Domotex Russia 2012: almost two-thirds booked

Hannover/Moscow— From 26 – 28 September 2012, Deutsche Messe RUS will be holding its first trade fair for carpets and floor coverings in Moscow – DOMOTEX Russia!

The flooring industry welcomes this opportunity to enter the Russian and CIS market. This feedback was very obvious during DOMOTEX HANNOVER – the world’s leading trade fair for carpets and floor coverings. “During the show, we had the chance to speak with our customers in Hannover about our new event in Russia. Numerous exhibitors signed in for DOMOTEX Russia even before DOMOTEX HANNOVER ended, so that by now almost two thirds of the space are already booked”, says Martin Folkerts, Director Global Fairs at Deutsche Messe AG.

The industry has good reasons to participate in the first show dedicated to floorings in Moscow as Balta states: “For Balta Rugs, a division of the Balta Group, and a worldwide player in the production of quality woven area rugs it is of strategic importance to be present and visible in all key markets including Russia. DOMOTEX Russia is the ideal forum for us to meet new potential customers and to develop new business opportunities in Russia and beyond,” explains Geert Vanden Bossche, Marketing Director of Balta Group. Balta will present their products alongside leading companies from various regions and product segments such as Dura, Osmo and Al Sorayai. So far, companies form Bangladesh, Belgium, France, Germany, India, Iran, Italy, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi-Arabia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and Uzbekistan have signed in.

Covering all kinds of carpets and floorings including carpets, parquet, laminates, natural stone as well as textile and resilient floor coverings DOMOTEX Russia is set to attract professional visitors from Russia and the CIS region. Distributors and buyers from the retail and wholesale trades are vital contacts, as the cooperation with an excellent network of distribution partners is essential in order to gain access to the Russian marketplace. Other key target groups include architects, planners and decision-makers from the property development and building construction sector.

DOMOTEX Russia 2012 will coincide with Heimtextil Russia 2012 and with the trade fair R + T Russia 2012 at the IEC “Crocus Expo” site in Moscow. This constellation of events will guarantee potentially large attendances when the new trade fair makes its Russian debut.
