Techtextil, Texprocess and the Heimtextil Summer Special will bring the textile value chain together at the exhibition center in Frankfurt/Germany from June 21-24, 2022, and after 2 years of pandemic, will once again facilitate new international face-to-face contacts and personal business encounters. In parallel, the D2C Neonyt Lab (June 24-26, 2022) of Messe Frankfurt, and numerous public events around Frankfurt Fashion Week, organized by the City of Frankfurt, are planned to take place in the city itself.
This offers unique synergies all at one location. Exhibitors benefit from cross-selling opportunities and can establish business relationships in entirely new constellations. In one place, visitors will find global trends, products and innovations along textile value chains. The range spans from yarns and fibers to functional textiles, textile technologies and finishing processes to end products for textile furnishings, performance textiles, functional clothing and fashion. In the context of the increasing awareness of a sustainable circular economy, modern recycling processes will also be presented.
At the Techtextil, the international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, and the Texprocess, the international trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials, more than 1,100 exhibitors from 45 countries, numerous joint stand participants and 13 international pavilions will present their products to an international trade audience. The Techtextil and Texprocess highlight innovations, new processes and developments and progressive approaches with a view to sustainability. These include new production processes, materials and machinery. High investments in research and development over the past 3 years promise high innovative strength.
With 12 application areas, the Techtextil promises a wide variety and breadth of product offerings as well as innovative strength on the part of suppliers – from car manufacturers, fashion designers and medical technology specialists to industrial specialists.
At the Texprocess, international manufacturers will showcase the latest machinery, equipment, processes and technologies for garment manufacturing and textile and flexible materials – ranging from design, cutting, sewing, knitting and embroidery to finishing, IT and logistics.
The Heimtextil will be held in June as a one-time Summer Special with 800 announced exhibitors and a high level of international participation from 47 countries. Both the international high-volume business and the retail trade are focus topics of the summer edition.
»With the EU Textiles strategy now published, we have a clear roadmap ahead of us, how the European textiles industry will need to transform. The gathering in June will be an excellent occasion to present this roadmap and get the necessary input from textile companies on the ground.«
