Review: Continental showcases impressive innovations and a variety of colors at EQUIP HOTEL in Paris

Full of color, comfort and digital innovation – these were the characteristics of the Continental surface specialists’ appearance at the EquipHotel international hotel trade show in Paris. From November 11 to 15, 2018, the industry audience got to experience numerous new products for contemporary surface design in the hospitality sector.

At this year’s EquipHotel, Continental’s surface specialists provided a wealth of color, exceptional seating comfort and visionary new approaches to creative surface design.

Trade visitors from the hotel industry were able to discover first-hand the winner of the 2019 German Design Award in the “Material and Surfaces” category: laif® VyP Nappa. This upholstery fabric aroused keen interest and a lot of discussion, as its breathability opens up a whole new dimension of seating comfort in the hotel, catering, conference and hospitality sectors. 

Visitors to the Continental booth were plunged into a world of color with 40 colorways of the versatile skai® Parotega NF upholstery fabric – including nine trendy new pastel colors from Continental TrendCode. The large “feel bar” invited trade show visitors to look at and feel the materials and was very well received. At EquipHotel, Continental showed itself to be a trendsetter producing great designs with its presentation of the skai® digital print collection, which demonstrates where the exciting journey through the design of hotel interior areas will take us in the future with its exceptionally expressive surface designs – a particular highlight for all those who value individual design with character.

Members of the team at the trade show were very happy with the positive discussions, new contacts and useful feedback received from the numerous visitors from France and French-speaking countries. And with that, we say merci, and we are looking forward to the next EquipHotel in 2020.
