Heimtextil visitor count inches up in 2nd post-pandemic January expo

Frankfurt, Germany – Despite a nationwide rail strike in Germany last week, Heimtextil 2024 drew a higher number of attendees than it did in 2023.

Show organizer Messe Frankfurt reported 46,000 visitors for the international home textiles expo, which wrapped up last Friday, Jan. 12. That was up 4.5% compared to last year, but still down 27% from the pre-Covid edition in early 2020.

Compared to last year, the fair drew higher numbers of visitors from China, Germany, India, Japan, Croatia, Macedonia, Pakistan, Slovakia and Cyprus.

The show featured 2,838 exhibitors from 60 nations, up 25% from last year and down just 4% compared to 2020.

The top 10 exhibiting countries were China, India, Turkey, Pakistan, Italy, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Great Britain and the Netherlands. Heimtextil 2023 also saw an increase in the exhibitor numbers from Belgium, Bulgaria, China, India, Japan, Poland, Sweden, the Czech Republic, the USA and Egypt.

“Heimtextil ends with overwhelming participation. The increase in space, exhibitors and visitors in 2024 makes the following clear: the leading trade fair for home and contract textiles remains on course for growth – and sets new standards for a sustainable and AI-driven textile industry,” said Detlef Braun, member of the executive board of Messe Frankfurt.
