2011 edition is the best Techtextil ever, exhibitors

The technical textiles and nonwovens sector appeared in the best light at Techtextil 2011. Product, technology and service innovations are spurring the textile industry and meeting the demand for innovations in expanding areas of application such as the automobile industry, functional textiles and civil engineering.

“Techtextil is the world's foremost venue for initiating business between manufacturers and users of technical textiles and nonwovens. And, this year, it has confirmed and expanded this leading position”, said Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt, at the close of Techtextil 2011.

“More than 24,500 visitors from 96 countries saw a host of innovations presented by 1,207 exhibitors from 50 nations – this is a great success from both the national and international standpoint. Together with the extraordinarily high degree of satisfaction on both the exhibitor and visitor sides, Techtextil 2011 was more popular than at any time for many years”, added Detlef Braun. Additional synergies for both visitors and exhibitors were generated by the Material Vision trade exhibition and conference on materials for product development, design and architecture, which was held concurrently with Techtextil. Additional attention for the range of products and services to be seen at Techtextil and Material Vision also came from visitors to Texprocess, Leading International Trade Fair for Processing Textile and Flexible Materials, held parallel to them at Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre.

The resulting synergy effects are clearly to be seen in the results of the visitor poll: 96 percent of visitors rated their visit to the fair as having been good to very good (2009: 94 percent). The echo from the exhibitor side is similar. Exhibitors of many years' standing reported that the 2011 edition was the best Techtextil ever. 90 percent of all exhibitors awarded the fair top marks in terms of goals achieved at the fair and their overall presentation (2009: 83 percent).

The worldwide significance of Techtextil is demonstrated by a further climb in the proportion of international visitors – 55 percent compared to 46 percent in 2009. After Germany, the ten best represented visitor nations in terms of visitor numbers are Italy, France, The Netherlands, Great Britain, Belgium, Switzerland, Turkey, Spain, Poland and the USA. Other top visitor nations from overseas include India, South Korea, China and Japan.

The positive mood among both exhibitors and visitors was the result of growing demand from the various areas of application and the improvement in the general economic situation, which has triggered an investment and employment upsurge in the sectors represented at Techtextil. 91 percent of visitors consider the economic situation in their sector to be good, a huge leap from 61 percent in 2009. 86 percent of exhibitors take the same view, which also represents a jump of approx. 30 percentage points over 2009 (57 percent).
