Techtextil 2019, the global trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, and Texprocess 2019, the international trade fair for the international garment-manufacturing and textile processing industry, have announced that companies can now register to exhibit at both events, which will be held from May 14 to 17, 2019, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
Techtextil and Texprocess will present the complete spectrum of technical textiles, nonwovens, and textile processing technology. Under the motto ‘Space for Innovation’, Techtextil will present the complete spectrum of technical textiles, functional apparel textiles and textile technologies and their applications from 14 to 17 May 2019. ‘Space for Progress’ is the motto of the concurrent Texprocess, which will show the latest machines, plant, processes, and services for making up textile and flexible materials.
Functional and smart textiles for garments, the automobile industry, sport, medicine, and hazard protection are one of the focal points of the upcoming Techtextil expo. Additionally, a comprehensive complementary programme of lectures, discussions, awards, and other events will offer supplementary insights into the latest developments in the sector.
Digitalisation as a driving force of innovation in the textile industry will be one of the main themes at Texprocess. Following the success of the last event, a digital textile micro-factory will once again show a fully networked textile production chain in live operation. In addition to a production chain for garments, trade visitors will also be able to see the complete process for textiles for other areas of application, such as the automobile industry.
A magnet for visitors of both fairs will be the ‘Urban Living – City of the Future’ special show. Cities are the living space of the future. Half of the world’s population already lives in cities. Thought leaders, trend experts, and textile specialists have given consideration to which interfaces between technology and textiles will grow together in the interests of urban quality of life and where technical textiles will have a particular influence on architecture, clothing, mobility, and civilisation in the future.
