Visionary developments in the Sustainable Innovations forum
The Munich Fabric Start team are pursuing the goal of holistic sustainability also at FABRIC DAYS. Sustainable Innovations curator Simon Angel will show 4 projects, which have one thing in common: They use traditional crafts and materials in a new and innovative way. Pauline van Dongen, Studio Mend, Iris Bekkers and Youyang Song bring new life into classic techniques such as weaving, repairing and recycling with their developments.
“We are very grateful for the trust that we have received from both exhibitors and visitors. By organising FABRIC DAYS, we would like to set an example and offer the industry a trade fair that will be the first event of its kind on this scale. Cooperation is needed now, only together can the industry prove itself in these extraordinary times. We invite all fashion brands and design teams to discover the latest material developments during FABRIC DAYS and look forward to seeing you again in Munich.” Sebastian Klinder, Managing Director Munich Fabric Start
“We are well aware of the great responsibility and challenge that comes with organising an event in the current times. It became clear to us early on that in the future it will be about planning WITH and not AFTER Corona. In close cooperation with the authorities and Messe München, we have succeeded in implementing a series of measures that go far beyond the local and international protection requirements. So, nothing stands in the way of a professional trade fair visit in a safe environment.” Frank Junker, Creative Director Munich Fabric Start
Extensive hygiene concept for trade fair FABRIC DAYS
With the exhibition grounds, across the easily accessible halls 1 – 4 on the first floor of the MOC, the entire planning and design of the trade fair grounds has been conceived in such a way that the minimum distance of 1.5m can be maintained at all times and visitor movements can be controlled. Possible points of contact are minimized, for example, by means of appropriate aisle widths, marked entrances and exits and by making the switch to purely digital ticketing.
The FAQ on hygiene and safety as well as the regular Covid-19 updates on the FABRIC DAYS homepage provide information on the appropriate measures that have been taken. On-site, suitable media as well as specially trained personnel will inform the FABRIC DAYS visitors about the specific hygiene rules.
