Organiser hails success of Domotex 201928 January 2019
Domotex, the leading showcase for floorcoverings recorded a slight dip in attendance during the January 11-14 show, attributing this to “market concentration”.
However, in all other respects it was a success, according to the organiser Deutsche Messe AG. More than 1,400 exhibitors from 60 different countries attended the Hannover show.
And with close to 90% of all attendees having decision-making authority, the calibre of the show’s visitors remained extremely high, said Deutsche Messe. Purchasing volume per visitor went up, it added. About 70% of visitors came from abroad and attendance was up on the part of wholesale and retail professionals.
The figures also revealed an increase in attendance by architects, interior designers and contract business professionals. In addition, Domotex saw an increase in the amount of display space sold.
“We are very satisfied with the number, quality and internationality of attendees,” said Fabian Kölliker, head of marketing at Swiss Krono Group.
