Summer move for Heimtextil

Heimtextil will take place as a one-off summer event, after this month’s planned show was cancelled because of the pandemic.

The exhibition will take place from 21-24 June, alongside Techtextil and Texprocess. ‘It is great to see the high level of trust that our exhibitors have in us, even after more than two years of the pandemic. The results of the vote and the first confirmations of participation show the need to finally return to personal business meetings and new global contacts in face-to-face exchanges before the end of this year is as strong as ever – even if the reunion this year will take place in a different setting than usual,’ says Olaf Schmidt, Messe Frankfurt vice president textiles & textile technologies.

The first manufacturers and brands have already confirmed their participation – including long-standing Heimtextil exhibitors such as Jover Group, Lenzing Group and Hohmann Weberei.

‘From our point of view, it is a good decision to reschedule Heimtextil to summer this year. We need a platform to present our new products to the market. The industry needs to see each other again, a personal relationship is important. We hope that the situation this summer will allow exhibitors and visitors to travel freely and that the fair will mark the beginning of a return to normality,’ says Francisco Jover Pastor, Jover Group ceo.

‘It means a lot to us that Heimtextil 2022 will be held as part of the Summer Special. In June, we will finally be able to connect personally with the global trade again at a central location and show live what is possible with Tencel lyocell and modal fibres for the interior sector. Especially for home textiles, it is very important to see and touch the products. We are looking forward to many new contacts and to seeing long-time customers and companions again at Heimtextil 2022 this summer,’ says Ebru Bayramoğlu, Lenzing Group head of global business development.

‘We are positive about the summer date and will participate with the same stand planning for June that was planned for the January event,’ says Martin Buchta, Hohmann Weberei ceo.

Buyers will be able for the first time to experience global trends and innovations along large parts of the textile value chain bundled in one place – starting with fibres and yarns, through functional textiles, textile technologies and production and finishing processes, to the end product for textile interiors and recycling. ‘The close proximity to Techtextil and Texprocess provides Heimtextil buyers with exciting new perspectives on innovative functionalities of technical textiles or also non-wovens as well as processing technologies for the home textiles industry. Through these synergies, we create additional incentives to attract national and international buyers for the re-launch of Heimtextil in summer,’ says Schmidt.

The simultaneous presence of retailers, interior designers, textile engineers, architects, material experts from research and development, as well as machine and technology specialists, will also give exhibitors at the three exhibitions the unique opportunity to establish business contacts in completely new constellations through cross-networking.
