Record Number Of Exhibitor Registrations For Techtextil 2013

FRANKFURT — May 2013 — With around a month still to go before Techtextil opens its doors, the
leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens is fully booked up. Well over
1,250 exhibitors, including all of the world’s leading manufacturers, will make presentations at
Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre from 11 to 13 June 2013. “For the first time ever, Techtextil
is fully sold out. The growth in exhibitor numbers, the proportion of new exhibitors and returnees,
as well as the further increase in the level of internationality leave no doubt that Techtextil is
the world’s leading platform for the sector”, says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President, Textiles &
Textile Technologies.

At the same time, Techtextil is distinguished by growth across all countries and regions,
e.g., the number of exhibitors from Germany, Italy, India and Turkey has increased compared to the
last event in 2011. The number of pavilions has also risen by two in comparison with Techtextil
2011 and now totals 13 exhibitor nations. In addition to Belgium, China, France, Italy, Canada,
Portugal, Spain, Taiwan, the Czech Republic and the USA, Great Britain, India and Croatia are also
represented this year.

As in previous years, all key players have registered for Techtextil.The exhibitors with the
biggest exhibition stands include James Dewhurst, Elmatex, Gerber Technologies, Groz-Beckert,
Heathcoat Fabrics, Hyosung, IBENA, Johns Manville, Kordsa Global, Lenzing, Mehler Texnologies,
Oerlikon Textile, PHP Fibers, Georg Sahm, Salteks, Sandler, Sattler, Sioen, S.M.R.E., Teijin
Aramid, ThracePlastics, Toray International Europe, Trützschler Nonwovens, TWEVliesstoffwerke
Emsdetten and Wirth Fulda.

In terms of registrations by product groups, the most exhibitors are to be found in ‘woven
fabrics, laid webs, braidings, knitted fabrics’ and ‘technology, processes and accessories, ‘coated
textiles’ and ‘fibres and yarns’. Particular exhibitor interest is being shown in the new
‘functional apparel textiles’ product group. The five biggest areas of application for Techtextil
products are Indutech, Mobiltech, Buildtech, Hometech and Protech.

Thus, trade visitors can expect to find an outstanding, multi-faceted and international
spectrum of textile materials including fibres and yarns, coated textiles and textile technologies
for all different technical applications. The range of information offered at the fair is
supplemented by the Techtextil and Avantex Symposiums. The deadline for registrations at the
early-bird price is 21 May 2013.

The new exhibitor search engine has been online at since the end of April
so that all trade visitors can find out about the event, the exhibitors and the complementary
programme in advance and thus make optimum preparations for their visit to the fair.

For the second time running, Techtextil will be held concurrently with Texprocess, the
leading international trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials. Texprocess begins
on 10 June and ends together with Techtextil on 13 June. “The numerous synergistic effects
generated by holding the two fairs in parallel are of equal benefit to visitors and exhibitors”,
says Olaf Schmidt. “For example, Techtextil visitors from the apparel industry profit from the
extended range of products to be seen at Texprocess.”
