Despite all efforts, organisers have been forced to cancel Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone, which were due to take place from 1-3 September 2020. The industry will now be offered a paired back alternative special format Fabric Days, a “business focused platform in Munich that concentrates on the essentials and enables the industry to work efficiently under the new conditions.”

Two weeks ago, it was confirmed that Munich Fabric Start would take place from 1-3 September, as the first trade fair for the textiles industry after the COVID-19 lockdown, whilst taking into account the applicable safety and hygiene measures. With the move to the large interim location of Messe München-Riem, and the registration of 650 exhibitors at the beginning of June, it seemed possible to implement this challenging plan despite the short time available.

The organisers say they have been working flat out to “organise a trade fair at the well-known level and thus offer the industry a perspective.”

“This hard decision is mainly based on the ongoing travel restrictions in and outside of Europe which is causing great planning uncertainty for companies and has led to cancellations by international exhibitors who had previously confirmed their participation. These issues make it impossible to realize this platform in the previously announced and well-known form,” the organisers say.

“Despite all our efforts we now had to make the difficult but unavoidable decision to cancel Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone from 1 - 3 September 2020 due to the continuing travel restrictions and further exhibitor cancellations as a result. Our priority now is to offer a special format to those exhibitors and agencies who are willing and able to present their new products on this date. With Fabric Days, we offer a business focused platform in Munich that concentrates on the essentials and enables the industry to work efficiently under the new conditions,” said Sebastian Klinder, Managing Director Munich Fabric Start.

The organisers say they are encouraged by the commitment, support and cooperation of a large group of exhibitors and long-standing partners who, despite the difficult situation, remain registered and have confirmed their participation in the fair.

“As a partner to the industry, it is part of the Munich Fabric Start team’s philosophy to now offer a platform to the exhibitors and agencies who want to keep this appointment and definitely want to exhibit in Munich. Fabric Days is a special event format for a limited number of exhibitors in four halls of the MOC, taking into account the applicable safety and hygiene measures,” Munich Fabric Start said.

“Fabric Days, which will be held from 1 - 3 September 2020 in Munich, presents a business focused format which is reduced to the essentials and designed to stabilise and support the industry in the return to business. Thus, the Munich Fabric Start team will continue to pursue the goal of providing the industry with a valuable and positive impulse.”
