Record numbers of exhibitors & visitors represent double plus for Techtextil

The technical textile and nonwovens sector came in droves to its leading international trade fair, with numbers never before seen. "Precisely because these are times of economic uncertainty, compa-nies have been setting themselves new targets with innovative prod-ucts and areas of application – and have in part already managed to achieve them at Techtextil. Some eight percent more exhibitors and two percent more trade visitors represent a double plus for Techtextil – a fantastic outcome," summarises Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt, looking back over the days of the trade fair.

With exhibitor numbers representing 1,201 companies from 43 countries, the three-day trade fair began in positive mood from the outset. With an increase in visitor numbers to 23,300 (2007: 22,876), Techtextil ended its 13th edition today with a new record. "The interest among trade and professional visitors was enormous. And it is with great satisfaction that we see Techtextil extending its reputation as a hotbed of innovation for textile solutions in industry, research, medicine, environmental protection and many other fields of application," continues Braun.

Visitors and exhibitors alike perceived Techtextil to be an event full of intensive business activity and rated their participation in the trade fair as very good; over 80 percent of exhibitors were very satisfied with the extent to which they had achieved their targets for the fair. The level of orders and the number of new contacts at the show, in particular, were rated highly. There was a great deal of satisfaction, too, on the part of the visitors: 95 percent of them gave Techtextil top marks for the range of products and services on offer and the quality of the event.

Werner Zirnzak, Deputy Managing Director of the Association of the Yarns, Woven Fabrics and Technical Textiles Industry (Industriever-band Garne, Gewebe, Technische Textilien - IVGT) and Secretary of the European Technical Textile Club stated that as far as mem-ber companies in Germany and Europe are concerned, "all those ex-hibiting were highly satisfied with the quality and quantity of trade visi-tors and this characterised the excellent mood at the fair.”

“Although industrial customers, in particular, have reduced their warehouse stock and are tending not to rebuild it, nonetheless exhibitors recorded substantial just-in-time purchases. Even in the engineering sector, the word was that, compared to the beginning of the year, the number of orders received had risen again slightly.”

In general, the technical textiles industry foresees a pale silver lining on the horizon for the second half of 2009 and is hoping for a slight upturn from 2010 onwards. Petra Arnold, Marketing Department, Karl Mayer Textil-maschinenfabrik, confirms, "customers are visiting our stand in a mood of quiet optimism and in large numbers, particularly European ones. For us, taking part in the fairwas a conscious signal of the strength of our market and an avowal to the German textile machinery industry. The great thing is that our image/presence has also initi-ated some concrete post-fair business."
