heimtextil provides the Green Directory, which identifies sustainable exhibitors and their certified products both online and at the event. Green Tours, lasting one hour, connect trade visitors with selected exhibitors and promote exchange on sustainable developments. These tours are guided by external experts who provide valuable insights and perspectives.

Tones of Freedom, Frankfurt School of Clothing and Fashion

The event features a special denim show titled "Tones of Freedom." Organized by the Frankfurt School of Clothing and Fashion, the show presents a collection created by students of the School of Design. The collection explores diverse aspects of denim and jeans in a cultural context. Additionally, the special presentation "Embrace new horizons" showcases ten models in collaboration with Heimtextil exhibitors, offering visionary interpretations of "body positivity."
