Techtextil, Texprocess and Heimtextil return this summer

Techtextil, Texprocess and the Heimtextil Summer Special are taking place in Frankfurt am Main from June 21st to 24th. After two years of the pandemic, the trade fairs look forward to new international face-to-face contacts. 

As a framework for Messe Frankfurt’s overall global range of textile trade fairs,  Texpertise Network offers information on textile trade fair brands with 58 events worldwide and constantly focuses on the latest resource and climate friendly developments in the industry.

“The last two years have shown: As the world market leader for textile trade fairs, we have a great responsibility for the industry. In this role, we have successfully accompanied the textile industry through the crisis. Through our worldwide events, we have not only been able to maintain orientation and global business relationships in the market in uncertain times – but also our top position,” said Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board, Messe Frankfurt, at the joint press conference. Recent global trade show highlights ahead of the strong re-launch in Frankfurt include Texworld Evolution Paris in February 2022, Interior Lifestyle in Tokyo in June 2022, and six other “Techtextil” and “Texprocess” brand events in North America and Asia.

Since 2019, the Texpertise Network has been the link for Messe Frankfurt’s cooperation with the Conscious Fashion and Lifestyle Network and the United Nations Office for Partnerships. The common goal: to make the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) visible at all Texpertise Network textile events worldwide.

Heimtextil will be held in June as a one-time Summer Special with 800 announced exhibitors and international participation from 47 countries.

Retailer-oriented suppliers can be found specifically in advance via the exhibitor search. Exhibitors with innovative textile solutions in the field of contract textiles will also be showing their new products in the summer.

Beginning on June 21, the “Interior.Architecture.Hospitality TOURS” will be held – curated by AIT magazine, the bdia association of interior designers and the World-Architects network.

This summer’s Heimtextil Trends “Next Horizons” will focus on sustainability and resource conservation – located at the center of the exhibition grounds in Hall 4.0. The layout of the area is based on the Material Manifesto: local resources, environmentally friendly or loaned materials will be used for the stand design.

The “Heimtextil Conference Sleep & More” in Hall 3.0 offers representatives of the bedding trade, environmentally conscious retailers and decision-makers from the hotel industry a first-class line-up of speakers with, among other things, the latest findings in sleep research, tracking technology and sustainability in the hotel industry.

Another highlight are the one-hour Green Tours with an independent consultant to selected exhibitors with an exchange on the latest developments in the green segment.

From June 21 to 24, 2022, exhibitors will present their innovations in the field of technical textiles and nonwovens as well as the processing of textile and flexible materials at Techtextil and Texprocess.

Techtextil and Texprocess highlight innovations, new processes and developments and progressive approaches with a view to sustainability. These include new production processes, materials and machinery. High investments in research and development over the past three years promise high innovative strength.

At Texprocess, international manufacturers will showcase the latest machinery, equipment, processes and technologies for garment manufacturing and textile and flexible materials – ranging from design, cutting, sewing, knitting and embroidery to finishing, IT and logistics.

For the first time, a Digital Extension of the two trade fairs will be offered for visitors who cannot attend in person.

“Exhibitors and the public set high expectations for Texprocess, the leading trade fair. After a break of three years, exhibitors present their developments to an international audience and anticipate investments. Visitors are looking forward to innovative solutions for more sustainable, more flexible and also more regional production. Texprocess drives the industry forward and finally enables personal exchanges and the forging and strengthening of business relationships once again,” says Elgar Straub, Managing Director of the VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies Association.
