The NedGraphics team got 2023 off to a cracking start by participating in Heimtextil in Frankfurt in early January. Heimtextil is the leading global trade fair for home textiles, this year attracting 44,000 visitors and 2,400 exhibitors from 129 nations.
We welcomed customers and met prospects from several European countries, as well as from Turkey, Brazil, Mexico, and India. Our team were kept busy demoing our latest version of NedGraphics and Aquario software products, resulting in our first Aquario order for the Turkish team!
Our booth was well situated in the Designers Hall, its eye-catching graphics stood out well and the demo pods were in constant use. We sensed our competitors were a little envious!
The fair explored the theme of sustainability in textiles, with lectures and exhibits indicating a growing consciousness in understanding how textiles can be reused as part of a circular economy. Several speakers talked about their work in the fashion apparel and home textile space, and how important it is for designers to consider garment or fabric reuse from the early stages of the design process. It is certain that many NedGraphics and Aquario customers are having these discussions internally.
Congratulations to the Team for a successful Heimtextil fair!
