Domotex 2021 becomes a three-day digital event
Due to the worldwide Corona pandemic, Domotex, the world's leading trade fair for floor coverings, will be held this year from 19 to 21 May as a purely digital event. The core element of the Domotex Digital Days is the live conference programme on Thursday, 20 May. Here, current and future-oriented topics of the international floor coverings industry will be addressed. In addition to the digital conference, the focus on the three days of the fair will be on business dating, exchange and networking. Nine weeks before the start, a good number of exhibitors and long-standing partners have already registered, such as Ipek - A. Ipektchi from the field of handmade carpets.
Sonia Wedell-Castellano, Global Director Domotex: "With the Domotex Digital Days, we want to give the carpet and floor coverings industry a virtual place to exchange ideas, offer networking opportunities and the chance to present product innovations to an international audience." A comprehensive conference programme is being put together for this purpose, she said.
The live conference programme includes lectures, panel discussions as well as product and innovation presentations with live discussions, top-class speakers and experts from the world of floor coverings. Focal points include the future trends of the trade around the topic of digitalisation for bricks-and-mortar retailers. In addition, experts and trend researchers will provide answers to current questions such as: "What comes after the current trend of cocooning?"
Of course, the Domotex Digital Days cannot replace a real trade fair experience. This, however, is being planned for January 2022: The next Domotex is to take place from 13 to 16 January 2022 as a hybrid event at the exhibition centre in Hanover.Carpet Home-Newsletter: Click here for free newsletter subscription
