New trade fair concept
The “mtex” textile exhibition will be expanding its range of topics beyond mobile textiles in future.
Now named “mtex+ - International Exhibition for Technical Textiles”, it will devote its attention to the entire range of high-tech textiles starting with the 6th edition (on 31 May – 2 June 2016). Using the slogan “Discover highTEXTILES+functions!”, the “mtex+” will adopt a position as a discovery exhibition for product development, process optimisation, networking and the transfer of knowledge.
“Textiles equipped with additional functions are continuing to gain ground and occupy new fields of application in almost every sector. Textiles are often lighter, easier to handle and more robust than traditional materials,” the Head of the Exhibition, Michael Kynast, explains. “It will become more and more important for product developers in particular to familiarise themselves with the latest developments in this sector, consult textile experts even during the phase of discovering ideas and draw up solutions to problems in conjunction with them.
We offer a suitable platform for this with our event, where everything is on the spot and where in-depth personal contacts are possible.” An important element in the supporting programme for the “mtex+” is the 15th Chemnitz Textile Technology Conference, which is devoted to the subject of “Textile technology as the key technology of the future”. This is being held at the trade fair site for the first time; the organisers are expecting about 300 people from Germany and abroad to attend this event on 31 May and 1 June 2016.
