Valencia 5th March 2018.- the fourth edition of Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar is already showing signs of being another success story. Spain’s foremost event for the home textiles and decorating trades has secured repeat bookings from 86% of the companies that exhibited at the last fair and, as of today and with more than seven months to go before opening day, 140 companies and brands are already on board.
What is more, it is not just that almost the entire complement of exhibitors at the last few showcases are returning, but a number that had participated in the early days but for one reason or another had not returned, have now done so. These include industry leaders such as digital printing specialist TexAthenea, a major player in the contract sector.
Other returnees joining the Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar showcase include Barcelona-based Velfont, a leading manufacturer of bed linen, which has decided to renew its investment in the event, which is organised by Feria Valencia with backing from Ateval-Home Textiles From Spain.
As things stand at the moment the fair’s managers expect exhibitor numbers to overtake the last edition’s total of 171 companies and brands. It is worth noting that the marketing drive has barely started, yet the organisers are already receiving calls from top-level companies interested in being part of a platform that, with its fourth edition still to take place, has already established itself as Spain’s foremost business forum and a springboard for exports, with buyers hailing from 49 countries in 2017.
For Máximo Solaz, the fair’s director, one of the keys to the fair fulfilling its expectations lies in the “positive outcomes and efficiency of the showcase that is Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar”. “This year we are holding the fourth edition of the fair and have demonstrated that we are a real, effective business platform for our exhibitors,” he explains. “Business is done here, visitors see what is on trend and innovation is on show too” says Solaz, who also underscores that “this year we are back in the setting of Madrid’s Caja Mágica, a modern venue with all the services that both exhibitors and visitors really appreciate.”
The next edition of Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar takes place from 12th to 14th September de 2018 at the Caja Mágica exhibition centre in Madrid (Cno. Perales 23).
