Munich Fabric Start Exhibitions GmbH is securing a strategically important date in the second half of July from summer 2023 and is bringing its main events forward by six weeks.

Specifically, Munich Fabric Start will take place for the first time on its new date from 18 to 20 July 2023. The location will remain the MOC Munich. Bluezone, Keyhouse and The Source on the Zenith grounds will be staged as two-day events: 18 and 19 July 2023.

“With the solution that has now been found, we are convinced that we can provide an answer to the most pressing questions of the industry,” says Sebastian Klinder, Managing Director of Munich Fabric Start. “The date modifications and diversifications offer all our exhibitors a wide variety of opportunities to react in a targeted manner to new needs and changes in the market.”

View Premium Selection

From summer 2023, View will continue to take place twice a year, but with a new concept: for the first time as reView Autumn.Winter 24/25 on 5 and 6 September 2023 after Munich Fabric Start and once as preView Spring.Summer 25 on 28 and 29 November 2023 before Munich Fabric Start in January 2024.

The Source

Another adjustment concerns The Source: In future, the new one-stop solution for holistic fashion sourcing will be organised as a once-a-year event as part of the summer editions of Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone. New is the supplementary format “The Source Studio” during the January fair at MOC.


Keyhouse as Hub for Future Textile Innovations will take place every two days in future and is thus adapted to the rhythm of Bluezone. Bluezone and the international denim community see great potential in this step.
