Exhibitors report top-notch talks and solid order volumes

Exhibitors praised the high quality of their business talks due to a higher-than-ever percentage of decision-making trade professionals in attendance. In a survey among visitors, as many as 89 percent stated playing an "advisory" or "decisive" role in their companies¡¯ purchasing decisions.

As the flagship trade fair for the industry, DOMOTEX is also a vital marketing vehicle. "At DOMOTEX we can get the kind of product exposure in just four days that would otherwise take four months of business trips to find out. And thanks to the instant feedback, we know after just two days whether a particular innovation is likely to be successful," explained Emmanuel Lioen, Marketing Manager for the Beaulieu International Group, in Wielsbeke, Belgium.

Of the total of 22,600 visitors from abroad, over 60 percent came from European countries. Attendance was up from all continents, thus underscoring the show¡¯s status as the one event that pays top dividends for exhibitors and visitors alike by covering all the latest trends and attracting a truly international audience.

The majority of visitors at this year¡¯s DOMOTEX were once again retail and wholesale specialists. Visitors from the skilled trades were also found to be on the rise.
