Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas will once again be reunited for one large, co-located industry event in Atlanta from May 10-12 this year.

The platform presents a unique opportunity for visitors to gain essential industry insight, reinforce B2B connections, and become equipped with solutions needed to optimize their production.

“The disruptions caused by the pandemic have created the need for more flexible sourcing and automated technologies that allow the industry to efficiently scale up production,” says Kristy Meade, vice president of technical shows. “Development in the future-oriented fields such as 3D design, blockchain and advanced processes are providing multi-faceted insights for businesses to upgrade their shop floors, and Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas will serve as the ideal industry meeting point to see these advancements in person.

“At the 2023 edition, visitors can discover for themselves how new R&D developments and technologies are revolutionising all kinds of industries and opening doors for the industry’s diverse sourcing needs.”

New features

The organisers – Messe Frankfurt Inc., and SPESA (the Sewn Products Equipment and Suppliers of the Americas association) ­– have also confirmed the addition of several new features to the show floor for the 2023 editions of the exhibitions to elevate the exhibitor and attendee business experience. The exclusive Tech Zone is a new area dedicated to recognising ground-breaking technology that is currently being implemented in the technical textiles, nonwovens and sewn product sectors. Here, visitors will have the opportunity to meet with top innovators who will be showcasing and discussing the ways in which their products are utilising new technology to revolutionise their respective fields. Additionally, qualifying smaller companies looking to gain exposure will have the opportunity to present their products in front of thousands of attendees at the new Startup Area.

“This is a significant year for the sewn products industry to rebuild supply chains and optimise efficiency,” adds Michael McDonald, President of SPESA. “The synergy created through these co-located shows will generate a business environment that encourages the exchange of knowledge, resources and technology that not only benefits the companies that participate in the show but also strengthens our collective industries. We are extremely excited to bring the latest advancements of sewn product industry suppliers to live audiences in 2023 and provide a platform in which they can instantly engage with and respond to the information they are being presented.”


Covering trending topics and the most pressing industry challenges, the symposium alonside the shows will feature a series of educational sessions about new technologies. At these sessions, industry experts will discuss some of the most pivotal advancements being made in technical textile, nonwoven, and sewn product technology and will highlight ways in which these advancements are changing the industry landscape.

Techtextil North America’s versatile range of displays will target agriculture, construction, furniture, apparel and more.
