FRANKFURT — March 25, 2014 — From 4 to 7 May 2015 the international textile and clothing industry will be presenting itself for the third time at Texprocess, the leading international trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials. “Thanks to a clear increase in visitors and robust exhibitors’ figures, Texprocess continued to consolidate its position as a leading international trade fair in 2013. The most important decision-makers from international companies came to Frankfurt where they saw cutting-edge technologies along the entire textile value chain and returned home extremely satisfied, says Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt.
“The product line-up of Texprocess will be expanded further in 2015 and, in the same context, there will be a greater focus on the clothing industry,” Braun continues. The trade fair will be supplemented by an updated accompanying programme with expert presentations and special areas, including the procurement platform Source It.
Based on positive industry data, the leather and clothing division of VDMA (the German Engineering Federation) is confident that Texprocess will be successful again in 2015. “More than ever before Texprocess is the most important date for all international technical equipment providers wanting to present their latest machinery, plants, processes and services in the manufacturing of textiles and other flexible materials and targeting international trade visitors,” says CEO Elgar Straub. “Innovations are currently the key to success in our industry, and exhibitors and visitors are aware that Texprocess has a leading role here,” Straub continues.
Interested companies can now register at www.texprocess.com <http://www.texprocess.com/> and will benefit from the early booking rate until 25 July 2014.
Texprocess 2015 will start and end at the same time as Techtextil, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens. As a result, it will benefit from the extended range at Techtextil in the product group Functional Apparel Textiles, which will be presented in the new Hall 6.1. “Moreover, the new internal structure of the two trade fairs Texprocess and Techtextil under a single roof is already bearing fruit,” says Braun.
Texprocess covers the entire value chain of the textile processing industry, i.e. processing, the design of cuts, cutting to size, sewing, embroidery, knitting, and indeed also IT, finishing and logistics. The latest trade fair attracted 330 exhibitors and over 12,100 visitors, with a 4% increase in exhibitors and 16% more visitors than the previous event. Also, more than 8,100 Techtextil visitors decided to gather information at Texprocess, which was taking place at the same time. In all, the trade fair duo recorded 1,652 exhibitors and 40,000 international visitors.
