Global trend information becomes useful when it is placed in context, so welcome to a newway of communicating textile innovation, a progressive platform and concept: the Heimtextil Theme Park.
Clear visions on textile innovations will be outlined, durable and sustainable concepts will continue to be a focus. The theme for the season "Experience" will be translated into specific thematic areas covering 'Retail', 'Hospitality', 'Technology' and 'Sustainability'.
A raft of activities and displays draws attention to design-oriented, contemporary issues. These include a 'Materials Gallery', which covers selected products by a number of the exhibitors. It provides an overview of the trends in home textiles, categorised according to the thematic trends for 2015/16. Additionally, there is a 'Colour Pavilion' to showcase current trends in colours.
Heimtextil will also offer lectures by high-calibre speakers in a 'Conference Space' and the 'Community Area', thus encouraging discussion between designers and their specialist colleagues. Moreover, there will also be some inspiring film presentations in the 'Theme Park Cinema'.
The forum will be propagated throughout the fair by means of trendspots in various halls.
