The decision to hold a summer edition this year is the result of a positive vote from the home and contract textile industry, which is longing for a re-start of personal business meetings this year. Exhibitors and buyers will also benefit from valuable synergy effects between the three international trade fair formats.

Synergy effects through parallelism

Thanks to the parallelism of the three trade fairs, national and international buyers will be able for the first time to experience global trends and innovations along large parts of the textile value chain bundled in one place – starting with fibers and yarns, through functional textiles, textile technologies and production and finishing processes, to the end product for textile interiors and recycling. “The close proximity to Techtextil and Texprocess provides Heimtextil buyers with exciting new perspectives on innovative functionalities of technical textiles or also nonwovens as well as processing technologies for the home textiles industry. Through these synergies, we create additional incentives to attract national and international buyers for the re-launch of Heimtextil in summer,” explains Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies.

Techtextil / Texprocess

Techtextil covers the entire spectrum of technical textiles, functional apparel textiles and textile technologies. The leading international trade fair provides an overview of the latest applications of high-tech textiles to make products lighter, more functional and more sustainable. In parallel, international exhibitors at Texprocess present the latest machinery, equipment, processes and services for garment manufacturing and textile and flexible materials. The leading international trade fair shows how technical textiles, apparel fabrics and flexible materials can be processed even more efficiently and sustainably. As hybrid events, both trade fairs will be supplemented by additional digital offers for exhibitors and visitors. The Heimtextil Summer Special will take place as a purely physical event.
