In a few weeks, Heimtextil will once again take place in Frankfurt am Main. From 9 to 12 January, visitors will come into contact with international exhibitors active in the ‘home textiles’, ‘contract textiles’ and ‘textile design’ industries. Heimtextil will also introduce you to themes such as ‘New Sensitivity’ and ‘Econogy’ and, for the first time in the new hall 5.1, bring together international top exhibitors within the new product group ‘Carpets & Rugs’.
The 2024 edition promises to be an interesting three-day trade fair. The international offer, with 2,600 exhibitors from more than 60 countries, is therefore very extensive. From Belgium, there will be a very strong delegation on the exhibition floor in January with more than 30 strong names, including the Love Home Fabrics Group in hall 4.2 with Clarysse, Novaya, GTA, Talalay Global, Ter Molst and Symphony Mills who will occupy the largest exhibition stand at Heimtextil. In addition, Belgium is also taking the lead within the new Carpets & Rugs product group with large central stands from Ragolle, Verbatex and Kovantex, and Fedustria with its members Aarova, Meubinex, Broucks, Mercury Flooring & Vanhoutte will also be one of the triggers in this hall this edition. As always, our country is also very strongly represented at the fair in Decorative Fabrics, Furniture Fabrics, Window & Interior Decoration, Bed & Bath Fashion and Wall Decoration.

Curious about the exhibitor list? The link above not only allows you to search for exhibitors individually but also to further refine your search by nationality, special interests or product group using the filters. The location of each exhibitor is easy to find via the ‘see floorplan’ button.
One of Heimtextil’s important themes this year is sustainability. Using the term ‘Econogy’, Frankfurt emphasises the holistic link between ecology and economy. Exhibitors at the fair prove that these two terms can go hand in hand, and through the ‘Econogy Finder’, visitors can consciously look for sustainable products and fabrics at the fair. An Econogy hub will also be provided, where lectures and workshops on the theme will take place and free Econogy tours really highlight this new offering.
New: Carpets & Rugs in hall 5.1
As mentioned earlier, all eyes will be on the new product group Carpets & Rugs. Exhibitors who during previous editions of Heimtextil were scattered around the exhibition floor with machine-made and hand-knotted carpets are now gathered in hall 5.1, the newest hall on the exhibition grounds. This hall was completely demolished during the pandemic and rebuilt using the latest technology. For example, there are no columns, which makes the set-up possibilities infinite for attendees.
The new product group will attract a lot of big and new players in January. For example, Belgium’s Ragolle Rugs, at stand 5.1 A10, will be the largest exhibitor in the hall. Their stand was clearly positioned at the end of the central boulevard, it is impossible to miss them. Verbatex on stand 5.1 C29, as a newcomer, will also clearly take its place on this central boulevard and shine in this hall together with the other new Belgians: Kovantex (5.1 A21), Aarova (5.1 B01), Meubinex (5.1 A61), Broucks (5.1 A01), Mercury Flooring (5.1 A80) & Vanhoutte (5.1 A70).
To festively welcome this product group within Heimtextil, the organisation also foresees a lot of peripheral activities. For example, a Carpet Lounge will be provided, between Hall 5.1 and Hall 6.1, and visitors can take part in guided tours. More information can be found via this link.
