Domotex 2023: Exhibitors are very satisfied
A successful new start. After Domotex was cancelled two years in a row due to the pandemic, the world's leading trade fair for floor coverings and carpets started up again from 12 to 15 January. In eight halls - some of them quite airy - more than 730 exhibitors presented themselves to international visitors, 69 % of whom came from outside Germany.
Even though there were significantly fewer exhibitors in Hannover compared to 2020, this did not dampen the good mood. Whether handmade individual pieces or machine-woven collection goods: the exhibitors were consistently satisfied to enthusiastic about the response. Most visitors to the carpet halls were also satisfied with the range on offer, even though some buyers missed their regular suppliers.
The official conclusion of the organisers is correspondingly positive: "We are overwhelmed by the positive response as well as the energetic spirit of this year's Domotex", Sonia Wedell-Castellano, Global Director Domotex, is pleased to say. "Exhibitors and visitors alike are delighted to finally come together again at their industry trade fair to meet face-to-face, exchange ideas, make new contacts and close deals." The decision-maker share is 80%, she said. As a visitor survey verified by the trade fair data certifier FKM showed, around half of these decision-makers place orders with exhibiting companies during their stay at Domotex.
