Texcare International closed its doors after setting a new record on 4 June 2008. Altogether, 15,500 trade visitors from 80 countries made their way to Frankfurt am Main to see the wide range of products and services being shown by the 257 exhibitors – an increase of 17 percent compared to the last event in 2004 (13,330 visitors). Over one in two of all visitors came from outside Germany, which boosted the level of internationality from 46 to 52 percent.

The top five foreign visitor nations were Italy, Belgium, France, The Netherlands and Great Britain. Particularly large increases in visitor numbers were registered from East European countries, such as Russia, Poland and the Czech Republic, as well as from the USA.

"Texcare International has further expanded its undisputed position as the world's leading trade fair for modern textile care. More exhibitors, eleven percent more exhibition space and an increase of 17 percent in the number of visitors provide impressive evidence of the global significance of this event", said Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt.

85 percent of exhibitors said they had achieved their objectives for the fair. This was to be seen in the full order books, the numerous new business contacts made and the fact that over two thirds of visitors were the owners or top managers of their companies.

257 manufacturers (156 from abroad), including all international market leaders such as Kannegiesser, the Jensen Group, Lavatec, Pellerin Milnor, Alliance, Renzacci, Girbau, Multimatic ilsa, Miele and Ecolab, presented the complete range of modern textile-care products and services from laundry and dry-cleaning machines, via logistics and transport and finishing and ironing equipment, to linen hire and research.
