Performance Days with many new highlights

The Sixth Performance Days Trade Fair/Roadshow is set to kick off in May 2011. Following the steady growth in the number of visitors to past shows and an increase of more than 60% in November 2010, the trade fair has its sights set on topping the 1000-guest mark this year. Experts will find that several changes have been made, making the event even more attractive: a new location in Munich, a new exhibition newspaper, a new bluesign area, in addition to an expanded guest speaker program.

On 12-13 May 2011, the sixth functional fabrics roadshow will be taking place in the French city of Annecy, on 16-17 May, Munich is the host city. Performance Days in the meantime, has become a must-attend event for many professional buyers and this, in turn, has lead to the renewed expansion of the exhibition fair. In May, this will include:

• A new location at Munich's MTC, which guarantees more space for more exhibitors and top quality newcomers.
• A newly created 'bluesign area', which presents all bluesign-certified exhibitors at one location for easy contact.
• A further expansion of the guest speaker series to provide even more information and featuring well-known guest speakers like Hohenstein, Sportsella, Tectera, and Textile Exchange.
• A newly developed fair newspaper to inform the professional visitors about all major trends.

The founding family Weichert and the entire trade fair team are especially proud of the new location in Munich. For reasons of space, the exhibition was moved from the former location at the Reithalle (Heßstraße) to the MTC facilities (Munich Textile Center) on Frankfurter Ring. Here, the visitor can expect nearly 2.5-times more space or, approximately 3000 square meters (previously only 1200 sqm).


Consequently, the number of exhibit stands has increased from 64 to 74 and accommodates the exhibits of top name newcomers. Among these newcomers are well-known firms like Eschler from Switzerland, GE's eVent Fabrics from the USA, Borgini Jersey Mybe from Italy and Dyntex from Austria. Furthermore, the Performance Forum established by designer Alexa Dehmel has also doubled in size from 150 sqm to 300 sqm.

The ever popular Come Together Party on the first day of the fair is part of the program at both locations and again provides a casual atmosphere so exhibitors and guests can exchange professional ideas.

Another new feature at the fair is the bluesign area. This is an area where all the bluesign-certified suppliers have been assigned neighboring exhibit stands for convenience. At the center of this section is the bluesign exhibit stand. “We now see bluesign as one of the most important standards for the textile sector and want to emphasize this status with the bluesign area.

The professional visitor should be able to tell at a glance which of our exhibitors are bluesign members,” said Marco Weichert explaining the new stand arrangement. Furthermore, the bluesign members are marked with a blue icon in the exhibitor catalog and also, the bluesign filter criteria can be applied to the exhibitor list available on our website.
