Quality over quantity: anniversary edition of Heimtextil sets the themes for the new furnishing season
With a content-driven programme, the 50th edition of Heimtextil delivered strong impetus for the start of the new furnishing season. Sustainability was placed firmly at top of the agenda, outshining all other topics. 63,000 visitors gathered information about the major themes dominating the international industry from 2,952 exhibitors at the world's leading trade fair for home and contract textiles. As expected, the unusually early date led to a drop in visitor numbers.*
Messe Frankfurt generates €733 million in sales

Adding value with sustainable business practices
For Messe Frankfurt, sustainability means acting as a responsible corporate citizen while continuing to strengthen the Group’s performance – it is something that encompasses economic, ecological and social factors. Social, economic and ecological aspects of sustainability are key components of our business and are reflected in the various activities of all parts of the Group worldwide. CSR activities are divided into four areas: Environment/Sustainability, Social Responsibility, Education/Science and Commitment to Culture and Sport.
From a medieval marketplace to global trade fair partner
Frankfurt has been a renowned trade fair site for more than 800 years. Back then, merchants and businessmen met at the “Römer”, a medieval building in the heart of the city that served as a market place; from 1909 onwards, they came together on the grounds of the new Festhalle.
Diversity of guest events
Since 1949, Messe Frankfurt has been an established partner for some 250* guest events per year at its Frankfurt base. With its unmistakable architecture and highly functional and flexible halls and conference facilities, the Frankfurt exhibition grounds is the ideal location for all kinds of event formats. At the same time, Messe Frankfurt is a strong service partner, providing individual consulting and services and one of the most state-of-the-art infrastructures of any trade fair worldwide.
