Numerous technology leaders register for Texprocess
Oct '10
With seven months still to go before Texprocess opens its doors in Frankfurt am Main from 24 to 27 May 2011, over 50 percent of the planned exhibition space has already been booked. Numerous international market and technology leaders have already registered for the leading trade fair for processing textiles and other flexible materials.

The organisers, Messe Frankfurt, are expecting around 500 exhibitors and 25,000 trade visitors on some 50,000 square metres of exhibition space. Texprocess will be held concurrently with Techtextil, International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens.

Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt: “The concept of Texprocess has been given a warm reception in all parts of the world market. By holding the fair parallel to Techtextil and including the 'Source it!' sourcing platform, both visitors and exhibitors can be sure of added value from their participation. Thanks to our worldwide marketing network, Texprocess is already a really international platform on the exhibitor side and covers all product groups, including IT and textile logistics.”

The Texprocess Advisory Board has been reinforced. On the exhibitor side, it has been enriched by Heiner Rupperath of Brother Internationale Industriemaschinen and Andreas Korz of Pfaff Industriesysteme und Maschinen. On the visitor side, the apparel industry is now represented not only by Adidas, Hugo Boss, Mango and Windsor but also by Marc Cain.

The interests of processors of technical textiles are in the hands of Dr. Friedrich Rau of Car Trim, so the composition of the Board also takes due account of the growing importance of textiles in technical applications. Altogether, 27 international representatives of industry, associations and institutes advise and support Messe Frankfurt in the development of the Texprocess concept.

Elgar Straub, General Manager of VDMA Garment and Leather Technology: “The development of Texprocess has been fully in line with our expectations. The response has been overwhelmingly positive everywhere. For us, Messe Frankfurt is the ideal partner. Numerous benefits, from expertise in the textile sector to the excellent connections to Frankfurt from all over the world, come together here.

The presence of expert representatives of all exhibitor and visitor groups on the fair's advisory bodies has generated a widespread spirit of optimism not only in Germany and Europe but also worldwide. Both exhibitors and visitors are looking forward to a genuine highlight that will help our sector forge ahead again.”

The range of products to be shown at Texprocess covers the entire value chain from pattern design and cutting, via processing technology, to textile processing, finishing, IT and textile logistics. The new fair will be accompanied by an extensive complementary programme including 'Network@Texprocess', the IT market place that gives software producers an inexpensive opportunity to present their products, and the 'Source it!' sourcing platform that brings together production companies and fashion labels from all over the world. In addition, there will be an awards ceremony for the Texprocess Innovation Award and a special programme to promote the interests of young people.

Techtextil, International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens, will be held parallel to Texprocess from 24 to 26 May 2011. Over 1,200 exhibitors from 45 countries form the world's foremost marketing and sourcing platform for users and manufacturers of technical textiles and nonwovens with an infinite spectrum of potential technological applications. Additionally, an extensive conference programme will illustrate the innovative nature of the sectors involved.
