From May 4-7, 2021 the 2 leading international trade fairs for technical textiles and nonwovens Techtextil and the processing of textile and flexible materials Texprocess will be held in Frankfurt/Germany, with a variety of changes including supplementary digital features, a comprehensive hygiene and safety concept, and a move to new exhibition halls.
Techtextil and Texprocess will further sharpen their profiles with reoriented communication measures: Techtextil with the subtitle “Performance.Function.Future.” and Texprocess with “Technology.Efficiency.Progress.”
In addition to the exhibitor presentations, the 2 fairs will once again be supplemented by a variety of events, highlight themes and special features. Apart from the physical events planned, there will be greater emphasis on complementary digital features for exhibitors and visitors. They include, for example, live streams from conferences, new digital presentation options for exhibitors and opportunities for digital matchmaking between exhibitors and visitors.
Texprocess will show the future of denim processing at the first “Denim Future Factory”, with particular emphasis being given to sustainability and the growing luxury segment for denim products. The subject of sustainability itself will also be expanded at both trade fairs by spotlighting exhibitor products and environmentally-friendly ideas that, although not certified, are boosting sustainability in the sector.
Additionally, the Techtextil and Texprocess Innovation Awards honor sustainable innovations. The program at the Techtextil will be rounded off by a new fashion show focusing on smart and functional textiles. As always, the 2 trade fairs will also provide a forum for high-grade experts in lectures, workshops and panel discussions.
For the first time in May 2021, the Techtextil and Texprocess will share the Exhibition Center with the Heimtextil, the world’s biggest trade fair for home and contract textiles. This comes about as a result of the postponement of the Heimtextil due to the current corona virus situation coupled with the associated international travel restrictions.
