Russia, June, 17, 2013—Domotex Russia has been moved to a new time slot in first half of the
year. The second season of Russia’s tradeshow for carpets and floor coverings
will now be held from April 1 to 3, 2014, instead of September 25 to 27, 2013
as originally planned.
The venue has also changed, and the
fair will now be held at the ARTPLAY Design Center in Moscow, instead of
Moscow’s Crocus Expo International Exhibition Center.
“Many participating companies had
requested that the fair be moved to the later slot to reflect Russia’s unique
market situation,” explained Andreas Gruchow, a member of Deutsche Messe’s
Managing Board. “The Russian sales and order cycles and the country’s
summertime building and construction season favor running the fair in spring.”
DOMOTEX is held in Hannover, Germany in
January of each year.
The new timing of DOMOTEX Russia, a
spin-off of the main DOMOTEX fair in Germany, means that manufacturers of
carpets and floorcoverings can now complement their showcase at the main event
with a second presentation in April that is targeted specifically at buyers and
trade visitors from Russia and its neighboring states.
DOMOTEX Russia showcases the full range
of hand- and machine-made carpets, textile floor coverings, parquet and
laminate flooring and resilient floor coverings as well as application, laying,
cleaning and maintenance technologies.
