Heimtextil findet im Mai 2021 gemeinsam mit Techtextil und Texprocess statt

Heimtextil auf 4. bis 7. Mai 2021 verlegt
Die Heimtextil 2021 wird vom Januar auf den 4. bis 7. Mai 2021 verlegt und findet dann parallel zur Techtextil und Texprocess 2021 in Frankfurt statt. „Aus großen Teilen der internationalen Wohn- und Objekttextilienbranche gibt es den Wunsch, die Heimtextil 2021 stattfinden zu lassen. Viele Unternehmen erhoffen sich vom Messeauftritt einen Anschub ihrer Geschäfte nach dem Re-Start. Dieser Notwendigkeit fühlen wir uns mehr denn je verpflichtet“, erklärt Detlef Braun, Geschäftsführer der Messe Frankfurt. „Allerdings stellen die aktuellen Reisebeschränkungen und die erneut ansteigenden Infektionszahlen derzeit eine große Hürde für unsere sehr international ausgerichtete Veranstaltung dar. Wir stehen im intensiven Austausch mit unseren Ausstellern wie auch den zuständigen Behörden und setzen uns mit ganzer Kraft für eine sichere und erfolgversprechende Ausrichtung der Heimtextil 2021 ein.“

Für die Heimtextil bietet der neue Termin die Chance, gemeinsam mit den beiden Textilfachmessen die gesamte textile Wertschöpfungskette zeitgleich auf dem Frankfurter Messegelände abzubilden.
„Die genannten Modalitäten bzw. externen Rahmenbedingungen gelten für sämtliche Branchen gleichermaßen, so auch für den Themenbereich Konsumgüter im Allgemeinen", ergänzt Braun.

„International Consumer Goods Show – Special Edition“ bündelt das Konsumgüterangebot der Messe Frankfurt 2021
Einmalig finden vom 17. bis 20. April 2021 die Messen Ambiente, Christmasworld und Paperworld als gemeinsame Veranstaltung unter dem Namen „International Consumer Goods Show – Special Edition“ in Frankfurt am Main statt. Die Präsenzveranstaltung wird durch gezielte digitale Angebote der Consumer Goods Digital Days ergänzt. Hier werden auch die rein digitalen Angebote der Creativeworld zu finden sein, die 2021 als physischer Treffpunkt einmalig aussetzt. Aufgrund der Zusammenlegung, des neuen Termins und des hybriden Charakters der Veranstaltung ergeben sich unter den aktuell vorherrschenden Pandemie-Bedingungen neue geschäftsfördernde Synergie-Effekte für die gesamte Branche.

Neue Reichweite: Nutzung des digitalen Marktplatz Nextrade wird ausgeweitet
Als erster digitaler B2B-Marktplatz für Home & Living führt die Plattform Nextrade Angebot und Nachfrage der gesamten Branche zusammen – und schafft damit einen großen Mehrwert für beide Seiten. Seit 2019 nutzen Kunden der Ambiente, Tendence und Nordstil das Portal mit Services rund um Order- und Datenmanagement. 2021 steht das Portal erstmalig auch Kunden der Heimtextil, Christmasworld, Creativeworld zur Verfügung, um die physische Messeteilnahme zu verlängern und ganzjährige Orders zu ermöglichen:

Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles 2020 concluded successfully: online and offline platforms met sourcing demands

The 26th edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles concluded on 26 August, following a successful three-day run at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai). It was Messe Frankfurt’s first event to take place in Shanghai in 2020 following disruptions from the pandemic. Amid the challenges presented by the pandemic, this year’s fair provided a vital opportunity for the international home and contract textile industries to source and reconnect through virtual and in-person meetings. Offering a comprehensive range of home and commercial textile products, the fair welcomed over 600 exhibitors and attracted more than 25,000 trade buyers.

The 26th edition of Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles concluded on 26 August, following a successful three-day run at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai). It was Messe Frankfurt’s first event to take place in Shanghai in 2020 following disruptions from the pandemic. Amid the challenges presented by the pandemic, this year’s fair provided a vital opportunity for the international home and contract textile industries to source and reconnect through virtual and in-person meetings. Offering a comprehensive range of home and commercial textile products, the fair welcomed over 600 exhibitors and attracted more than 25,000 trade buyers.

Speaking as the fair concluded, Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd commented: “Intertextile has always been dedicated to providing an ideal platform for the international home textile industry and we are delighted to continue to do so during these unprecedented, challenging times. In view of the current global travel restrictions, this year’s fair offered a series of digital tools in addition to the traditional exhibition, allowing the fair to reach as wide an audience as possible. We are glad that this new format was highly recognised by the participating exhibitors and buyers alike.”

“Whilst economic activity in China is progressively recovering and domestic consumption continues to grow, the country’s exports are taking longer to rebound,” Ms Wen added. “One of the main objectives of this year’s fair was to connect domestic and international suppliers and buyers who are eager to make personal contacts and get back to business. As evidenced by feedback from numerous exhibitors and visitors, the fair has been able to help and support the industry’s recovery, so we are delighted with the results.”

Online business matching platform connected worldwide companies
 
In view of the current international travel restrictions, this year’s fair launched a brand new online business matching platform, which connected around 200 buyers from over 50 countries and regions to 60 exhibitors. The platform introduced multiple new functions, such as live-stream product presentations and a real-time chat platform to better facilitate business exchanges between suppliers and buyers from around the world. One exhibitor participating in the platform was Suzhou Roufang Textile Technology Co Ltd. “Yesterday we had a live-stream product presentation, which attracted around 200 buyers. The online platform is useful for us as we could showcase our new products and design concepts to overseas buyers, and let them know that we are still here to serve them,” the company’s Business Manager Ms Yu Qian Ru explained.

Mr Azam Osman, Manager of the Factory Depot (Pty) Ltd from South Africa expressed his satisfaction about the online platform: “I am glad that the fair provided the online business matching service where I have seen a lot of quality furniture and decorative fabric exhibitors. I’m interested in connecting with them.” Another buyer, Ms Elena Freyuk from Ziptown Trading Inc. said: "I am pleased that the fair offered both live-stream and video recording product presentations as I was unable to watch the live presentation due to time difference. The services were very thoughtful!”

A source of inspiration for the industry
 
To ensure fairgoers can discover the latest design and industry trends and insights, this year’s fringe programme presented a series of high quality events, covering the industry’s hottest topics. Some of the highlights included the 2021 Intertextile Trend Forum, which was led by Shen Lei, the Chinese representative of the Intertextile International Lifestyle Trend Committee. The forum brought together five prominent Chinese designers including Ben Chen, Ben Wu, Meng Ye, Paul Pang and Xie Ke, who presented an in-depth interpretation of the theme of 2021 Intertextile Trends, “BOUND”. Other events included Ride the Storm – Home Textile Digital Printing Forum, Tmall Seminar on industry digitalisation, Furniture & Home Textile Direct Negotiation Event and more.

No Trevira CS joint booth at Heimtextil 2021

  • Successful concept to be continued in 2022

For three years now, the Trevira CS joint fair booth, where Trevira, its customers and partners present their new ideas within the framework of an innovative creative concept, has been an established and popular feature of Heimtextil. In 2021, the international trade fair for home and contract textiles is planned to take place from 12-15 January in Frankfurt/Main. However, as a result of the numerous uncertainties brought about by the coronavirus crisis, Trevira has decided that it will not take part next year.

  • Successful concept to be continued in 2022

For three years now, the Trevira CS joint fair booth, where Trevira, its customers and partners present their new ideas within the framework of an innovative creative concept, has been an established and popular feature of Heimtextil. In 2021, the international trade fair for home and contract textiles is planned to take place from 12-15 January in Frankfurt/Main. However, as a result of the numerous uncertainties brought about by the coronavirus crisis, Trevira has decided that it will not take part next year.

“Messe Frankfurt has shown us its comprehensive hygiene concept and plans and there is no question that their plans fully meet health and safety requirements,” explained Trevira CEO Klaus Holz. “But at Trevira, we are also very much aware of our responsibilities. Our joint booth concept is not only on an extensive scale, but it is also built around the idea of communication. This makes it even more important that we consider the potential risks involved and how they could impact our customers, co-exhibitors, visitors and staff.” Given the uncertainty as to how the situation might develop in the future, Trevira has decided it has no option but to withdraw from next year’s fair and postpone its participation in Heimtextil until 2022. This decision has been made in agreement with parent company Indorama Ventures PCL (Thailand), which has put stringent measures in place to keep its staff and customers safe. As a result, the concern and its subsidiaries are not currently participating in any trade fairs.

At the 2020 Heimtextil, Trevira exhibited together with around 30 of its major Trevira CS customers with a joint booth whose total floor area measured over 2,000 msq. The number of partners exhibiting alongside Trevira has increased steadily over the past three years, and the Trevira display, along with many of the newest flame retardant Trevira CS collections from its customers, has always been hugely popular at the fair, especially in Hall 4.2, where it has continually attracted a very high number of visitors. As a joint booth, it has benefited especially from the vibrant and positive discussions among visitors and exhibitors, together with the various events that accompany the display. Usually, these included a press conference and a party held at the new stand. Trevira’s Heimtextil presence in the past three years has strengthened and expanded the position of Trevira CS as the leading brand for flame retardant home textiles.

CEO Klaus Holz said, “As a regular exhibitor at Heimtextil for many years, we found this decision extremely difficult. We greatly regret that we will not be able to bring our joint booth to Heimtextil next year. However, we plan to return in 2022 with a fair booth offering visitors and partners the high quality they have come to expect of us, with brand new ideas and measures in place to ensure its success”.

Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles 2020 opens next Monday: new digital tools complement in-person meetings

Asia’s leading trade platform for the home and contract textile industry, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles, is ready to welcome over 600 exhibitors to China’s commercial hub from 24 – 26 August. As China’s economy continues its recovery, the upcoming fair will serve as a key platform for the industry to reconnect and prepare for the seasons ahead. Taking consideration of current international travel restrictions, Intertextile has launched a brand new online business matching platform, enabling participation for those who cannot travel to Shanghai.

Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd commented: “2020 has been a difficult and unpredictable year for every business and industry across the world, so we are pleased to be providing a platform for the home textile industry to connect and recover from the coronavirus pandemic. Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles is the first physical trade event for the sector held by Messe Frankfurt since January, so we hope that the fair assists the sector to join forces and overcome this challenging year together.”

Ms Wen continued: “Our first priority is to create a clean and hygienic space for all participants to source and network. To achieve this goal, the fair will implement extra health care and hygiene precautions onsite. On the other hand, we are aware that a number of travel restrictions are still in place across the world. With this in mind, Intertextile will offer a series of online services for those who are unable to travel to Shanghai, allowing the fair to reach as wide an audience as possible.”

2020 fair highlights

To provide buyers with greater efficiency, the fair, which covers four halls, will be divided clearly by product categories: Household Hall (hall 3), International Brands / Upholstery Hall (hall 4.1), Brand Fabrics Hall (hall 5.1) and Sofa Fabrics Hall (hall 6.1).

In addition, the Contract Business 360° concept will return this year, with over 40 premier upholstery exhibitors presenting their latest textile products and furnishing solutions for contract use. Exhibitors include Guangzhou Yuanzhicheng Home Textile, Haining Julai Textile, JAB, Morgan Shanghai, Symphony Mills, Suzhou Roufang, Ter Molst International, Zhejiang Hexin and Zhejiang Maya Fabric. Furthermore, top brands such as Agmamito from Poland and Wollsdorf Leather from Austria will be exhibiting for the first time at Intertextile.

Online business matching platform offers new sourcing landscape

Although face-to-face interaction is irreplaceable, a virtual complement has become more important as a result of the worldwide pandemic. To support the industry during these unprecedented times, Intertextile has launched a brand new online business matching platform. With this free service, participants are able to source and network at their fingertips. The virtual platform will offer many new features including:

  • Easy sourcing: exhibitors are categorised by product groups including Sofa / Decorative Fabrics, Curtains and Accessories, Bedding and Finished products, Shading and Accessories, and Editors
  • Live-streamed product presentations of exhibitors
  • Smart recommendations: pre-selected exhibitor lists will be provided to buyers based on their personal preferences and interests
  • Convenience: participants are able to use the service through computers or portable devices without the need to download any software

High quality fringe programme covers comprehensive topics
 
The fair’s event programme will once again provide the industry with the latest trends and insights in four topics: Design Inspiration, Business O2O, Textile & Technology and Industry Empowerment. One of the highlights will be the 2021 Intertextile Trend Forum, led by Shen Lei, the Chinese representative of the Intertextile International Lifestyle Trend Committee. The forum will bring together five prominent Chinese designers including Ben Chen, Ben Wu, Meng Ye, Paul Pang and Xie Ke, who will delve into the theme of 2021 Intertextile Trends–“BOUND”, as well as the Chinese market conditions. The event will be held on day 1 of the fair, from 14:00 – 17:00 in hall 5.1 booth C18, and streamed live online.

Another not-to-be-missed event is the Ride the Storm – Home Textile Digital Printing Forum, which will include an array of educating seminars that cover the latest digital textile printing trends and technologies. The forum will be held on day 2 of the fair, from 13:20 – 17:20 in hall 3, booth M12.

Furthermore, joining forces with Tmall Global, the largest cross border B2C online retail platform in China, the fair will host a series of seminars delivering the solutions and strategies for industry digitalisation during the afternoon of day 1. In addition, the well-received Furniture & Home Textile Direct Negotiation Event will return to provide an excellent opportunity for furniture companies and fabric brands to collaborate.

Additional health care and hygiene precautions will be in place

As trade fair co-organisers, Messe Frankfurt’s number one priority always remains the health and safety of fairgoers. To maintain a clean and hygienic environment for visitors and exhibitors to meet in, extra measures will be in practice at the fair. These include: real-name registration, onsite temperature checks, frequent sterilisation of public areas and distancing measures for forum / seminar audiences, amongst others.

Neonyt startet für den Sommer Zusammenarbeit mit B2B-Online-Marketplaces

Gestiegene Ausstellerzahlen, doppelt so viele Fachbesucher, das Thema Nachhaltigkeit stand so hoch im Kurs wie noch nie – so lautete das Resümee der Neonyt im Januar. All das sollte zur Sommerausgabe Ende Juni 2020 nochmals getoppt werden. Aber Corona macht der Messe Frankfurt als Veranstalter einen Strich durch die Rechnung. Nun ist auch klar, dass es keine virtuelle Ausgabe der Neonyt im Sommer geben wird.

Gemeinsam die Mode verändern. Durch Kollaboration, Kommunikation und Unternehmertum – Das ist die Vision der Neonyt. Angesichts der weiterhin angespannten Lage rund um Covid-19 hat sich das Management der Messe Frankfurt dazu entschieden, die Neonyt als physisches Event in diesem Jahr nicht mehr auszurichten. Eine eigene digitale Plattform zu entwickeln, um die Neonyt und ihre Aussteller in virtuellen Showrooms abzubilden, sehen die Verantwortlichen als nicht zielführend an. Stattdessen setzt die Neonyt auf eine Zusammenarbeit mit zwei bestehenden B2B-Online-Marketplaces.

Ziel ist es, die Neonyt zur nächsten Winterausgabe wieder wie gewohnt für die Communities auszurichten. In der Zwischenzeit bietet die Neonyt durch die Partnerschaft mit den beiden B2B-Marketplaces The Brand Show Circular und Joor Ausstellern die Möglichkeit, sich in einem internationalen Order-Umfeld zu positionieren und den Blick nach vorne auf eine Zeit nach der Corona-Pandemie zu richten.

The Brand Show Circular ist eine B2B-Marketing- und Orderplattform, auf der es neben den digitalen Showrooms und dem Ordergeschäft für Brands auch die Möglichkeit gibt, Video-Content zu veröffentlichen. Nachhaltige Mode steht bei Circular im Fokus und viele Neonyt-Aussteller sind dort bereits mit digitalen Showrooms vertreten.

Die Kooperation mit Joor, der weltweit führenden B2B-Plattform für Marken und Einzelhändler, und der Premium Group, dem Veranstalter der Premium, Seek und der Fashiontech Konferenz, bietet Neonyt-Ausstellern ebenfalls umfangreiche digitale Services. Diese werden interessierten Ausstellern in Kürze präsentiert.

Fashionsustain
Für die Fashionsustain-Konferenz wurde eine digitale Lösung auf Basis der bestehenden Kanäle gefunden: In der Woche vom 13. – 17. Juli 2020 werden sich Speaker aus der nachhaltigen und digitalen Modebranche in Live-Talks und verschiedenen Audio- und Videoformaten auf den Social-Media-Kanälen der Neonyt und der Fashionsustain mit Themen rund um Innovation, Nachhaltigkeit und Technologie auseinandersetzen. Das vollständige Programm wird in den kommenden Wochen bekannt gegeben.

Heimtextil künftig mit drei Säulen: „Show“, „Trend“ und „Conference“

Mitten in der gegenwärtigen Coronakrise erfährt die Heimtextil für ihre nächste Ausgabe vom 12. bis 15. Januar 2021 in Frankfurt am Main sehr großen Zuspruch: Mehr als 95 Prozent der 2020 belegten Fläche sind bislang gebucht.

Eine Neuerung erwartet Aussteller und Besucher der Heimtextil in Sachen Programmstruktur: Um die zahlreichen Events, die auf diverse Zielgruppen ausgerichtet sind, klarer und übersichtlicher zu ordnen und eine gute Orientierung zu bieten, stellen die Messeverantwortlichen die Heimtextil künftig auf drei Säulen auf: „Show“, „Trend“ und „Conference“ werden ab sofort die drei wesentlichen Elemente der Messe sein, die den Heimtextil-Teilnehmern umfassende Informationen und Inspirationen bieten.

„Show“ steht dabei für die Präsentationen der internationalen Aussteller an deren Ständen in den Hallen 3 bis 12 – also für die Messe im eigentlichen Sinne.

Zum Beispiel führen renommierte Architekten und Einrichtungsexperten die Besucher gezielt zu innovativen und trendsetzenden Unternehmen machen spannende Produktlösungen erlebbar.

Our teams are making every effort to find suitable alternatives, but we will only make the decision to go ahead with these fairs when it is deemed safe to do so.”

Monforts: Half a century of excellence

The origins of both Industry 4.0 and an awareness of the need for more sustainable manufacturing methods can arguably be traced back to the year 1971.

It was in 1971 that the first microprocessor was introduced by Intel, and also that the first and perhaps now most well-known environmental campaigner, Greenpeace, was founded.

As such, a direct line can be charted from that year to today’s automated textile manufacturing machinery concepts, as well as the drive to develop more increasingly resource-efficient processes.

All of the recent innovations which have been introduced to the market by A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG, for example, are being powered by the possibilities of Industry 4.0 and developed in response to the market demand for more sustainable production.

All of the recent innovations which have been introduced to the market by A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG, for example, are being powered by the possibilities of Industry 4.0 and developed in response to the market demand for more sustainable production.

They include the new ‘digital twinning’ capability introduced in 2019 for all Monforts machines, with advanced sensor technologies which make it possible to access comprehensive technical machine data from any location using the company’s Smart Support and Smart Check apps. In addition, the digital twin system provides information on individual wear parts, such as, for example, converters or gears.

These latest developments have been very favourably received by Monforts customers, especially in Europe.

50th anniversary
The very first Heimtextil – the leading trade fair for the home textiles market – was also held in Frankfurt in January 1971 and Monforts customers Bierbaum Group and Konrad Hornschuch AG are amongst the German companies who were there from the very start and have attended every annual show since.

Bierbaum Group, based in Borken, is the company behind the well-known Irisette bedding brand and is celebrating its own 125th anniversary in 2020. It has also introduced products bearing the German government’s new Grüner Knopf textile seal of approval for sustainable production.

As a specialist in synthetic leathers for home surfaces, as well as vehicle interiors, Konrad Hornschuch AG, of Weissbach, has been a member of the €44 billion automotive giant Continental AG since 2016.

Representatives from both companies received memorial trophies at a special presentation held on January 7th during the 50th anniversary Heimtextil show.

The home textiles market remains very strong in Germany, with sales amounting to some €9.6 billion in 2019, according to analyst IFH Cologne.

Global growth
The first Heimtextil in 1971 was a significant success, attracting 679 exhibitors from 26 countries.

This year’s show, however, attracted a total of 2,952 exhibitors from 66 countries, reflecting not only the growth of the home textiles industry, but also the globalisation which has taken place over the last half century.

Monforts now has customers for its advanced finishing technologies around the world, with home textile customers from India and Pakistan being particularly well represented at Heimtextil 2020.

Among stand outs from Indian companies at this year’s show was the 2020 collection of Welspun India’s famous Christy England brand, inspired by botanical studies of the gardens of British stately homes. Welspun towels meanwhile benefit from the company’s HygroCotton hollow core yarn technology, produced by a proprietary spinning method which ensures they become softer, fluffier and more absorbent after every wash.

An equally ground-breaking new technology is being introduced by Trident Group, which is one of India’s largest vertically-integrated home textiles manufacturers and two years ago installed five complete Monforts finishing ranges for its new linen department.

Trident’s patented Air Rich yarns feature pores throughout their cross sections for high breathability and absorbency, as well as rapid drying.

Monforts home textile customers from Pakistan stressed the resource efficiency of their processes and products as a result of investments in advanced technology, and during the show the ‘Sustainable Pakistan’ initiative was announced.

Supported by GIZ, the German Society for International Cooperation, the initiative aims to reshape global perceptions of Pakistan’s manufacturers and their innovations. So far, twenty producers have been carefully chosen to be presented on this global platform and will help rebrand Pakistan’s textile industry at the Heimtextil exhibitions going forward.

Heimtextil’s organiser Messe Frankfurt also announced its own new alliance with the United Nations Office for Partnerships, in order to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Constancy
Many things have changed since 1971 and home interiors are certainly no longer predominantly orange and brown – and perhaps unlikely to ever become so again.

It’s clear, however, that there has been a constancy in the push to consistently improve textile technologies, processes and products that may have originated in Europe, but have subsequently spread around the world.

And the significance of both microprocessors and sustainability in 2020 could only have been guessed at back in 1971.

Heimtextil 2020: Schlussbericht

Die 50. Ausgabe der Heimtextil lieferte mit einem contentgetriebenen Programm starke Impulse für den Start der neuen Einrichtungssaison. Nachhaltigkeit avancierte dabei zum alles überstrahlenden Top-Thema. 63.000 Besucher informierten sich bei den 2.952 Austellern auf der weltweit führenden Fachmesse für Wohn- und Objekttextilien über die großen Themen der internationalen Branche. Wie erwartet sorgte insbesondere der einmalig frühe Termin für eine Delle bei den Besucherzahlen.

Die 50. Ausgabe der Heimtextil lieferte mit einem contentgetriebenen Programm starke Impulse für den Start der neuen Einrichtungssaison. Nachhaltigkeit avancierte dabei zum alles überstrahlenden Top-Thema. 63.000 Besucher informierten sich bei den 2.952 Austellern auf der weltweit führenden Fachmesse für Wohn- und Objekttextilien über die großen Themen der internationalen Branche. Wie erwartet sorgte insbesondere der einmalig frühe Termin für eine Delle bei den Besucherzahlen.

„Die Branche steht momentan vor immensen Herausforderungen. Das bekamen einige Beteiligte auf der Heimtextil zu spüren. Dennoch: Die Ausstellerzufriedenheit ist auf dem gleichen, guten Niveau wie im Vorjahr. Und die Zufriedenheit der Besucher ist sogar gestiegen – von 93 auf 95 Prozent. Neben des frühen Termins liegen die Gründe für den Dämpfer bei den Besucherzahlen vor allem bei der starken Konsolidierung der Fachgeschäfte beziehungsweise bei der Entwicklung vom stationären Handel in Richtung E-Commerce. Auch konjunkturell ist der Trend abgeschwächt“, erklärt Detlef Braun, Geschäftsführer der Messe Frankfurt. „Dazu passt, dass ganze 34 Prozent unserer Aussteller die aktuelle Branchenkonjunktur als schlecht bewerten, im Vergleich zu gerade mal 18 Prozent im Jahr zuvor.“

Das freut uns sehr. Dass der Platz gerade knapp wird, liegt auch daran, dass einige unserer langjährigen Aussteller ihre Fläche deutlich vergrößert haben. Zum anderen möchten sich zahlreiche neue Brands auf der Neonyt präsentieren und auch das Interesse aus dem Ausland wächst weiter“, so Thimo Schwenzfeier, Show Director der Neonyt bei der Messe Frankfurt.

“In China, the overall economic slowdown, and of course, the trade conflict with the United States is creating uncertainty,” explained Ms Wendy Wen, Senior General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. “However, thanks to the population size and purchasing power of the Chinese market, even a slower growth rate can equate to good business potential. The Chinese home textile industry is continuing to perform well against all odds. This steady growth injects confidence to the market.”
