The CFA at Domotex 2018

FACTS: Domotex in numbers: 45,000 visitors from over 100 nations attended the four-day event with 1600 exhibitors covering 106,000 sqm of exhibition area (this equates to about the size of 15 football pitches).

The CFA logo was proudly displayed alongside numerous other organisations (including CFJ) on the British co-exhibitor stand in Hall 11. CFA manufacturer members F Ball, Carpenter and Cavalier Carpets were exhibiting and flying the flag for Britain on the 400sq m stand, which was organised by Simona Novelli and Hannah Davies from Overseas Fairs.

Richard Catt ceo of CFA said, “We were delighted to once again have a presence at Domotex. Thank you to Overseas Fairs for providing meeting and networking facilities for the British manufacturers involved. I’m sure that all concerned would have found the exhibition to be productive and worthwhile.’

Manufacturers of all product types from the UK flooring industry were represented at the exhibition: from F Ball’s adhesives and floor preparation products to the underlay to lay the flooring on from Ball and Young, Carpenter, and Interfloor.

Both carpet and resilient flooring for commercial applications were represented by Cavalier Carpets, Westex Carpets and Polyflor. Finally, flooring accessories such as stair nosings were on display from Genesis Global Systems.

All the companies were able to showcase new and innovative products within their product ranges to visitors from across the world and take advantage of the sales and export opportunities which presented themselves.

The product ranges from many other CFA manufacturer members could also be seen at the show through either their parent companies or the corresponding German subsidiary: adhesives and sub floor preparation from Ardex, Bostik, Forbo Eurocol, Mapei, Stauf and Uzin; underlay from Unifloor; flooring from Aspecta and Earthwerks; heat tools from Steinel; and floor surface maintenance products from Woca Denmark.

The CFA would encourage its manufacturer members to consider exhibiting next year. At the end of her first visit to Domotex Lisa Thompson, CFA’s new Marketing Executive, commented, “Anyone involved within the flooring industry should think about visiting Domotex as it really is quite a phenomenal experience.”
