This press release was originally published by Messe Frankfurt September 23, 2020. We are sharing because it describes new digital features and changes planned for the 2021 Frankfurt trade shows.


International suppliers of technical textiles and nonwovens, as well as machines for processing textile and flexible materials, will once again get together in Frankfurt am Main for Techtextil and Texprocess from 4 to 7 May 2021. Against the background of the worldwide corona pandemic, the organisers, Messe Frankfurt, are optimistic about the prospects for the coming events.


“The current Covid-19 situation presents a number of challenges for Techtextil and Texprocess. Although we assume that the situation will have improved by the time of the coming editions, we cannot be certain. Therefore, we are planning both fairs on the basis of Messe Frankfurt’s current hygiene and safety concept. The number of registrations received and the echo from the sector give us good reason to be very positive. There is a great demand for personal interaction and the chance to see innovations in action”, says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles and Textile Technologies, Messe Frankfurt.


New communication orientation and revised hall planning

Techtextil and Texprocess will further sharpen their profiles with reoriented communication measures for the coming fairs. In the first stage, both events are being given new subtitles. From now on, Messe Frankfurt will promote Techtextil with the subtitle ‘Performance. Function. Future.’ and Texprocess with ‘Technology. Efficiency. Progress.’, thus giving greater emphasis to the dynamic and innovative nature of the sector.


There will also be changes in the location of the two fairs. In 2021, they will move to the western section of Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre for the first time and occupy Halls 8, 9, 11 and 12.
