“After extensive inspection, we have come to the conclusion that Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone in September 2020 will unfortunately not be able to take place in our proven and beloved location – in the MOC and on the Zenith site.” Sebastian Klinder © Munich Fabric Start


Sebastian Klinder, Managing Director of Munich Fabric Start:

“As a long standing partner of the industry, we see it as our personal mission in these challenging times to make Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone the first trade fair for the textile industry after the Covid-19 lockdown. To once again offer the fashion industry a professional platform for inspiration, networking and collection showcase in Munich. We are happy to take on the additional costs and planning associated with the move to the interim location in order to offer the industry a perspective right now.”

Specially compiled safety and hygiene concept

This is possible thanks to the implementation of a specially developed safety and hygiene concept, for which Munich Fabric Start will move to an interim location on the spacious exhibition grounds of Messe München-Riem in September 2020. With the specially compiled safety and hygiene concept to reduce the risk of infection, the organisers can ensure compliance with the current state requirements for holding a trade fair. The organisers are referring to the statement issued by the Bavarian state government on 26 May 2020, according to which trade fairs may be held again in Bavaria from 1 September 2020, taking into account the protection against infection.

The new requirements entail numerous structural, organisational and personal measures that are necessary for smooth and safe trade fair operations. Due to the site restrictions in the MOC, Zenith Hall and the Kesselhaus, many of these necessary precautions cannot be adequately implemented in the traditional location.

Frank Junker, Creative Director Munich Fabric Start:

“These unique times require flexible thinking and actions from all of us, often resulting in bold decisions. We see this exceptional solution as the most viable way to organize a trade fair with an international audience at this scale, at this time in September. We will gladly accept the challenge of bringing our unique Munich Fabric Start flair to the Exhibition Centre in Munich-Riem.”

The fact that the industry would like the trade fair to happen as scheduled is demonstrated by the more than 650 registrations already received from international suppliers for Munich Fabric Start and Bluezone. The organisers have drawn up a consistent concept for the occupancy of four halls in the interim location with a total area of 45,000 sqm. This will allow all exhibition areas and segments of the Munich Fabric Start, Bluezone and Keyhouse to be represented as usual in September.
