Sunny Mediterranean weather, gracious Spanish hospitality and the beautiful backdrop that is València were once again the settings for the 2023 editions of Feria Hábitat València and Home Textiles Premium by Textilhogar.

This year’s edition took place in the eight halls at Feria Valencia across 96,000 square metres of commercial exhibition space. The exhibition featured a total of 881 international companies and brands and welcomed 45,026 visitors over the course of the four-day event.

Despite the lack of a significant contribution from the kitchen sector, figures for this year’s edition of both Hábitat and Textilhogar were almost equivalent to last year’s and far exceeded those of 2019.

This year, visitors came from 80 countries, including Portugal, France, Italy, the U.S., Belgium, Germany, Lithuania, Morocco, Nigeria, the U.K., Russia and Ukraine.

“Our challenge this year was not just to grow our offering quantitatively but also to offer the professionals coming to visit the best the industry has to offer,” said Daniel Marco, director for Feria Hábitat València.  

Marco also highlighted how sectors including the “contract channel” were bigger this year, which spurred sales for exhibitors. “This is a channel that Hábitat has selected as a route to supplying new refurbishment and construction projects in sectors such as hotels, hospitality and restaurants.”

“This year,” he continued, “we confirmed the validity of the large-format model that has the power to draw an audience, surpassed the success attached to Valencia being the World Design Capital, and are making preparations for an edition in 2024 that will see the return of a major sector – kitchens – in the guise of the dedicated Espacio Cocina SICI fair”.
