The next edition of Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar, initially slated to take place this coming September, has now been re-scheduled for 2021, as agreed by the Organizing Committee for the event, which takes place at Feria Valencia and is supported on the organizational front by Ateval – Home Textiles From Spain.
Prompted by the uncertainties generated by Covid-19, especially as far as guaranteeing attendance by international buyers is concerned, the move signals that the fair for professionals in the home textiles, upholstery and décor sectors is focusing on ensuring as far as is possible that exhibitors do business at the event. What is more, companies also recognised the difficulties the sector is experiencing as a result of the economy stalling and that the best option was to take a break and re-schedule this 50th edition of Textilhogar, made extra special by its return to Valencia after five years in Madrid, for 2021.
The Committee agreed that Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar is to resume its traditional format in September 2021, at Feria Valencia, coinciding with Feria Hábitat Valencia. The same options, terms and conditions for exhibiting as had been offered for this year will apply to the 2021 fair.
We will be looking at the possibility for exhibitors to take part in Ágora Encuentros Hábitat VLC in November.
ATEVAL, in partnership with Feria Valencia and supported by ICEX and IVACE Internacional, will be reviewing digital alternatives to make up for the fair not running in 2020 that would foster customer loyalty amongst buyers in the industry and attract new, qualified, customers.
One of the options set to be reviewed is a parallel participation in the upcoming Ágora Encuentros Hábitat VLC, the new trade fair platform due to take place this coming November that was devised after Feria Hábitat Valencia announced recently that it would be postponing this year’s edition to 2021.
As an event, Ágora Encuentros Hábitat VLC is a dedicated platform for presenting new products, centred on brands and featuring a limited number of products, it also offers a facility to schedule B2B meetings.
The move reflects the sector’s openness to trial different scenarios for showcasing their latest products, whilst waiting for the return of Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar in 2021.
