Frankfurt fair trio to catalyse textile industry

Techtextil, Texprocess and the Heimtextil Summer Special will take place in Frankfurt am Main from 21st-24th June.

After the coronavirus-related break, numerous innovations await the global trade public, and the trade fairs, taking place in parallel, cover textile value chains from textile fibres and processing to the end product.

In parallel, the D2C Neonyt Lab (running from 24-26th June at Messe Frankfurt) and the public events of Frankfurt Fashion Week, will take place in the city itself.

With regard to the current safety measures, the events can take place without capacity and admission restrictions, and thus without proof of vaccination. Hygiene measures such as online ticketing, fresh air supply, generous hall planning and intensive cleaning processes will continue to be implemented.

As a framework for Messe Frankfurt's overall global range of textile trade fairs, the Texpertise Network offers valuable information on textile trade fair brands through 58 events worldwide and, as a platform for networking and exchange, constantly focuses on the latest resources and climate-friendly developments in the industry.

"The last two years have shown that as the world market leader for textile trade fairs, we have a great responsibility for the industry. In this role, we have successfully accompanied the textile industry through the crisis. Through our worldwide events, we have not only been able to maintain orientation and global business relationships in the market in uncertain times - but also our top position," explains Detlef Braun, Messe Frankfurt, at a joint press conference.

Heimtextil will be held in June as a one-off Summer Special, with 800 exhibitors already announced and participation from 47 countries.

Both the international high-volume business and the retail trade will be focus areas for the summer edition.

This summer's Heimtextil Trends 'Next Horizons' has a clear focus on sustainability and resource conservation – located at the centre of the exhibition grounds in Hall 4.0. The layout of the area is based on its Material Manifesto – only local resources, environmentally friendly or loaned materials will be used for the stand design. Visitors can expect inspiring stagings of colours, materials, curated exhibitor exhibits, lectures and DIY activities.

The Heimtextil Conference Sleep & More in Hall 3.0 offers representatives of the bedding trade, environmentally conscious retailers and decisionmakers from the hotel industry a line-up of speakers who will share the latest findings in sleep research, tracking technology and sustainability in the hotel industry.

Another highlight are the one-hour Green Tours, conducted with an independent consultant to selected exhibitors. In the Green Village in Hall 3.0. experts for sustainable textile certification will be exhibiting, while other exhibitors with sustainable products will boast stands marked with a leaf.

The show trio of Techtextil, Texprocess and the Heimtextil Summer Special will take place from 21st-24th June 2022.
