Frankfurt will certainly be the place to be from June 21-24 this year, when the joint Techtextil and Texprocess exhibitions will finally be held after a full three-year break, alongside the first Heimtextil home textiles show since January 2020.

More than 1,000 registered international exhibitors from 45 countries for Techtextil and Texprocess will showcase a wide range of new developments in technical textiles and nonwovens, as well as the processing of textile and flexible materials. The shows will feature many joint stand participants, as well as twelve international country pavilions.

Strongly represented at Techtextil will be the suppliers of materials for construction, mobility, health and protection, as well as apparel for sports, medicine and functional clothing. Texprocess will feature the latest machinery, equipment and services for processing apparel and textiles, with an emphasis on CAD/CAM, cutting, textile finishing, sewing and embroidery, product preparation and finishing.

Visitors should not miss the new international start-up area, the Denim Future Factory, the Walk-in Forums and Innovation Awards with a focus on sustainability. Discussions and lectures on issues, innovative textile novelties and sustainable approaches are the focus of the leading international trade fairs.

“Since the last edition of Techtextil and Texprocess in 2019, many exhibitors have invested intensively in the research and development of their products,” said Michael Jänecke, organiser Messe Frankfurt’s director of brand management for technical textiles and textile processing. “They can now finally present their new products and innovations to customers, decision-makers and the public.


The theme of sustainability will run through all areas of the joint shows and be discussed during walk-in conferences, while the Techtextil and Texprocess Innovation Awards will also dedicate a separate category to this topic.

A special highlight of Texprocess this year is the Denim Future Factory. The denim industry is the fastest-growing market in the textile and fashion industry and has developed significantly in recent years. The special show in hall 8.0 picks up on these developments and showcases innovations in manufacturing and processing along the entire textile process chain and focuses on sustainable approaches in denim production. Visitors will be able to experience new processes in every step of production – from design, cutting, sewing, knitting and embroidery to finishing, IT and logistics.

Virtual extension

For the first time, Techtextil and Texprocess 2022 will offer a digital extension – exhibitors and visitors will be able to meet both on-site in Frankfurt and virtually, and will be able to exchange ideas in complementary formats. Exhibitor events such as web sessions can be streamed live or on-demand. Messe Frankfurt’s conferences can be streamed on demand afterwards. The digital format will be available to all visitors, journalists and exhibitors from June 13th to August 8th.

Techtextil and Texprocess will be held in halls 8, 9, 11 and 12 on the western section of Messe Frankfurt.

In addition to the Heimtextil Summer Special, the D2C Neonyt Lab progressive trend platform will also be taking place, as well as Frankfurt Fashion Week (June 20-26) around the city.

With the purchase of a single ticket, Techtextil, Texprocess and Heimtextil can all be visited at the same time.
