Big celebrations as Heimtextil  turns 50

The global home textiles industry will meet for the 50th time at Heimtextil in Frankfurt am Main from 7-10 January 2020. With a great anniversary party, a showcase presenting design classics from the past few decades, an anniversary film and other activities, Heimtextil will review the past half century since its first edition in 1971.

“50 editions over the course of the past five decades are a rarely experienced phenomenon in the fast-moving global trade fair industry and are practically an eternity,” says Detlef Braun, CEO of Messe Frankfurt. “As a design show, Heimtextil constantly reinvents itself, continues to present state-of-the-art home trends as it has always done and makes the furnishing trends of tomorrow tangible.”

Messe Frankfurt will be inviting exhibitors and visitors to the highlight of the celebrations, the big Heimtextil @ Night party in hall 11.1 on 8 January 2020. Heimtextil exhibitors from the very beginning will be warmly welcomed and given special attention. As part of the celebrations, Messe Frankfurt will present an anniversary film, looking back at earlier Heimtextil editions as well as music acts from the last five decades.

In hall 9.0, Heimtextil will present design classics from the past 50 years in a special showcase area. Here, the trade fair will invite people to take a journey through time and a tour of discovery through five decades of Heimtextil history. The presentation is based on editorials from interior magazines. Four rooms incorporate colours, shapes, furniture and design objects from past decades.

To mark the anniversary, Heimtextil will launch a textile accessory of its own creation: a scarf in the unisex colour combination of petrol, turquoise and lilac to match the current trade fair campaign. It will be available for exhibitors and visitors to buy during the trade fair.
