Decosit Develops for Fourth Decade

The 30th edition of Decosit, the annual decorative fabrics exhibition sponsored by Textirama, will spread its wings in terms of product coverage, moving to include window coverings, outdoor fabrics, wall coverings and an expanded emphasis on contract furnishings.

Decosit, to be held at the Brussels Expo Sept. 13-16, moves beyond its original base — a Belgian-centric upholstery fabrics fair — which continues as the centerpiece. Over the three decades, it has expanded to include a full range of decorative fabrics; in recent years it hosted a smattering of window coverings and wall coverings suppliers as part of DecoContract, which was launched as an ancillary to Decosit seven years ago.

Participants will include new exhibitors in the window coverings and wall coverings segment as well as existing exhibitors with these product offerings.

Hall 12 will become a "green" zone where the products shown will reflect outdoorsy themes, including curtains for the outdoors and upholstery for outdoor furniture.

DecoContract focuses on the hospitality segment of the contract business. Two years ago, Decosit expanded the contract concept as an international trade fair for fabrics and furnishings. In 2009 and 2010, the concept will be expanded even further, the producer said.

In addition, Decotec, another arm of the exposition, focuses on new techniques and materials, and Expofil Deco emphasizes yarns. Indigo, the showplace for textile designers, continues its long-term liaison with Decosit.
