One of the central attractions at the show, the ILA Experience Zone will feature innovative concepts in interior spaces through a design face-off between product and textile designers.

The themed exhibits will be curated by the famed jury - Lipika Sud - president of the Guild of Designers & Artists; India's foremost architect and president of Design Plus – Sonali Bhagwati; and the industry’s acclaimed fashion guru and president of Fashion Design Council of India – Sunil Sethi. Winners will be announced at the ILA Gala Night on June 20 and will get a chance to showcase their winning concept at the world’s most notable interior decor and home furnishings trade fair brands, Ambiente and Heimtextil in Germany.

Live demonstrations of different art forms such as hand work cushions, handbag stitching, hand embroidery and the art of creating small artefacts with the use of techniques such as tie-dye, batik on fabric, applique and embroidery etc will be given by a group of specially-abled children at ‘the special skills zone.’ The children have been trained by Messe Frankfurt India through employment-oriented skill development courses to help them attain financial freedom and will showcase their craft at the fair.
