Functional fabrics fair 'Performance Days' from May 15
Apr '13
There is something to celebrate in May 2013 - the most important trade fair for functional fabrics, PERFORMANCE DAYS is celebrating its 10th edition! On such an occasion, it should come as no surprise that once again, a range of improvements and superlatives awaits you at this innovative trade fair. The visitors on May 15-16, 2013 can expect more exhibits, more space, and a super agenda that includes a celebration party!

PERFORMANCE DAYS is a major trade fair for functional fabrics and materials and has established itself as the absolute ‘must-attend’ event within the industry that no product manager or designer in the area of sportswear, workwear and activewear should miss. The steady increase in the numbers of exhibitors and visitors demonstrates the growing interest in this trade fair, which got a further boost from the decision two seasons ago to concentrate on the single location, Munich. Never before has the calendar for May been booked out as early as it was this year - more exhibitors than ever before are already registered. Because of these record-setting 91 exhibitors, the entire Hall 4 of the MTC will be opened to provide attractive, new exhibit space assignments.

Four exhibit halls: More space, interesting side-events

In addition to the redesigned exhibit stands with indirect lighting behind luxurious textile walls, each of the four halls provides an attractive anchor point, ideal for exciting discussions in a relaxed atmosphere.

Visitors begin their tour in Hall 1 at the check-in counter and lounge area, where they can browse the catalog and read the PERFORMANCE NEWS to get ready for the day's events. Interesting expert presentations and panel discussions will take place in Hall 2, while Munich's International School of Fashion ESMOD performs a parallel presentation of its student creations and shines a new light on the sporty new designs in this exciting field of fashion.

In Hall 3, you will find not only the usual excellent catering, but also the 4x7 meter Carrera slot car race track for action between business appointments. It accommodates up to four cars at once, with lap times are electronically measured, and the winner taking the PERFORMANCE DAYS CUP. The hit: The races are even broadcast over a beamer. In the future, the new Hall 4 will be home to the PERFORMANCE FORUM, another highlight of the trade show, which shows the major functional trends and presents the winner of the PERFORMANCE AWARDS, chosen for most outstanding innovation at the trade fair.

The Exhibitors: Functional fabrics from every textile nation

It doesn't get any more international than in the upcoming round, with exhibitors expected from 17 countries from all four corners of the world. 55.5% of the companies are based in Europe (12 countries), and 44.6 % are coming from Asia (5 countries) — from Taiwan and Japan in the East, to Portugal and UK in the west, Sweden and Norway to the North, and Spain and Turkey to the South — all of the major textile nations are represented.
