At the Techtextil and Texprocess, the textile and clothing industry showed its most progressive side, boosting the industry's mood in challenging times. Record numbers at the exhibitors and the highest level of internationality on the visitor side make Frankfurt once again the global marketplace of the industries.

With a total of 1,818 exhibitors from 59 countries and a total of around 47,000 trade visitors from 116 countries, the largest editions of Techtextil and Texprocess in Frankfurt closed on Friday. For four days, the Frankfurt Trade Fair Center once again became the leading international platform for users of technical textiles from a wide variety of industries as well as manufacturers of clothing, fashion, upholstered furniture and leather products.

"Over the past four days, Techtextil and Texprocess have assembled the textile world and its diverse user industries in Frankfurt. Above all, the trade fair double impressed with three aspects: so many top decision-makers, such a high level of internationality and such a high level of satisfaction among exhibitors as never before. Both exhibitors and visitors were extremely well prepared and actively used the trade fairs to promote their business in a focused manner, "says Detlef Braun, Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt.

Texprocess was all about digital solutions for the industry - from fully connected production lines in the form of microfactories and self-learning machines to cloud-based collaboration between designers, product developers, manufacturers and cross-border trade.

With "Sustainability at Techtextil and Texprocess", both fairs focused on the sustainability approaches of their exhibitors for the first time. An own fair guide guided trade fair visitors to the appropriate exhibitors. For the first time, two winners received the Techtextil Innovation Award 2019 in the Sustainability category.

The next Techtextil and Texprocess will take place from 4 to 7 May 2021.
