“The pandemic year was challenging and forced us to look for new digital solutions, last year Heimtextil Russia took place in online format. This year I am glad to announce that the trade fair will happen in a traditional format, allow the visitors and exhibitors to show the latest novelties. Our team promises a lot of interesting events, expositions and fringe program activities. After almost two-year break I’m happy to meet everybody in person. I invite everyone to “feel textiles offline” in September. See you in IEC "Expocentre”!” commented Eugen Alles, Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt Rus.
