DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR – To commemorate the 20th Anniversary
of the event, show organizers re-introduce the widely popular
InnovAction Flooring Campaign and cadex educational conferences.
New pavilions, new products
“InnovAction is a snapshot of the flooring industry’s future,
and our goal is to highlight the importance of this”, said
InnovAction architect Kostas Chatzigiannis. “The human brain is
naturally wired to fix attention on images and structures that
stand out from everyday surroundings. With this idea in mind, we
are building these custom areas because exhibitors are counting
on our support to strengthen the promotion of their new
concepts,” concluded Chatzigiannis.
The InnovAction Flooring Campaign and high-profile displays
are located in 3 locations throughout the exhibition with the
purpose of unveiling future market leading products in CARPET,
WOOD, and RESILIENT flooring. InnovAction exhibitors are
automatically enrolled in the Top-10 Best Products Competition
during the show. While onsite, 55,000+ fair attendees have the
opportunity to visit each showcase and cast a vote for their
favorite InnovAction products.
