DOMOTEX has announced their keynote theme for the 2023 edition, which will take place in Hannover, Germany from 12-15 Jan 2022. “Floored by Nature”, the new theme, will deal with questions about a healthy, natural and sustainable living in working and living spaces.
According to the press release by DOMOTEX, “Floored by Nature” also stands for the fascination that nature exudes as a source of inspiration and serves as a role model. Value-based themes and issues surrounding responsibility towards the environment and nature will be DOMOTEX’s agenda.
For the 33rd edition of DOMOTEX, new areas of application, trends and innovations are waiting to be discovered. Eight months before DOMOTEX 2023, the hall spaces are already well booked. DOMOTEX reports that both organisers and exhibitors are optimistic and anticipate a strong event, which will once again be organised as an on-site trade show, including digital participations.
“The resource-saving use of materials, the circular economy, a new sourcing debate, healthy living and working, and advancing digitalisation in all areas of life are also shaping the flooring industry and with it the world’s leading trade show DOMOTEX,” said Sonia Wedell-Castellano, global director DOMOTEX, Deutsche Messe.
“But serious raw material shortages, high transport costs and further rising energy prices are also creating major challenges for the industry. DOMOTEX is also a showcase for these issues, highlighting potential, addressing opportunities and risks, and providing best practices.”
“Floored by Nature” consists of three further topics: “Connecting Markets”, “Conscious Living”, and “Colourful Nature”.
“Connecting Markets” highlights the need to adapt to changing conditions, amid constantly changing import and export relationships, supply relationships, supply bottlenecks, increased energy and production costs, digital services and new online trading platforms.
“Conscious Living” implies the desire for healthy living and working, and the commitment to environmentally friendly materials and manufacturing processes with the aim of creating balanced and trend-conscious living and well-being spaces. It also focuses on the circular use of materials.
With the third focus theme “Colourful Nature”, DOMOTEX will present nature as a new focal point as a source of inspiration for trendy designs, colour plays and patterns. Nature fascinates not only with its recycling systems and with measured use of resources, but also with its changing and surprising plays of colour, shapes, patterns and trendy designs.
