The overall design concept of the Expo draws its inspiration from “Furoshiki” wrappings. Selected suppliers will present their textile products and material solutions in the surroundings of the Expo.
In this way, they can position themselves to specifically target interior designers, hoteliers and project planners. In addition to the Expo, the Interior.Architecture.Hospitality.Lectures area offers a high-calibre programme of presentations, branch-specific guided tours, a special exhibitor directory and a meeting place where architects, interior designers and hotel furnishers can network. New and of particular interest to hoteliers is the expansion of the product portfolio to include bedroom textiles.
