Texcare International 2016, the leading trade fair for textile care, will welcome over 310 exhibitors who will present their latest products and innovations to the international audience when the show takes place from 11-15 June, which is a 20% increase, compared to the 2012 edition.

Once again, the number of international exhibitors has risen with a good two thirds of companies coming from outside Germany, organisers report. This big increase in the number of exhibitors has been made possible by the inclusion of Hall 9 in addition to Hall 8. Thus, Texcare International will occupy 30% more exhibition space this June than in 2012.

“To open Hall 9 was the right decision because it enabled us to expand the range of products at Texcare International 2016, as well as to make the fair even more international, and thus ensure it is orientated even more towards the needs of this dynamic market,” said Ruth Lorenz, Vice President, Technology & Production, of Messe Frankfurt.

Strong growth

Particularly strong growth has taken place in the fields of textiles and accessories, as well as logistics, material flows and information technology.

The number of companies showing textile products for hire services, e.g., workwear, bed and table linen, clean-room textiles, mats, washroom hygiene, terry products and towel rolls, has climbed by 50% in comparison to 2012. Up by 34% is the number of exhibitors in the logistics, material flows and information technology product segments.

“The high degree of dynamism in these segments mirrors that of the market. Textile service is growing continuously and Industry 4.0 is making IT and innovative logistics solutions more important than ever before,” commented Ruth Lorenz.

Participation

From Europe, there has been an increase in the number of exhibitors from Italy, the Netherlands and Turkey. Nations represented for the first time on the exhibitor side are Iran, Lithuania, Pakistan, Thailand and the Ukraine. The number of German companies has also risen from 95 (2012) to 102 (2016).

The individual product segments and market leaders are distributed evenly over the two exhibition halls. Thus, the exhibitors in Hall 8.0 include Ecolab, Girbau, Jensen, Lavatec, Multimatic Ilsa and Pellerin Milnor, while the Hall 9.0 features companies like Alliance, Kannegiesser, Kreussler, Miele and Veit.

Many national and international manufacturers have opted to increase the size of their exhibition stands this year in comparison to the last Texcare four years ago, according to organisers.
