Messe Frankfurt launches Texprocess
May '09
Messe Frankfurt will launch Texprocess, the new leading trade fair for the sector, in Frankfurt am Main. “As the investment-goods fair for the textile and fashion industry, Texprocess will be the meeting place for over 500 exhibitors and around 25,000 visitors from all over the world”, explains Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt.

Texprocess will make its debut from 24 to 27 May 2011, and take place parallel to Techtextil, the international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, which has been well established in Frankfurt for several decades. From then on, Texprocess will continue its biennial cycle of events alongside Techtextil thus creating a potent duo of leading international trade fairs with approximately 1,700 exhibitors and around 50,000 visitors from 120 nations.

Detlef Braun: “Texprocess is an uncompromising step forward in our international strategy with which we will further extend our market leadership in the textile sphere. With over 30 events worldwide, we now cover the entire process chain from materials and fabrics, via fashions and garments, to the vital technology fair for processing and care.”

The partner of Messe Frankfurt for the new event is the Garment and Leather Technology Association of the Federation of German Machine and Plant Manufacturers (Verband Deutscher Maschinen und Anlagenbau – VDMA), which will ensure the presence of many important manufacturers including Dürkopp Adler, Expert Systemtechnik, Ferd. Schmetz, Groz-Beckert and Veit. Elgar Straub, General Manager of the VDMA Association: “Messe Frankfurt has by far the greatest expertise in organising trade fairs for the entire textile chain.

Therefore, it makes sense for the leading international trade fair for processing and automation technology for textiles and flexible materials to be held in Frankfurt am Main. Increasingly, our technology manufacturers also offer solutions for processing technical textiles and this means that holding the fair in conjunction with Techtextil in Frankfurt will result in an ideal win-win situation for exhibitors and visitors.”

In the textile sector, Messe Frankfurt is the world's market leader with a unique portfolio of fairs for home and contract textiles (Heimtextil), technical textiles (Techtextil), garment fabrics (Intertextile, Texworld, Interstoff Asia) and machinery, plant and technology for the sector (Texprocess, Texcare).

The textile and investment-goods fairs are highly international events. They cooperate with first-class partners from the fields of industry, trade, fair and exhibition business and commercial policy and their success is based on the biggest worldwide network of experts from the sectors concerned.

On around 80,000 square metres of exhibition space (gross), the new leading international trade fair, Texprocess, will present the latest machinery, plant, processes and services for manufacturing textiles and other flexible materials.
