Domotex Shifts Format in Even and Odd Years

Hannover, DE, June 20, 2024-Following the keynote theme “True Connections. Excellence in Design,” exhibitors from all over the world will be displaying their innovations at the Hannover Exhibition Grounds January 16 to 19, 2025. 

In even years, Domotex will offer a full flooring show, and in odd years, it will offer a carpets and rugs show. In part, this is due to the fact that Bau, a trade fair for architecture, materials and systems, takes place in Germany in odd years, which diminishes the need for a full flooring show.

"It was important for us to focus entirely on the needs of the industry," explains Sonia Wedell-Castellano, global director of Domotex Events worldwide. "In close consultation with our top exhibitors and the market, we have developed a strategy to make The Carpets & Rugs Edition as compact and efficient as possible. To this end, we have adapted our supporting program and planned new special formats and networking opportunities. Our aim is to provide all participants with a focused and productive show from which they can derive the greatest possible benefit."

In addition to antique collectors' items and timeless handmade classics, the product range will include high-quality knotted items in contemporary designs as well as a wide selection of modern machine weavings.

In Hall 2, visitors can look forward to live talks that will make their visit worthwhile. In January, the Carpet Design Awards (CDA) celebrate its 20th anniversary. Part of the CDA area will be Domotex on Stage. With speakers from the worlds of interior architecture and design, production and retail, the conference program offers a holistic view of the industry's future issues.

In the new Trend Café in Hall 3, visitors can experience tomorrow's interior trends in one central location and find out about sustainable products. The special display features an integrated coffee bar and lounge area.

By adjusting the frequency of the event, Deutsche Messe AG is responding to the strong demand from the flooring industry for a two-year cycle, which has been expressed for several years. Deutsche Messe AG reports a positive response to this strategic decision. From handmade oriental carpets and fine parquet flooring to weaving machines and installation technology: In January 2026 and every even-numbered year thereafter, the world's leading trade fair for the sector, Domotex, will bring together the international flooring community in Hannover, Germany.
