November 30, -0001

GHENT, BE — MoOD and its sister exhibition Indigo is turning in a better result than at the same time last year, according to Patrick Geysels, Director of MoOD and Indigo. This is occurring in spite of the fact that “the fabrics industry is being challenged by major changes,” he says. For the second time, MoOD will be held at the Tour & Travel Centre in Brussels on September 6-8 as a boutique exhibition. “The best news today is that we are thrilled to give you the booking figures: 80% of the surface has already been booked for the MoOD section,” he says “Further, Indigo is booked 90%,” he says. Indigo is the presentation of surface designs that was purchased by the show organizer Textirama a couple of years ago. MoOD 2017 has several major focuses, MoOD remains the core event bringing together suppliers of upholstery, window and wall coverings for the residential and contract market. “The surface design offer at Indigo Brussels is joining MoOD seamlessly, the combination of both remains the perfect marriage,” Geysels says. He also says that 50 percent of the MoOD visitors also go to Indigo. Here are some other highlights of MoOD 2017 according to Geysels: “The Launchpad will be continued: featuring talent from all corners of the globe: startup businesses and designers. Discover the Innovation Platform sample banks in collaboration with our partners.” “New this year will be an extra focus on New Materials in the Shed 1 location. “MoOD Tech is the place to be as it comes to new technologies that reveal the future of textiles. Think of LED, digital printing, E-embroidery, conductive inks. In addition, the Digital Village Companies will be specialized in processes and/or services.”
