Three-quarters of the exhibition space at Europarket 2008 has already been booked, seven months ahead of the event, the organisers said.

Europarket 2008, the largest specialist trade event for the parquet flooring sector, will see visitors from across Europe descend on Kortrijk in Belgium, with 130 companies, including Design Parquet, Albers Parketgroothandel and Flexel International, from 13 countries, ranging from Italy to Luxembourg, already confirmed for the April 13-15, 2008 event.

In addition to the main show, Europarket organisers have arranged a number of fringe events, including parquet surgeries, where innovations and new trends will be discussed; fitting demonstrations, where six national teams will demonstrate their characteristic installation techniques; and the Innovation Awards Europarket 2008, where exhibitors will be able to enter their new products in order to be crowned the most innovative.

“With its sharply focused concept, international exhibitors and the many fringe events as an exciting extra on the exhibition floor, this international meeting place for the parquet sector will be unforgettable, and looks set to be even more successful than previous editions,” said Europarket 2008 organisers.
