Frankfurt am Main: networking hub of the global carpet business
With Frankfurt am Main as an international trading hub and its worldwide reach through direct flights, all trade show participants benefit from the optimal accessibility of the site. “We are very pleased about the strong presence of international manufacturers, whose pronounced degree of professionalization, outstanding quality and strong commitment to environmental protection and corporate social responsibility play a significant role in the global carpet business. The high degree of internationalization at Heimtextil enables them to network, especially with new contacts from relevant sales markets such as North America, Europe or the UAE,” says Bettina Bär.

Thanks to the high internationality of Heimtextil, we are looking forward to new global contacts."
"The high number of new exhibitors underlines the positive response to the launch of the Carpets & Rugs product segment and offers buyers the opportunity to network with completely new suppliers.
