Techtextil, the trade show for technical textiles and nonwovens, and Texprocess, the fair for processing textile and flexible materials begin from May 9-12, 2017.

“Extending the duration of the fairs from three to four days was a success last year and is being retained,” Messe Frankfurt, the organiser of the fair stated in a press release.

“At the request of the exhibitors, the sequence of days, however, has been changed and the two fairs will now be held from Tuesday to Friday,” the organiser added.

One of the focal points of Techtextil 2017 will be functional textiles and nonwovens, from smart textiles, via wearables, to textile products for sport, medicine or hazard protection.

Complimentary programs include; the Techtextil Symposium, the Techtextil Innovation Award and the 'Textile Structure for New Building' competition for students.

“These comprehensive complementary programs will have expert lectures and discussions, as well as insights into spectacular ideas and technical innovations in the sector,” Messe Frankfurt observed.

“Finished with supplementary functions, smart textiles are conquering a wide range of applications from automobile manufacturing to medicine,” Olaf Schmidt, vice president textiles & textile technologies at Messe Frankfurt said.

“Techtextil and Texprocess 2017 are a must for textile manufacturers, users and processors who want to find out about the latest international developments and solutions in the field of intelligent textiles,” he too added.

According to the organiser, after three editions, Texprocess has become firmly established in the market and, next year will show, every individual stage of the textile production process up to and including finishing.

Particular emphasis will be given to digital printing for garment and functional textiles, one of the expanding technical-textile markets, and textile finishing.

Also in the spotlight is effect finishing, the process by which textiles are made particularly resistant by subjecting them to a special surface treatment, such as a coating, or fitted with supplementary elements like LEDs.

A particular highlight and linking element between the two fairs is the second 'Innovative Apparel Show'.

Following last year's successful première with over 500 trade visitors per show, universities for fashion and design will again present visionary designs based on technical textiles on the catwalk.

At the last edition in May 2015, altogether, the two fairs welcomed 1,662 exhibitors from 54 countries and almost 42,000 trade visitors from 116 nations. (AR)
