Performance Days fair, held on November 28 and 29, 2018, recorded the highest number of visitors. Around 3201 visitors from 63 countries attended the functional fabric fair. The first and only event created especially for functional fabrics for sports and work clothing was relocated in its tenth year to the Messe München from the Munich M.T.C, Germany.

The move was the right decision at the right time according to the fair organisers and the exhibitors and visitors agree. The number of visitors was significantly higher than the advance forecasts. Hall C1 of the Messe München provided more floor space for about 100 new exhibitors than at the last fair in the M.T.C. Both long time exhibitors and first time exhibitors reported above average satisfaction with the progress and services at the fair. Visitors joined in sharing this positive impression, according to a press release.

Crowded aisles and boulevards reflected the fair’s attractive offers. The four boulevards hosted the Performance Forum with the Performance Wall, the Focus Topic with the Marketplace, the areas for Expert Talks and panel discussions, as well as one for catering.

The Expert Talks were once again a major attraction. Right up to the last panel discussion on the second day, not only were all seats occupied, some people were even standing in the floor. The Focus Topic ‘Water – Our Responsibility’ covered a controversial yet important subject and received a lot of praise. The main points were comprehensively explained, the most innovative fabrics displayed, and the outstanding, sustainable, and water-saving fabric was named the winner of the Eco Performance Award. The Expert Talks and panel discussions addressed these topics on the second day of the fair.

Exhibitor registrations have re-opened for the next trade fair in hall C6 at Messe München on May 8 and 9, 2019. Demand is extremely high and indications are that the spring edition is sold out by Christmas. Accordingly, Performance Days can truly claim to be the world’s leading trade fair for functional fabrics and sourcing for the sportswear and fashion industry. (GK)
