More than 1,477 exhibitors from 55 countries are presenting their complete spectrum of potential areas of application for textile materials and technologies at the biggest ever edition of Techtextil, which is currently underway in Germany. Over 1,054 international exhibitors are participating in the fair and 14 countries have set up their pavilions.

The companies registered as exhibitors include all international market leaders, as well as numerous companies taking part for the first time or returning after a period of absence. Moreover, several German start-ups and young companies will be presenting their new textile developments at the event, which Messe Frankfurt has organised in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy.

At the 19th Techtextil Symposium, international experts will present their latest research results, products and technologies from the fields of technical textiles, nonwovens and functional apparel fabrics in seven lecture blocks on all days of the fair. For the first time, Techtextil Symposium is cooperating with the Dornbirn Manmade Fibre Conference, which will present a special lecture block on sustainability and resource management.

The guest of honour at this year’s Techtextil is Dr Reinhold Ewald, ESA astronaut and professor for astronautics and space stations at the University of Stuttgart.

"High-tech materials based on fibres are essential in space travel when it comes to reducing the weight of space capsules. Every additional gram increases costs. Furthermore, textiles also save lives. Just think about astronaut suits. At the same time, materials that have been developed for space travel often find their way into daily life," Ewald had said during a press conference before the event.

Launched successfully at Techtextil and Texprocess 2015, the Innovative Apparel Show is witnessing the participation of universities for fashion and design from Germany, France, Italy and Portugal. The young designers show creations revolving around the subjects of textile effects, creative engineering and smart fashion. Twice a day, a fashion show in the foyer of Halls 5.1/6.1 will bring the pieces to life in a professional setting.

Techtextil will also honour new developments and innovations in the fields of technical textiles, nonwovens and functional apparel textiles with the Techtextil Innovation Award. The international TensiNet network along with Techtextil will honour the work of students and young professionals within the framework of the ‘Textile Structures for New Building’ competition, which promotes innovative and practical concepts for building with textiles or textile-reinforce materials.

Texprocess, which is being held concurrently with Techtextil, is the leading international trade fair for the garment and textile-processing industry and presents the latest machines, plant, processes and services for making up textile and flexible materials. With 312 exhibitors from 36 countries, this will also be the biggest ever edition of the fair. The focus of Texprocess is on digital textile printing and, for the first time, will include a digital textile micro-factory. (KD)
