Heimtextil will opens its doors from January 11 to 14 2022 with admission for vaccinated or recovered participants and will be all about re-starting safe, personal encounters during onsite trade fair visits.

Thanks to comprehensive safety and hygiene measures, the current regulations of Germany’s state and federal governments will be met in all respects. Messe Frankfurt’s global network of subsidiaries and sales partners have also confirmed that almost all trade fair customers have been vaccinated with EU-approved vaccines.

The anticipation of personal face-to-face exchanges – making new international contacts, inspiring business encounters, intensive networking and experiencing textile innovations offline – is greater than ever, the show organiser says. As the most important international trade fair for home and contract textiles, Heimtextil 2022 will bring together retailers, wholesalers, designers, furnishing or bedding retailers, interior decorators, architects, hotel outfitters and many other decision makers with a diverse range of international product innovations and trends in textile interior design, on site and at one meeting point.

In addition to personal business encounters, the re-start of Heimtextil after a two-year trade fair break will make possible again what neither private showrooms nor digital product presentations can provide – a bundled and efficient market overview of trends in the home textiles industry in Frankfurt.

Germany’s federal and governmental regulations, which have been in force since November 22, 2021, confirm that Heimtextil can be held with admission for vaccinated or recovered participants.

“With regard to the official obligated admission for vaccinated or recovered participants, we are pleased to have valid results from our global network of subsidiaries and sales partners corroborating that almost all participating exhibitors along with their teams from all international core markets have been vaccinated with approved vaccines,” said Olaf Schmidt, Messe Frankfurt’s vice president of textiles textile technologies. “Similar results are available on the visitor side, and based on this, Heimtextil 2022 will take place across ten halls with around 1,500 exhibitors from 50 countries.

“The health and safety of all participants is our top priority. Our comprehensive safety and hygiene concept has already proven successful at previous trade fairs. In addition to Formnext, which was recently held in mid-November at the Frankfurt exhibition centre, these include as well the Book Fair a few weeks ago and Automechanika, which was held in September. Both fairs were also held here in Frankfurt.

Trade fair participants must present up-to-date proof of vaccination or convalescence at the entrance. In addition, there will be further measures taken, such as online ticketing, 100% fresh air supply, generous design of halls and entrances to maintain safety distances and intensive cleaning measures.
