With ten months still to go, Techtextil, the International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens in Frankfurt am Main from 11 to 13 June 2013, is already almost fully booked.
“Over 90% of the exhibition space occupied in 2011 has been reserved; 86% has actually been firmly booked. Never before have we had such a good result at such an early stage”, says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies.
According to the organisers Messe Frankfurt, the particularly encouraging thing is that many companies want to enlarge their exhibition stands and that more than 10% of registrations come either from exhibitors who did not take part in 2011 or first-time exhibitors. “Naturally, companies are still welcome to register and potential exhibitors should contact the Techtextil Team without delay,” organisers say.
Registrations have already been received for national pavilions from Belgium, China, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Taiwan, the Czech Republic and the USA and pavilions from Great Britain, India, Canada and Russia are under discussion.
Next year’s Techtextil will once again attract an international audience of trade visitors from all parts of the market for technical textiles. In 2011, almost 25,000 visitors from 96 countries made their way to Frankfurt to discover the latest products, services and ideas being presented by around 1200 international exhibitors.
“The key to the success of Techtextil is to be found in the interdisciplinary nature of the product groups and areas of application, which also offers innovative solutions and highly promising customers to sectors with no obvious links to the textile business, e.g., automobile and aircraft construction, personal protection, etc,” organisers said in a statement.
The range of products to be seen at the exhibition will as usual be supplemented by a comprehensive symposium programme. To be held in the Congress Centre Messe Frankfurt, the Techtextil and Avantex Symposiums offer all exhibitors and visitors a preview of the latest trends and developments in the sector.
Techtextil will be held concurrently at Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre with Texprocess, Leading International Trade Fair for Processing Textile and Flexible Materials, from 10 to 13 June 2013.
