Heimtextil Think Tank

Heimtextil has created a Think Tank in order to more effectively meet its target audience’s particular needs and high standards. This unique round table brings together well-known, multi-award-winning experts who have years of experience and international know-how in contract furnishings, construction and interior architecture. It meets twice a year for a workshop and to draw up recommendations on taking the trade fair concept further. Everyone will be able to benefit from its input, creativity and visionary ideas: architects, interior architects, hoteliers and interior designers. As an exhibitor, you will benefit too, and as hosts it helps us expand and extend our knowledge and skills in the “Interior.Architecture.Hospitality” sector.

The members of the Think Tank:

Der Heimtextil Think Tank

In the Green Village – centrally located in Hall 8.0 – you can meet quality mark organisations and certifi cation bodies who will provide answers to the questions of interested trade visitors. In addition, international experts will be talking at Speakers’ Corner about resource conservation and production conditions. With our Green Directory, the guide to all suppliers of sustainably produced textiles, you’ll quickly and easily fi nd the right products.
