Heimtextil to Debut "Let's Talk About..." Lecture Area

FRANKFURT, Germany-The upcoming Heimtextil trade fair will include a lecture area called "Let's talk about...."

The area will be located in the foyer of halls 5.1/6.1 of Messe Frankfurt, where the fair will take place from Jan. 11-14. On the first day, experts on eco-textiles will focus on sustainability issues. The second day will be devoted to sustainability topics focusing specifically on the hospitality trade.

On the third day of the fair, Luxury--New Luxury in Architecture and Interior Design will be the theme in the "Let's talk about..." area. On both Jan. 12 and Jan. 13, the editors of AIT, a magazine for professional architects, will offer guided tours tailored specifically to architects' requirements. The new lecture area will serve as the meeting place for these tours.

Olaf Schmidt, vice president of textiles and textile technologies for Messe Frankfurt, said, "With the new lecture area, 'Let's talk about...,' we are offering a central meeting point where not only architects, planners and decision makers in the hotel and catering business, but also all other visitors and exhibitors can find out about new developments in the sector."
