FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany — August 2012 — With ten months still to go, Techtextil, International
Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens in Frankfurt am Main from 11 to 13 June 2013, is
already almost fully booked. “Over 90 percent of the exhibition space occupied in 2011 has been
reserved; 86 percent 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 percent of registrations come either from exhibitors who did not take
part in 2011 or first-time exhibitors. Naturally, companies are still welcome to register and
potential exhibitors should contact the Techtextil Team without delay.
Registrations have already been received for national pavilions from Belgium, China, France,
Italy, Portugal, Spain, Taiwan, the Czech Republic and the USA. 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 the approx. 1,200 international exhibitors.
The key to the success of Techtextil is to be found in the interdisciplinary 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
Techtextil will be held concurrently at Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre with Texprocess,
Leading International Trade Fair for Processing Textile and Flexible Materials, from 10 to 13 June
2013. Further information about Techtextil can be found on the internet at www.techtextil.com.
