The "Wallpaper competence" network leveraged this year's Heimtextil trade fair to showcase its 2018 wallpaper calendar to a large audience of international guests.

More than 200 guests, including renowned representatives and decision makers of the wallpaper industry and international guests from Asia and Russia, accepted the invitation of the "Wallpaper competence" network to attend an evening event on 10 January 2018 as part of the Heimtextil trade fair. In Windows 25 in the Japan Tower, against the backdrop of spectacular panoramic views of the Frankfurt skyline, the companies affiliated with the network – Follmann, Ahlstrom-Munksjö, Kämmerer, M-Design Rudolf Meyer, Saueressig und SPGPrints – presented their new wallpaper calendar. This year's calendar explores the theme of "Ornamental diversity of the cultures" and offers a modern interpretation of the ornamental diversity of various peoples and cultures.

In a relaxed atmosphere, offering a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the fair, guests were treated to live music, cocktails and finger food as well as the opportunity to gain greater insight into the activities of the network, find out more about current trends and innovations in the wallpaper design sector and generally chat and exchange experiences.

"We are delighted that with this event, now our third, we were able to bring so many decision makers and international industry experts together and inspire them with our new wallpaper calendar", commented Mark Schmitt, Head of the Interior Decoration Business Unit at Follmann. "This confirms once again that we are on the right track with our event concept and encourages us to continue holding such events in the future."

The "Wallpaper competence" network
The "Wallpaper competence" network – comprising the companies Follmann, Ahlstrom-Munksjö, Kämmerer, M-Design Rudolf Meyer, Saueressig and SPGPrints – was founded some years ago with the ongoing aim of driving innovation forward in the wallpaper design sector. To this end, these companies jointly release an annual wallpaper calendar covering a different topic designed to demonstrate the versatility of modern wallpaper design.
