The Munich Fabric Start Autumn/Winter 21/22 will be held from September 1-3, 2020, in Munich. This is possible, thanks to the implementation of a specially developed safety and hygiene concept, for which the international fabric trade fair will move to an interim location on the spacious exhibition grounds of Messe München-Riem in September 2020.

With the specially compiled safety and hygiene concept to reduce the risk of infection, the organisers of Munich Fabric Start can ensure compliance with the current state requirements for holding a trade fair. The organisers are referring to the statement issued by the Bavarian state government on May 26, 2020, according to which trade fairs may be held again in Bavaria from September 1 2020, taking into account the protection against infection.

The new requirements entail numerous structural, organisational, and personal measures that are necessary for smooth and safe trade fair operations. Due to the site restrictions in the MOC, Zenith Hall and the Kesselhaus, many of these necessary precautions cannot be adequately implemented in the traditional location.

The fact that the industry would like the trade fair to happen as scheduled is demonstrated by the more than 650 registrations already received from international suppliers for Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone. The organisers have drawn up a consistent concept for the occupancy of 4 halls in the interim location with a total area of 45,000m2. This will allow all exhibition areas and segments of the Munich Fabric Start, Bluezone, and Keyhouse to be represented as usual in September, according to a press release on the show.

The spacious Messe München Fairground in Riem has ground level exhibition halls, numerous spacious entrances and loading gates, as well as ground level parking spaces in the immediate vicinity of the halls, thus providing optimum conditions for the required flexible capacity and infrastructure.

“As a long standing partner of the industry, we see it as our personal mission in these challenging times to make Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone the first trade fair for the textile industry after the COVID-19 lockdown. To once again offer the fashion industry a professional platform for inspiration, networking and collection showcase in Munich,” Sebastian Klinder, managing director of Munich Fabric Start said.

“After extensive inspection, we have come to the conclusion that Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone in September 2020 will unfortunately not be able to take place in our proven and beloved location – in the MOC and on the Zenith site. This insight has presented us with several new challenges. Over the last few weeks, we have been working to secure an alternative solution. Today, we are very pleased to be able to communicate that we will hold the upcoming Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone from September 1, 2020 at the Munich-Riem fairground, thanks to our long standing partnership with Messe München. We are happy to take on the additional costs and planning associated with the move to this interim location in order to offer the industry a perspective right now,” Klinder said.
