Texcare International brings the global textile-care sector together in Frankfurt am Main every four years. The focus is on the technical innovations of the rapidly developing sector and on meeting and exchanging knowledge with business partners from all over the world. In preparation for the upcoming event, Messe Frankfurt has now conducted a detailed exhibitor and visitor survey, both nationally and internationally. The result: a clear vote for a change in the sequence of days, a dense programme on four trade fair days with a majority preference for an autumn date and more offers for learning and networking. Texcare International 2024 will therefore be held in Frankfurt am Main from Wednesday, 6 to Saturday, 9 November 2024.
Kerstin Horaczek, Vice President Technology Shows, Messe Frankfurt: "For us as organisers, it is important to have our ears to the pulse of the industry and the people Texcare serves. The talks with the industry have once again shown how important it is for them to exchange ideas with each other. We are pleased to be able to respond to the changing needs of the participants with the new timeframe and to be able to show them: It is in close cooperation, that we successfully continue to develop the event. Needless to say, this also applies to the content that will now follow."
Trend topics for 2024: this is what the industry says
The participants were also asked about the current challenges for textile care companies in the time after Covid. The automation of work processes as a measure against the shortage of skilled workers, increasing efficiency and quality, and securing energy supplies emerged as the most important topics for visitors. The reduction of emissions was also rated as relevant. The topics mentioned illustrate the influence of the global political situation on the textile care industry: high energy costs, supply shortages, the war in Ukraine and the advancing climate change represent challenges that require new solutions.
Further results and the final thematic focus of Texcare 2024 will be announced in the course of the year. The start of exhibitor registration for Texcare International will be in September 2023.
