Coupon Business Finder: New Exhibitor Directory For Heimtextil 2012 Lists Suppliers Of Small Batch Sizes

FRANKFURT — September 26, 2011 — A service geared to the needs of specialist retailers and interior
decorators: for the next Heimtextil (11 to 14 January 2012) Messe Frankfurt is offering a new
theme-specific exhibitor directory in the shape of the Coupon Business Finder. The Finder lists
exhibitors that offer home and household textiles in small and very small quantities.

The new Coupon Business Finder is deliberately aimed at Heimtextil visitors from the
specialist retail trade and the interior decorating business who want to order quantities tailored
to their varying needs for a flexible product range. “The new Coupon Business Finder provides an
overview of exhibitors whose production facilities enable them to offer even small batch sizes”,
explains Ulrike Wechsung, Director Heimtextil. Thanks to the new publication, the people
responsible for Heimtextil can provide all those interested in coupons with a guide to their trade
fair visit, thus making it easier for them to find new suppliers and business partners. The
exhibitors’ stands listed in the Coupon Business Finder are marked by a logo on the exhibition

ZVR and BTE praise for new service offer

The new service offer for visitors to Heimtextil is very much appreciated by the Central
Association of Interior Design & Decorating Societies (Zentralverband Raum und Ausstattung
-ZVR): “The new directory is a convenient form of orientation that will be really useful for
visitors from the interior decorating business. This service once again underlines the great
importance that Heimtextil has for interior decorators”, says Henning Cronemeyer, Managing Director
of the Central Association of Interior Design & Decorating Societies. Axel Augustin, General
Manager of the German Association of the Textile Retail Trade (Bundesverband des Deutschen Textileinzelhandels e.V. – BTE) is also pleased: “Small and
medium-sized specialist retailers can only afford to invest the little time they have available at
the fair to visit the stands they want to visit. So they are glad of any assistance that will guide
them precisely to the exhibitors they are looking for.”

Three theme-specific exhibitor directories

The Coupon Business Finder will be issued, for example, to interior decorators in the
Heimtextil Insider Lounge and to bed dealers at the Bed’n Excellence welcome counter. It will also
be on display at many other locations in the exhibition grounds. Messe Frankfurt will thus publish
three theme-specific exhibitor directories for the international trade fair for home and contract
textiles: along with the new Coupon Business Finder, there will once again be a Contract Guide for
Heimtextil 2012 listing all suppliers of home textiles for the contract business. There will also
be an updated edition of the Green Directory for the fair. It provides an overview of companies and
their products that stand out because of their high ecological quality or sustainable manufacturing
methods. Apart from the above, Messe Frankfurt traditionally publishes a catalogue of all
Heimtextil exhibitors with the appropriate labels under the name of each exhibitor. This enables
the visitor to identify exhibitors that have an entry in the three theme-specific directories.
Visitors can also look for specific exhibitors at or in the
Mobile App.
