Heimtextil and Covid-19

From the 10th to the 13th of January in 2023, Heimtextil will be held in Frankfurt am Main. The event will take the form of a face-to-face trade show. The event venue currently does not feature strict Covid-19 safety measures due to the lifting of the related national restrictions by the country's government. Similarly, Germany at present does not have travel restrictions in place. Attendees will be advised during their participation to follow advisable steps such as maintaining a social distance.


Heimtextil is a crucial international trade for the interior decoration industry, where trade visitors and major buyers are able to peruse the styles and trends of home textiles and fabrics to come out during the year. Dating back to 1971, Heimtextil has certainly managed to outgrow its first function as a marketplace. Instead, now it’s a benchmark event that sets the standards for quality and how to manufacture fabrics. The product portfolio extends to furniture fabrics, leather, bed linen, table decoration, bedding, blankets, carpeting, carpets, curtains, sun protection systems, embroidery, and wall coverings. You can’t expect a better start of the fiscal year than showcasing your line-up at the packed halls of Heimtextil.


As already mentioned, Heimtextil takes places at the start of the calendar year. It’s, in fact, one of the first events for the year organised at Messe Frankfurt, which is not only the host but the official organiser as well. The annual editions roll during the month of January, on average, and last for a total of four days. The doors are open to trade visitors from 09:00 am until 18:00 pm, though the last day wraps up an hour early at 17:00 pm.

As with most German exhibition centres, there are many ways to reach Messe Frankfurt and visitors are able to use public transport free of charge. You have three transport options – a metro line (4), three suburban train lines (S3, S4 & S6) and two tram lines (16 & 17).
