Visitor numbers at this year’s Texprocess which was held earlier this month rose in double digits or 10 per cent over the previous edition.

“Over 13,300 trade visitors from 94 countries, up 10 per cent over the last edition, and 7,600 visitors from the concurrent Techtextil came to Texprocess, a press release from Messe Frankfurt said.

“The proportion of international visitors among overall visitors grew to 58 percent as against 52 per cent in 2013, while the level of visitor satisfaction climbed two percentage points to 96 per cent,” it added.

Altogether, 273 exhibitors from 33 countries took part in the trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials which was held in Frankfurt am Main from May 4-7, 2015.

“This year, our exhibitors were more pleased than ever before with the quality of visitors and the contacts made with their target groups,” said Detlef Braun, member of the executive board of Messe Frankfurt.

“Trade visitors were able to discover more innovations than ever before in the fields of design, cutting, sewing, joining, knitting, embroidery, finishing and textile printing,” Braun added.

Visitor growth came primarily from outside Germany while the number of German visitors remained constant despite a railway strike lasting several days.

After Germany, the top visitor nations were Italy, Romania, Poland, Portugal, Turkey, France, UK, Spain, Bulgaria and the Russian Federation.

“There was a significant increase in the number of trade visitors from Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Egypt, Poland, Portugal and Sri Lanka,” it informed.

In addition to the garment, filtration and leather industries, many international trade visitors from the automobile and furniture manufacturing sectors came to Texprocess.

“Our visitors came from western and eastern Europe and North Africa and met our regular customers and also new customers,” Dieter Karallus, technical advisor, Juki Central Europe said.

“We showed industrial sewing machines for automotive applications, upholstery and leather, i.e. along with non-apparel also machines for jeans, shirts and underclothing,” he too added.

“Our products for upholstery and automotive applications were in particular demand and for Juki, Texprocess is one of the most important fairs in the world,” Karallus observed.

VDMA Garment and Leather Technology, the conceptual partner of Texprocess, saw the third edition of Texprocess as a positive signal for the sector.

“Texprocess has significantly increased its lead as the foremost trade fair for a highly innovative sector”, said Elgar Straub, managing director, VDMA Garment and Leather Technology.

Texprocess 2017 will be held on a new sequence of days, i.e. Tuesday to Friday at the Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre in Frankfurt am Main from May 9-12, 2017. (AR)
