Performance Days trade fair is set to present new and innovative sustainable materials in the curated Performance Forum. The world’s first functional fabric trade fair for innovations, trends, and sourcing of fabrics and accessories in functional sportswear, athleisure, safety, and durability will be held on November 13-14, 2019, at Munich, Germany.

In order to give visitors an overview of all aspects of sustainability, the Focus Topic Wall is dedicated to the topic of sustainability. The 24 most sustainable fabrics as selected by the jury with explanations of all areas of sustainability will be presented at the forum. The key areas to be discussed include recycled fibres, natural fibres from renewable resources, recycling qualities, bio-degradables or compostables, microplastics, product life cycles, water conservation, energy savings, to reduce CO2 emissions, and to reduce chemicals, according to a press release on the show.

The current ‘state-of-the-art’ will be highlighted in all of these topics as they pertain to the textile industry. Further important developments will also be summarised at the Focus Topic Wall.

Performance Days, together with trade magazine SAZ Sports&Fashion, has organised the first International Sustainability Congress, to be presented in November 2019 for the first time and featuring a brand new format for the textile industry with the title ‘Sustain&Innovate’. The lectures and discussion panels on day two of the fair will focus exclusively and comprehensively on the topic of sustainability. International guest speakers will address all aspects of sustainability in lectures and discussions in the expert talk area of the exhibition hall on November 14, 2019.

“Sustainability is expected. It is our duty to act sustainably in all stages of the textile production process. Sustainability is much more than simply using recycled fibres and fabrics. Performance Days was early to showcase this on a broad scale. We have accompanied the sustainable developments in the industry for many seasons, but even more, we provided the impulse in various directions for sustainability research and development,” Marco Weichert, head of the trade fair said.

“Our focus topics featured sustainability issues early on and provided a focus to our innovative fibre and fabric producers to pursue developments in this field. Whether recycled fibres, recyclable materials, the important topics of biodegradability, water conservation or the use of natural fibres for functional fabrics – we show all possible textile aspects of sustainability for the industry,” marketing manager of the trade fair, Lena Weimer said.
