Its tagline – Print.Produce.Promote – highlights the product spectrum on show: TV TecStyle Visions features solutions in the fields of textile decoration, promotionwear and workwear. The concurrent trade fair Wetec is synonymous with innovations in signmaking, digital printing, light advertising and digital signage whilst GiveADays showcases new ideas for promotional articles and haptic advertising.

TV TecStyle Visions – Textile finishing in all its facets

In recent years, TV TecStyle Visions has firmly strengthened its position as Europe’s leading fair for textile decoration and promotion. Its growing international appeal is reflected in the figures, with 18 percent of visitors travelling to the last event from abroad. The wide spectrum of technology and accessories for textile finishing processes is complemented with corporate fashion, promotionwear and functional workwear. The supporting programme for 2020 will feature daily fashion shows, the widely appreciated Forum and a technical show highlighting a micro-factory, realised in collaboration with the German Institutes for Textile and Fibre Research (DITF).

Digital Textile Micro Factory

Visitors in the TecCheck Area can experience, for the first time, the complete production of a polo shirt. It takes less than an hour to make the shirt in the Digital Textile Micro Factory, a digitally networked production line that starts with the 3-D design and ends with the finished product. The special show is taking place under the technical guidance of the DITF, Albstadt-Sigmaringen University and the TH Köln University of Applied Sciences. The latest products for live production are offered by reputed manufacturers and companies such as Assyst, Caddon, HP, Multi-Plot Europe, Schöller Textil, Rebstock Consulting and Zünd Systemtechnik. The production line traces an arc between soft and hardware solutions, future-orientated materials and technical expertise.
