The article comments on the very low number of American exhibitors at the fabric and home furnishings show Heimtex in Frankfurt, Germany and the low number of buyers at the show. The main reasons for the absence of American decorative fabric exhibitors are the changing makeup of the visitor base of the show and the here-today gone-tomorrow mentality of American exhibitors, as claimed by the author.
