Carpets to dominate again
The carpet sector has historically been a large segment of DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR and at the upcoming 19th edition, running from March 21-23, 2017, it will again be the largest one.
Five dedicated halls totaling over 60,000 square meters gross will play host to everything from hand-made carpets, wall-to-wall carpets, carpet tiles, woven and machine-tufted carpets, mats, carpet raw materials and the latest carpet technology. As of September 15th, 2016, more than 71 per cent of the carpet dedicated exhibiting space was booked with over 400 Chinese and international carpet and carpet technology manufacturers applying for participation.
UK pavilion for the first time
The carpet sector follows the general trend of the show this year with an increasing demand for participation from brands outside of China. For the first time, a national pavilion hosting carpet manufacturers from the United Kingdom is planned by the Overseas Fair Division of Birmingham Chamber of Commerce on behalf of UK Trade and Investment Department. The United Kingdom pavilion will join other national pavilions from Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands and the USA, traditionally hosted in the hall dedicated to the international machine made carpet manufacturers.
Visitors will have the opportunity to outsource the most up to date masterpieces and designs from the hand-made carpet world in the hall dedicated to hand-made carpet manufacturers. This hall will also host the Carpet InnovAction area with displays of the latest products and innovations from the carpet industry. The latest types of carpet raw materials, carpet machineries, carpet cleaning & maintenance products will be brought to the audience by well-known brands in the Carpet Technology hall.
