The international textile industry is ready to look to the future at Techtextil and Texprocess from 23 to 26 April 2024. These two leading trade fairs are hotspots for innovations, textile solutions and networking. With over 1600 exhibitors from around 50 countries, Techtextil and Texprocess reflect the extraordinary degree of innovation prevailing in the sectors.

Innovation, research, an exchange of ideas and information, inspiration and successful business transactions – these are the promises made to the international industry by Techtextil and Texprocess in Frankfurt am Main from 23 to 26 April 2024. The large number of current exhibitor registrations – over 1600 from around 50 countries – confirms the relevance of the two trade fairs for the textile sector. There, companies can look forward to meeting buyers and top decision-makers from 95 (Techtextil 2022) and 86 (Texprocess 2022) countries. In addition to familiar and high-grade formats, such as the Techtextil Innovation Award and the Texprocess Innovation Award, as well as the Techtextil Forum and the Texprocess Forum, the coming editions will be distinguished by several new special areas, e.g., the Nature Performance area and the Future Materials special show at Techtextil, and the Denim Hub and an Emerging Markets area at Texprocess.

“The sectors are undergoing a rapid process of change.

Econogy: sustainability as a driver of innovation

Sustainability and economic efficiency go together and this objective is being promoted by the global trade fairs of Messe Frankfurt – the Texpertise Network – with the reorientation of the company’s sustainable formats. This encompasses not only the overarching heading, ‘Econogy’, which links ecology and economics, but above all the standardisation of sustainable evaluation criteria for the selection of resource-saving products, processes and exhibitors. Econogy thus creates transparency and comparability across the board. To this end, Messe Frankfurt works together with independent, external sustainability experts to take account of the latest approved seals and certificates, and to integrate the Sustainable Development Goals into the checks.

The services associated with Econogy at Techtextil and Texprocess include the Econogy Finder, a directory of certified suppliers of sustainable products, which enables visitors to head straight for them.

The best way to find ideal sustainable solutions is within the framework of an exchange of ideas and information, and the Econogy Talks offer the perfect setting for this.

Led by experts in the field of sustainability, the aim of the Econogy Tours at Techtextil is to introduce visitors to selected exhibitors of sustainable products and to give them the opportunity to obtain knowledge and ideas at first hand.

Recycling is also gaining in importance with the increased relevance of sustainability and the growing appreciation and scarcity of resources, which gives it a unique potential for development and innovation. With the curated special show Recyclable Fibres & Yarns in Hall 9.1 and Recyclable Materials in Hall 12.1, Techtextil and Texprocess are putting the spotlight on future-oriented, reusable materials and recycling technologies.
