During the 50th anniversary (January 2020) of Heimtextil in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, it was announced that Messe Frankfurt and Inexmoda will launch Heimtextil Colombia, a new trade show for the Americas that will take place in the city of Medellin, Colombia, South America. Messe Frankfurt, owner of Heimtextil has licensed the event to Inexmoda, the Latin American Fashion institute creator of successful textile and fashion trade shows for this market.

Heimtextil Colombia will open its doors from the 26th through the 28th of April 2022 in Medellin, one of the most important and innovative cities of Colombia (South America). The arrival of Heimtextil Colombia to the Americas will represent the first step to position this country as the meeting place for retailers, wholesalers, designers, furniture and bedding stores, interior decorators, interior architects, architects, hotel outfitters and many other decision makers of the industry in the commercial calendar, and a place to find new opportunities for a growing market.

The development of tourism and mobility in the Americas has driven a surprising increase in the demand of hospitality services and boosted construction rates, which creates new opportunities for companies and professional buyers in these categories, who will be able to meet at Heimtextil Colombia.

On show will be trends and innovations for the most attractive categories in the Americas such as smart bedding, bath fashion, carpets and rugs, wall decoration, decorative fabrics, contract textiles and the hospitality business. The show is expected to include 110 exhibitors from countries such as Portugal, Spain, Colombia, Italy, Turkey, India and France.

Visitors are expected from the Americas, especially from those countries with the highest market potential: USA, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, and Colombia.
