From 14-17 May 2019, international exhibitors will be presenting the entire spectrum of technical textiles, functional apparel textiles and textile technologies at Techtextil in Frankfurt am Main. Texprocess, the leading trade fair for the garment manufacturing and textile processing industry, will take place at the same time as Techtextil.

Industry experts from all over the world meet every two years at Techtextil. The trade fair's recipe for success is the overarching character of the product groups and areas of application.

At Techtextil 2017, 33,670 visitors from 104 countries came to find out about the new developments in technical textiles, functional apparel fabrics and nonwovens offered by 1477 exhibitors from 55 countries.

This year you’ll find an extensive supporting programme of lectures, showcases and competitions, offering exhibitors and visitors an insight into the latest developments in the industry, as well as additional technical inspiration.

Events include:

Urban Living – City of the Future

According to the United Nations, nearly 70% of all people are expected to be living in metropolises and megacities by 2050. This poses new challenges for living and mobility concepts, as well as food supplies and health services provision. Functional apparel, with smart functions for example, could also play an even more important role in people’s everyday lives in the future.

In collaboration with Creative #olland, the Dutch creative industries, Techtextil is dedicating an exhibition space to life in the city of the future with the Urban Living – City of the Future special event. The Techtextil and Texprocess exhibition area will be presenting examples of textile applications. In addition, an accompanying complementary programme will offer insights into the industry.

New: Techtextil Forum

The new Techtextil Forum provides an opportunity for an interactive exchange of ideas and information between exhibitors and trade visitors, as well as researchers and developers and users. Besides numerous expert lectures, the Forum programme includes discussion events from widely differing areas of application.

Techtextil Innovation Award 2019

For the 15th time, the show will be awarding the Techtextil Innovation Award for outstanding new and further developments in the field of technical textiles, nonwovens and functional apparel fabrics. Both exhibitors and non-exhibitors at Techtextil can take part in the competition.

The winners will be selected by a jury made up of experts from around the world. A special exhibition of their work will be presented to visitors and media representatives during the trade fair. The awards will be presented at the inauguration ceremony on the trade fair’s first day.

Student competition for textile architecture

On the theme of Textile Structures for New Building, Techtextil will once again be giving awards for young ideas on building with textile-based materials. This will be judged in the following categories: macro-architecture, micro-architecture, material innovation, environment and ecology, as well as composites, hybrid structures and Urban Living – City of the Future, which is the theme of the upcoming special event.

The official award ceremony for the winners will take place at Techtextil in Frankfurt am Main. The prize-winning ideas will also be presented in a special show at the fair.
