Messe Frankfurt has decided to run the Heimtextil expo concurrently with Techtextil and Texprocess. Originally scheduled from January. 04-07, the show will now be held from May 04-07. It will take place alongside Techtextil and Texprocess in Frankfurt.
Joining Heimtextil with the two other textile fairs will present visitors with the entire textile value chain at the same time on the Frankfurt exhibition grounds.
For the first time, Messe Frankfurt will make its Nextrade digital marketplace available to customers of Heimtextil, Christmasworld and Creativeworld to extend their physical trade fair participation and allow orders to be placed all year round.
The digital B2B marketplace for the Home & Living sector matches supply and demand. Ambiente, Tendence and Nordstil have been using the portal and its ordering and data management services since 2019.
In another shift, the Ambiente, Christmasworld and Paperworld shows will be making a once-only appearance as a joint event in Frankfurt am Main from April 17-20 as the International Consumer Goods Show – Special Edition. The physical event will be actively supplemented with digital offerings as part of Consumer Goods Digital Days, which will also be home to the purely digital Creativeworld, an event that is taking a one year hiatus as a physical meeting place in 2021.
