This sector is blasting off into a space of rapid innovation. New business openings are emerging almost daily. It’s time to take an overview of our industry: time for Techtextil, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens.
Structured, wide-ranging and in-depth.
We offer 11 product groups covering the entire supply chain for technical textiles, nonwovens and apparel fabrics:
NEW! We have streamlined the ‘Technology, processes, accessories’ product group for a better visitor and exhibitor experience and an improved overall structure. For instance, CMT (Cutting, Making, Trimming) is now part of Texprocess in Hall 4.0.
All the latest innovations, all the up-and-coming issues, all the market leaders, all product areas. Nearly 1,400 exhibitors came to our last Techtextil from 52 countries, and presented new technologies to 28,500 trade visitors. The synergy created by the parallel Texprocess show netted an extra 5,500 visitors.
Techtextil is an interdisciplinary thinktank. Joint projects will be forged here, and experts from industry and international research will meet. This is your chance to talk to opinion leaders and influential figures, to make valuable contacts and to strengthen your business success.
