ABK open: Larger rugs section
More than 120 suppliers and service providers representing 200 brands will be showing their portfolios to retailers across some 16,000 sqm of hall space—the fair is thus fully booked out, essentially. This trade fair is mainly about home textiles: bed linen, terry cloth, table linen and interior products, as well as bedding, sleeping systems and bed frames.
New at this trade fair is the noticeably expanded range of rugs. More and more exhibitors have area rugs in their range. And for the first time, pure rug suppliers can also be found in Bad Salzuflen. Exhibitors will include the brands ABC Italia, Obsession, Oritop, PAD, Paulig, Peyer Syntex, Rug Studios, Theko and Tisca. The decorative fabrics and curtains segment has grown as well.
Trade fair organiser Thomas Fehr commented: “ABK Open Home is an event aimed at upscale furniture and bedding retailers—that is basically what we are all about. The fair is open to related industries, so other large associations and big-box buyers are within our target group as well. Expanding the portfolio to include carpet and curtain suppliers is thus a logical step that totally makes sense. Our supplier structure is carefully curated to appeal to the relevant retailers and purchasing managers.”
Visitors can look forward to a compact showing of the latest products with free admission, free parking, everything close together ... and even free catering in a spacious restaurant area that promotes networking and interaction. And the trade fair party, to be held Wednesday evening from 18:00, will also present superb opportunities for meeting up and talking.
