The organisers of Munich Fabric Start, a fabric trade fair, and Bluezone, international denim fair, have announced the cancellation of the event scheduled for September 1-3, 2020. This decision is based on the ongoing travel restrictions in and outside Europe causing uncertainty for companies and has led to cancellations by international exhibitors.
 
This was supposed to be the first trade fair for the textile industry after the Covid-19 lockdown taking into account the applicable safety and hygiene measures. With the move to the large interim location of Messe München-Riem and the exhibitor registrations of 650 suppliers received at the beginning of June, it was possible to implement this challenging plan despite the short time available. 
 
The organisers have been working flat out to organise a trade fair at the well-known level and thus offer the industry a perspective. But the travel restriction issues have made it impossible to realise this platform in the previously announced and well-known form. 
 
“Despite all our efforts we now had to make the difficult but unavoidable decision to cancel Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone from September 1-3, 2020 due to the continuing travel restrictions and further exhibitor cancellations as a result,” Sebastian Klinder, managing director Munich Fabric Start, said in a press release. 
 
Our priority now is to offer a special format to those exhibitors and agencies who are willing and able to present their new products on this date. With Fabric Days, we offer a business focused platform in Munich that concentrates on the essentials and enables the industry to work efficiently under the new conditions.”
 
The organisers further stated that they are encouraged by the commitment, support and cooperation of a large group of exhibitors and long-standing partners who, despite the difficult situation, remain registered and have confirmed their participation in the fair. As a partner to the industry, it is part of the Munich Fabric Start team’s philosophy to now offer a platform to the exhibitors and agencies who want to keep this appointment and definitely want to exhibit in Munich. 
 
Fabric Days is a special event format for a limited number of exhibitors in four halls of the MOC, taking into account the applicable safety and hygiene measures. Fabric Days from September 1-3, 2020 in Munich presents a business focused format which is reduced to the essentials and designed to stabilise and support the industry in the return to business.
