DOMOTEX, the meeting point of the global carpet and flooring industry, will take place in Hannover, Germany on 11-14 January with its 2024 edition. Sustainability, circular economy and environmental protection will play a key role in the organisation for the second time. Furthermore, GREEN COLLECTION award ceremony will be organised in the DOMOTEX special area of the exhibition and nature-inspired designs will be awarded in 4 different categories.

DOMOTEX Global Director Sonia Wedell-Castellano underlined that sustainability should be an indispensable issue today, saying; “In our world where natural resources are gradually depleting and the effects of the climate crisis are beginning to directly affect our lives, sustainability should be an integral part of what we do in every field. For this reason, at DOMOTEX, we decided to continue and expand the scope of our value-based main theme ‘FLOORED BY NATURE’ as well as our special area called ‘THE GREEN COLLECTION’.”

Director of TFI Aachen and chair of the jury for this year’s GREEN COLLECTION Award, Dr. Jacqueline Lemm said; “We are confident that DOMOTEX will meet the expectations of visitors, especially in the special area of THE GREEN COLLECTION in Hall 23, with outstanding presentations and innovative products, as well as current research projects and an inspiring conference programme.” She also added that it is highly valuable for them to continue their successful cooperation with DOMOTEX.

This year, the jury will be chaired by Director of TFI Aachen Dr Jacqueline Lemm. The jury will also include the publisher of the industry magazine Floor Focus, Kemp Harr, and Managing Director of the non-profit organisation Label STEP Reto Aschwanden.
