Diverse Group Of Exhibitors Tests the Water at First DOMOTEX USA

ATLANTA — The inaugural Domotex USA debuted at the Georgia World Congress Center here from Feb. 28 through March 2 with an international mix of hard surface flooring, area rugs, carpeting and related products.

Exhibitors and attendees within the area rug sector were mostly encouraged by the show, with a prevailing wait-and-see stance to see if the American version of the German-based international fair becomes an essential stop on the industry’s trade-show circuit.

“Our goal is to be the global solution to floor coverings around the world,” said Raymond Bianchi, vice president, events & business development for Hannover Fairs USA. Bianchi said that Atlanta was chosen as the setting for Domotex USA because of its proximity to the many producers located nearby in Dalton, Ga., and the city’s convenient access to the Southeastern USA.
