DOMOTEX Russian has been moved to a new time slot with the second season of the tradeshow for carpets and floor coverings to be held from 1 to 3 April 2014 instead of 25 to 27 September 2013 as initially planned.
The venue has also changed to the ARTPLAY Design Centre in Moscow instead of Moscow’s Crocus Expo International Exhibition Centre.
“Many participating companies had requested that the fair be moved to a later slot to reflect Russia’s unique market situation,” explained Andreas Gruchow, member of Deutsche Messe’s managing board.
“The Russian sales and order cycles and the country’s summertime building and construction season favour running the fair in spring,” he added.
DOMOTEX is held in Hanover, Germany, every January.
“Staging DOMOTEX Russia in spring enables our exhibitors to better synchronise their offering with the Russian order cycle and to thus more effectively build their business in the Russian Federation and the Commonwealth of Independent States,” Gruchow stated.
He continued: “We are confident that this move will further strengthen DOMOTEX Russia and boost the business development prospects of our international exhibitors in the booming Russian market.”
DOMOTEX Russia showcases a full range of hand-and-machine-made carpets, textile floor coverings, parquets and laminate flooring and resilient floor coverings as well as application, laying, cleaning and maintenance technologies.
Next year’s show will be complemented by a supporting program of conferences and events featuring a line-up of industry experts.
