Techtextil, a leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, will be offering the Techtextil Forum, a new open format for expert contributions, on all four days of the show at the upcoming edition, from 14-17 May 2019.

With lectures, discussions and interactive sessions, the Forum provides a framework for dialogue between exhibitors and the show’s trade visitors, including researchers, developers and users involved in the field of technical textiles. Anyone interested in giving a talk at these sessions is invited to submit their suggested topics by 7 November.

“The new Techtextil Forum will be situated right in the exhibition hall. That way, both the exhibitors and the trade visitors will have the opportunity to attend lectures of their choice in between their various other appointments at the show and to participate spontaneously in discussions,” said Michael Jänecke, Director Brand Management Technical Textiles and Textile Processing at Messe Frankfurt.

“This means that we shall be able, at Techtextil, to provide additional stimulus for dialogue within the sector. In this respect, the Forum which will be free-of-charge takes the place of the Techtextil Symposium.”

The focus of the Techtextil Forum is on new developments, trends and possible areas of application for technical textiles, nonwovens and functional apparel textiles, together with technologies, processing techniques and new products.

Suggestions for topics are particularly welcome in the following areas, amongst others: major trends, sustainability, architecture, clothing, health and lifestyle, travel and transport / mobility, smart textiles, filtration, logistics, packaging and recycling. Those interested in contributing are invited to suggest talks, workshops or discussion topics. All suggestions must be submitted in English. The selection amongst the contributions will be undertaken by an international programme steering committee of experts in the field.
