With around 2400 exhibitors and participants from over 120 countries, Heimtextil 2023 kicks off the trade fair year.

The overarching theme of sustainability will once again be clearly in evidence at Heimtextil 2023. The “Green Directory” exhibitor guide and the “Green Village” will provide important guidance within the comprehensive sustainable offerings. This year, the popular “Green Tours” will once again lead interested visitors to selected exhibitors to find out more about their sustainability strategies and products.

As a new feature, the Trends Area will be presented in Hall 9.0. The spectacular design and trend area will reveal the Heimtextil 2023/24 trends, which were developed in advance by the international design agencies Stijlinstituut Amsterdam (Netherlands), FranklinTill (Great Britain) and SPOTT Design & Business (Denmark).

Interior.Architecture.Hospitality, the specialist programme for interior designers, architects and hospitality experts, is also taking place at Heimtextil 2023. The programme includes the Interior.Architecture.Hospitality LECTURES, in which renowned architects and hotel experts highlight their work and discuss current topics in the sector, and the Interior.Architecture.Hospitality TOURS, which will take participants on a tour of the highlights and innovative textile solutions in the contract sector.

There will also be the Heimtextil Sleep & More conference. For the last four days, experts have been discussing the latest discoveries, developments and trends in the field of healthy sleep from different industry perspectives. And finally, the New & Next programme for young talent offers start-ups and young talent the opportunity to present themselves to the international industry. The ideas and product innovations of the New & Next exhibitors make a valuable contribution to the multifaceted range of Heimtextil.
