By now Performance Days functional fabrics roadshow is well-established and continues its success. In comparison to the first roadshow in 2008 a plus of more then 50% of exhibitors and about twice as much visitors chose the last Perfomance Days in spring 2009 for their business. From the perspective of all parties also the new trend forum was a great success and will be continued.

The next Performance Days will be held as usual from Nov 09th -10th 2009 in Munich from Nov 12th -13th 2009 in Stockholm and from Nov 16th -17th 2009 in Verona. Only the location in Stockholm will move from Fiskartorpet to Magasin 9, the other places will be the same as in May 09. Beginning with spring 2010 Performance days roadshow will be enlarged by Annecy, the centre of French Sportswear industry, as a further location. By this it is planed to open also the french market for the trade fair.

Furthermore the concept of the roadshow will be made more flexible, regarding the single locations to make the trade fair even more suitable for exhibitors and visitors. At several request also the spring roadshow will take place earlier, in April instead of May.

The organizers of Performance Days are looking forward to a successful and interesting roadshow next November were the newest trends and collections for summer 2011 and winter 2011/2012 will be shown.

Performance Days functional fabrics roadshow was launched by the Weichert Agencies in 2008. As the first and only event of its kind it is meant to be a platform specifically for functional fabrics, yarns, finishes and accessories for the sports- and workwear market.

The semi-annual trade fair is performed as a roadshow with stops at the core-centres of European sportswear industry. These centres are Stockholm for Scandinavia, Verona for the Italian market and Munich for the German-speaking countries. From 2010 on Annecy is planed as a further location to serve France and western Swizerland.

The trade visitors are fashion designers, product managers and decision makers of almost all European sports fashion brands and manufacturers of functional apparel. The timing of the roadshow fits perfect in the time schedule of the fashion industry. Exactly at the right time in spring and autumn manufacturers find the entire portfolio of high quality materials they need for sourcing nearly in front of their factory gate, for both winter and summer season.

A calm and concentrated workshop-like atmosphere distinguishes the Performance Days from other sport- and textile trade fairs. So it is a perfect meeting point for the sportswear industry and a stage for trends and innovations.

At the unique trend forum of Performance Days one gets a well-grounded and inspiring overview over the newest materials, trends and innovations of all participating exhibitors.
