With six months still to go before the doors to the next edition open, Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar, which is set to run from 22nd to 25th September at Feria Valencia, already has more than 70 companies signed up to exhibit.
For Máximo Solaz, the show’s director, “the sector is responding and is clearly excited by the textile offering returning to Valencia and by the potential implicit in the show running alongside Feria Hábitat Valencia”.
The prospects are looking good for Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar. Spain’s textiles show par excellence already has 70 confirmed exhibitors, six months ahead of opening day. The fair is slated to run from 22nd to 25th September at Feria Valencia.
The figure means the event has already achieved almost 75% of its expected occupancy and confirms the excellent response from the industry to what is a key edition of the fair given that it marks the return of the textiles offering to Feria Valencia after five editions in Madrid and, also, that it will be running together with Feria Hábitat Valencia.
In that regard, according to the event’s director, Máximo Solaz, “we are aware that we need to carry on working on marketing initiatives, focusing on introducing new exhibit areas and making it easier for the industry’s leading operators to take part, so this great news regarding stand bookings tells us that the sector is on board with our strategy of continuing to expand the fair in pursuit of new opportunities for growth.”
For Solaz, “the textile sector’s return to Feria Valencia and the synergies that can be established through the fair taking place together with Hábitat will open up new business opportunities for our exhibitors, both in Spain and internationally. The textile industry has understood this, as have bodies such as ATEVAL – Home Textiles From Spain that are helping drive the fair’s growth”.

Altran Solutions, Amr - Industrias Texteis, Antonio Ferre, Antonio García Gb Grup, Arce Textile, Artex Sociedad Textil, Artica Textile, Ateval - Home Textiles From Spain, Athenea, Aznar Textil, Belnou, C & D Fabrics, C2 Home Decor, Cañete, Casa Moda, Casper Dos, Comercio Y Distribución De Tejidos De Mediterráneo, Comersan, Cotoblau, Cotopur – Kamasana, Creaciones Euromoda, Destiny Decor and Digital Walls.

New designers’ and textile editors’ sections
One good example of the enhanced scenario for the upcoming edition of Home Textiles From Spain is that the showcase is opening up to new segments of the industry such as textile designers, who will have a dedicated space within the new ‘Home Textiles Designers Area’.
Equally, textile editors have also welcomed the new prospects that will open up as a result of the fair taking place in Valencia in September together with Hábitat, with which it shares synergies, especially in terms of contract specifiers and professionals.
