Performance Days cancelled
The protection of visitors and exhibitors remains top priority. April show cancelled. Innovations for summer 2022 being presented in digital form.
Design & Development GmbH Textile Consult, event organiser of the Performance Days trade fair for functional fabrics and materials, will not be holding the event in Munich in April this year, nor will there be a postponement to a later date in the first half of the year, with the protection of visitors and exhibitors being the priority.
Instead, the fair is working flat out to create digital alternatives to ensure that customers, and the entire sports and textile industry can still be informed about the latest fabric trends and innovations in terms of function, fashion and sustainability for the summer 2022 season.
General Manager Marco Weichert:
“The safety and health of our visitors and exhibitors is given our top priority. Even though the current event ban in Bavaria only applies until April 19, we would like to help in curtailing the spread of the corona virus beyond that date. In view of the current uncertain situation, in which new short-term decisions have to be taken to protect the health of everyone, we believe it makes sense not to postpone the event to a later date either, but to send a clear signal that we are acting far-sightedly and responsibly by cancelling the trade fair for the summer 2022 kick-off.”
Nevertheless, in order to keep the industry informed on the latest trends of exhibitors, all departments are currently working flat out on digital solutions. As around 1.000 new fabrics and ingredients from exhibitors for summer 2022 have been made available to the fair headquarters, it is planned to present these trends in digital form in the next few weeks.
Senior Marketing Manager Lena Weimer:
“Even if exhibitors and visitors cannot meet personally at the fair in this currently very challenging situation, we will find ways to inform the industry about the latest products and trends.”
The next fair will take place as planned on October 28-29 2020 in Munich and will present the trends and innovations for the winter 2022/23 season!
