CHICAGO – The organiser of DOMOTEX USA, the inaugural edition of the flooring innovations trade show and conference, has opened its registration desk for retail buyers and industry professionals while posting its exhibitor floor plan to its web site.
In a statement, the organisers said the new event brings together top suppliers from more than 20 countries with 90% of its planned 90,000 square feet of exhibition space sold. To date, approximately 50% of exhibitors at DOMOTEX USA 2019 will showcase soft surface products, 40% will highlight hard surface products and 10% will feature flooring technology.

“When DOMOTEX decided to enter the U.S. market it was in the belief that the flooring industry and community should be celebrated in America as it is globally with a focused event. DOMOTEX USA, in Atlanta, is America’s home for flooring now and going forward because of the response of the industry. We are thankful for their confidence in us,” said Raymond L. Bianchi, HFUSA vice president of events and business development.
Signed up exhibitors for the first DOMOTEX USA include Shaw, Engineered Floors, The Dixie Group, Milliken, Swiss Krono, Mullican, Stanton Carpet and Merinos to name a few.

“It has been our commitment from day one to build and deliver a world-class event that addresses the specific needs of the flooring industry. We have listened and will continue to listen to what the industry wants and needs to equip DOMOTEX USA attendees and exhibitors with the tools, connections and experiences that are essential to elevating their business,” said Donna Busse, DOMOTEX USA show director.
More information on educational programs, networking events and other show features including local factory tours will be announced later this fall.
