Strong interest from the Middle East with UAE textile market being estimated at $ 17.5 billion annually

“Interior.Architecture.Hospitality”: expanded programme for architects, interior designers and hotel furnishers

Dubai, UAE, October 25, 2017: The Middle East continues to be a strong source of interest for international textiles suppliers, with increasing market demand stemming from the region for the latest in home and contract textiles.

This was underlined at a media round table organised by Messe Frankfurt Middle East, to familiarise regional media and industry representatives about the advantages of being present at Heimtextil, the leading international trade showcase for home and contract textiles, being held at Frankfurt next year.

Chockfull of design trends, technical innovations and high-quality home collections from international suppliers: with a globally unique product portfolio, Heimtextil will offer its visitors a superb overview of the market when it opens doors in January next year.

With the UAE textile market valued at $ 17.5 billion annually and Dubai and the region rapidly growing in stature as a key textile trading hub, being represented at the leading trading event for the industry, is vital for traders, buyers and suppliers from the region, to keep in touch with the latest trends and developments.

Prominent exhibitors from the Middle East who will be present at Heimtextil 2018 include: Al Guthmi from Saudi Arabia, leaders in furnishing fabrics, curtains and home accessories, KC Fabrics from the UAE also home to make an impact with their fabrics and furnishings, which they design and supply across the globe.

The international trade fair for home and contract textiles expects to welcome around 3000 exhibitors as well as see growth in various product areas. Heimtextil covers the entire portfolio of textile interior design as well as contract furnishing over 20 hall levels. This makes the trade fair a globally unique ordering platform and one at which international key players in the industry gather at the start of the year. At the same time, a comprehensive fringe programme provides information and inspiration on the latest market developments.

A central role in the trade fair's programme is played by the range of contract furnishings and fittings, which Heimtextil sums up under the title “Interior. Architecture. Hospitality”. “This is the next step towards a top innovation and knowledge platform for textile solutions in architecture and hotel furnishing,' says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt. “As the world's leading trade fair for home and contract textiles, we aim to tease out these themes even more clearly from the overall portfolio and prepare them in line with the current requirements of the industry. To this end, we cooperate with international experts and have developed some exciting concepts.”

New: “All about pets” presents textiles for animals
The number of exhibitors that include textiles for animals in their portfolio has grown steadily over a number of years.

Dogspring and Studio am Meer (both Germany) as well as Lex & Max and Van Baal Textiles (both Netherlands) will be present.

The programme highlight for those interested in design is the “Theme Park” in hall 6.0. In this trend and inspiration area, visitors and exhibitors alike can look forward to a wealth of material innovations, colour trends and new designs. The overarching theme is “The Future is urban”. An accompanying programme of talks and guided tours give far-reaching insights into new design projects. For the 2018/19 season, a team of seven international design studios have isolated the most important themes from various general trends. The London-based studio Franklin Till is in charge of the design of the “Theme Park” in hall 6.0.
