The article focuses on the Heimtextil exhibition in which competition from Asian fabric suppliers and a definite overall traffic decline had significant influences on the decorative fabrics exhibitors. For some among the declining ranks of American exhibitors, business was not bad, others, however, reported significant order writing declines compared with recent years. For the two American companies with Chinese ownership, Heimtextil was an important plus. At American Century Home, the show was an opportunity to attract many new international agents, noted Jason Jiang.
