- Event reasserts leading position in industry, showcasing 234 brands and labels from 83 exhibitors. The showcase includes Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and German exhibitors and brands from abroad (Italy, the UK, Sweden, Germany, Holland, the USA, Belgium, France and Japan).
València 31th July 2018.- Textilhogar, the full story. Spain’s only 100% trade only dedicated fair for home textiles, upholstery and décor is getting ready for its next edition, which runs from 12th to 14th September and is without a shadow of a doubt poised to be the biggest of recent years. The showcase will be 36% bigger than last time round, with 234 brands and labels being showcased. It will also be occupying more space, courtesy of a new area dedicated to the contract sector, titled ‘El Cubo, Business Contract Zone’, which will feature Spain’s leading textile manufacturers.
This is definitely going to be an edition that nobody in the trade will want to miss. Textilhogar has become a must-attend event for professionals in the industry such as upholstered furniture manufacturers, decorators and interior designers, who come to see not just the biggest range of products in the country and the leading operators but also the fabrics, textures and colours that will set the trends for the coming season. In this regard and with more than a month still to go to opening day, expectations are very optimistic and forecasts decidedly positive for an event that last time round received more than 2,300 high level trade visitors with considerable purchasing power and hopes to improve on that figure this September.
The fair is to that end returning to the multi-purpose venue that delivered such good results last year: Madrid’s Caja Mágica. The venue itself boasts leading edge design with full facilities for visitors and exhibitors and, with 83 exhibitors signed up to showcase 234 brands and labels, the exhibition space is full. The showcase includes Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and German exhibitors and brands from abroad (Italy, the UK, Sweden, Germany, Holland, the USA, Belgium, France and Japan).
Between them they will fill the three halls that had initially been reserved together with a new exhibition and theatre are dedicated to the contract business that has been styled ‘The Cubo Business Contract Zone’. This new area will feature a series of innovative spaces in which ‘contract’ commissions will be re-created by celebrated designers. Also, the latest new products and designs from seven of Spain’s leading textile manufacturers, representing over 40 top brands and labels, will also be on show in ‘El Cubo’.
The organizers are also finalizing the details for a large group of international buyers to visit the fair as part of the International Guest Buyer programme co-ordinated by textile trade association ATEVAL – Home Textiles from Spain and supported by IVACE Internacional and ICEX. The initiative has focused on countries that offer the most potential for exhibitors at Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar to develop as overseas markets.
