The next edition of Texcare International, the world's most important trade fair for textile care, will focus on rapid spread of digitalisation in textile sector with the trend shifting from digital to smart, i.e, intelligent textiles communicate with intelligent machines and organise themselves. Texcare will be held in Frankfurt from June 20-24, 2020.

Texcare will highlight the basis for the smart flow of data within the textile sector as well as the use of RFID and robot technology.

"We are very pleased that our concept for expanding the fair has been so successful. At the coming event, we aim to take particular advantage of the potential for growth offered by Hall 9.0. This means we will be able to react much better to market developments, such as the growing significance of IT and logistics solutions in the sector," said Kerstin Horaczek, group show director technology of Messe Frankfurt Exhibition.

"Digitalisation is already widespread in the textile-care sector, especially when it comes to logistic processes. Accordingly, the industry will present numerous innovations that go a step further and take account of the demands of the smart factory at next June's Texcare International," said Elgar Straub, managing director of VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies.

Other facets of digitalisation include new business models between laundries or dry cleaners and their customers and / or suppliers. Online shops and apps are gaining in significance to cater for the demand for readily available, fresh and hygienic laundry. The digital-transformation process is also impacting on the fields of training and professional development with, for example, more and more e-learning units being offered. All these themes will be covered by the complementary programme of events at Texcare International.

In this connection, the Texcare Forum plays a vital role in the international transfer of knowledge and the exchange of ideas and opinions between experts and business partners. When it comes to planning the conference, Messe Frankfurt works closely together with the German Textile Cleaning Association (Deutscher Textilreinigungsverband – DTV), VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies and other organisations. Awards ceremonies, competitions and a fashion show will round off the programme of events at the trade fair.

Texcare consists of worldwide events held by Messe Frankfurt for the laundry, dry cleaning and textile services sectors. With the Clean Show in the US, Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo in Shanghai, Gulf Laundrex in Dubai and JET Expo in Paris, Messe Frankfurt holds textile-care events in all important economic regions of the world. They are rounded off by numerous conferences held under the Texcare Forum brand. (PC)
