HEIMTEXTIL 2018

Bettwaren und Bettwäsche HeimtextilHeimtextil 2018: the Thursday of the trade fair is all about the hotel industry
A focus on housekeepers: guided tours, lectures and events

Bed linen, towels, tablecloths – in hotels, household textiles are a fundamental component of the furnishings and part of the everyday workload. They must meet the highest standards, both in terms of aesthetics and touch as well as in terms of quality and functionality. They must be easy to clean, odour-repelling, robust and ideally  ustainable at the same time. Heimtextil in Frankfurt, the largest trade fair for home and contract textiles, will not only be presenting a unique variety of textiles for use in hotels from 9-12 January 2018, but the event will also be targeting the experts in the hotel business, housekeepers, and offering them an exclusive service.

Lectures and networking
On Thursday 11 January 2018, the lecture programme at Speaker's Corner (hall 8.0, D 45) will be devoted to the hotel industry. Here, housekeepers and managers from the hotel business will be able to inform themselves about current specialist topics. Nick Littlehales, international elite sports sleep coach, who advises the football star Cristiano Ronaldo among others, will give insights into the interplay of sleep and sport in his talk entitled “Redefining Sleep in World Sport” at 1 p.m.  ... more
