The careful choice of season, the trade fair's fine-tuned concept, the high level of exhibited products, and the extensive business program are the factors contributing to the considerable growth of the trade fair. Heimtextil Russia is growing and strengthening its positions from year to year, which is evidenced by the following figures. In 2007 the trade fair showed a 40% growth as compared with 2006. In 2008, it will grow by another 25% and occupy two exhibition halls: Hall 11 will present fabrics for interior design and Hall 9 will gather professionals specializing in finished products - bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen textiles.

The business program of Heimtextil Russia 2008 will demonstrate ace design achievements. Russian and foreign specialists will share their know-how and tell about their projects. Special emphasis will be placed on the issue of eco-homes and hospitable sphere decoration.

The trend show in Hall 11 will become the center of visual attraction. The textile collages made of materials presented by the trade fair participants display the next season's topical colors, offer opportunities for material combinations, and model residential interiors developed on the basis of specific trends.

Home textile trends are traditionally set by Heimtextil held in January in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and continue their victorious procession during the entire year in Russia and worldwide.

For the purpose of creating the 2008/2009 Heimtextil Trends, a round table of the following five internationally-renowned design studios was held early this year bora.herke stilbüro (Germany); Carlin International (France); Stijlinstituut Amsterdam (the Netherlands); Concept Magenta (Switzerland); Alvisi e Alvisi (Italy).

The world of textile interiors has entered the times of a new reality, when it is necessary to find one's position in time and space and then set one's course for a new purism – purity and austerity of lines, textures, and colors. Those are the 2008/09 trend's basic principles, making one combine the present and the modern in the most resolute manner. The new millennium is making us realise that it is time to make some changes – new perspectives, new concepts, and new positions are waiting to be explored.

The 2008/09 season calls out for "Its time to be ... Fantastic, Original, Energetic, and Magical. At Heimtextil Russia, Claudia Herke (design studio bora.herke stilbüro) will present the new season's colors and trends within the framework of presentation lectures and a special tour of the trend show.

The trade fair's special guest, Christian Lundwall (an architect and designer and the author of the interiors of hotel chains of Rezidor Hotel Group and Best Western Premier, as well as the Radisson SAS Hotel, which is under construction in Moscow) will hold the professional seminar "Interior Design for Chain Hotels – International Experience." and present his design projects.

The Russian section of the seminar program will be presented by Svetlana Begovatova, a professor of several international universities, member of jury panels of international contests, international expert on design and fashion. Her seminars will address the industry's most relevant and vital issues. The registered subjects include as follows: Fashion Trends of 2008-2010 in Interior Design; Fashionable Textiles in Interiors.
