Soon it will be that time of year again: the leading international trade shows Techtextil and Texprocess, which take place every two years, will exploit their synergy to showcase all textile innovations in one location. From 14 to 17 May 2019 Messe Frankfurt will provide international guests and exhibitors with an ideal venue to showcase their innovations as well as an exciting supporting programme and an ideal platform for knowledge acquisition and dialogue.
With ‘Sustainability at Techtextil’ and ‘Sustainability at Texprocess’, the key topic for 2019 will be sustainability. Exhibitors will have an opportunity to present their forward-looking approaches to improve social and environmental conditions along the textile value chain. A trade show guide for visitors will provide insight into specific selected exhibitors who have impressed an independent international jury with their sustainable approaches.
The spotlight will stay on sustainability throughout the supporting programme and during the many event formats. On day one of the trade show, the Techtextil Innovation Award will be presented to two companies in the sustainability category. At the Techprocess Forum, a platform for debate and knowledge sharing will be established with a focus on sustainability in the textile and fashion industries. Here, Fashionsustain Berlin will have an opportunity to take the stage for the first time.
In addition to sustainability, this year the trade shows’ highlights will include the special event Urban Living – City of the Future. Here, 12 projects in the fields of architecture, mobility, medicine and apparel, all dedicated to life in the city of the future, will be showcased on an exhibition area measuring more than 500m2.
In 2017 Techtextil and Texprocess welcomed a total of 1,789 exhibitors from 66 countries and in excess of 47,500 visitors from 114 countries. This year is likely to be even better with 1,800 exhibitors and a record number of visitors.
