Techtextil 2013 almost fully booked


With nine months still to go, Techtextil, International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens in Frankfurt am Main from June 11 to 13, is already almost fully booked. “Over 90 per cent of the exhibition space occupied in 2011 has been reserved and 86 per cent has actually been firmly booked. Never before have we had such a good result at such an early stage”, says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President – Textiles & Textile Technologies.

Particularly encouraging is that many companies want to enlarge their exhibition stands and that significantly more than 10 per cent of registrations come either from exhibitors who did not take part in 2011 or first-time exhibitors. Naturally, companies are still welcome to register.

Registrations have already been received for national pavilions from Belgium, China, France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Taiwan, the Czech Republic and the US. Pavilions from Great Britain, India, Canada and Russia are under discussion.

Next year’s Techtextil will once again attract an international audience of trade visitors from all parts of the market for technical textiles. In 2011, almost 25,000 visitors from 96 countries made their way to Frankfurt to discover the latest products, services and ideas being presented by about 1,200 international exhibitors.

The key to the success of Techtextil is to be found in the inter-disciplinary nature of the product groups and areas of application, which also offers innovative solutions and highly promising customers to sectors with no obvious links to the textile business, e.g., automobile and aircraft construction, personal protection, etc.

The range of products to be seen at the fair is supplemented by a comprehensive symposium programme. To be held in the Congress Centre Messe Frankfurt, the Techtextil and Avantex Symposiums offer all exhibitors and visitors a preview of the latest trends and developments in the sector worldwide.
