Over 12,100 trade visitors from 98 countries (2011: 10,463 trade visitors from 86 countries) plus more than 8,100 trade visitors from Techtextil (2011: 6,448 trade visitors from Techtextil) attended the leading international trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials. This also represents a significant jump in the number of Techtextil visitors going to Texprocess to find out about the products and services available there.
The growth in visitor numbers was spread evenly in domestic and international terms. More than 50 percent of trade visitors travelled to Texprocess from outside Germany. The top visitor nations after Germany included Italy, Turkey, Romania, Great Britain, France, the Russian Federation, Poland, the Czech Republic, Switzerland and Portugal. 330 exhibitors from 38 countries (3261 exhibitors from 40 countries) presented their innovations at Texprocess, which was held concurrently with Techtextil 2013, International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens, from 11 to 13 June. Altogether, 1,652 exhibitors and around 40,000 international trade visitors attended the two fairs.
For VDMA Garment and Leather Technology, the conceptual partner of Texprocess and representative on the exhibitor side, the second edition of the leading international trade fair was a great success. Director General Elgar Straub said, “In particular, the big increase in the number of visitors from outside Germany and the high level of visitor expertise generated new impulses for export-oriented companies. In fact, a surprisingly large number of orders were placed during the fair.
Thus, Texprocess has been able to expand its position as the leading international trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials. The twin pack of Texprocess and Techtextil represents a unique platform from which our manufacturers can reach both the apparel industry and technical-textile processing companies.”
The comprehensive spectrum of products at Texprocess stretches from design and cutting, via sewing, joining, embroidery and knitting, to finishing, textile printing, logistics and IT. With the ‘Source it’ procurement platform, Texprocess also offered an overview of the main sourcing countries. At 94 percent, the high degree of visitor satisfaction underscores the great quality of the range of products to be seen.
Speaking for the visitor side, Francesco Marchi, Director General of EURATEX – European Apparel and Textile Confederation – said, “Texprocess 2013 confirmed the upward trend of the concept proposed by Messe Frankfurt and turned to be a successful event despite the overall somewhat depressed economic situation faced by the industry throughout the world. Our members showed a big interest in the innovations presented in particular, but not only, in the Design, cutting room, CAD/CAM, IT and quality control area. In conclusion Texprocess was considered a big help by our members present.”
