Techtextil and Texprocess postponed until 2022
It has become necessary to postpone Heimtextil, Techtextil and Texprocess as a result of the regulations and travel restrictions.
Detlef Braun, Member of the Executive Board of Messe Frankfurt:
“The coronavirus pandemic has taken centre-stage, and our plans have not escaped its impact. In light of the current situation, it would not be possible for us to satisfy our customers’ requirements for international trade fairs in April or May.”
There is currently no end to the pandemic in sight.
Events are effectively banned in Germany.
Ongoing international travel restrictions mean that it is impossible to make any trade fair plans for April or May 2021.
Now is the time when industry participants normally shift their preparations into high gear – logistics lead time that is particularly essential for exhibitors at Techtextil and Texprocess, some of whom need to bring machinery to Frankfurt for their presentations. As a result of the current situation and ongoing travel restrictions, exhibitors are faced with huge uncertainties regarding who will be allowed to be present and their customer contacts, making it extremely difficult to commit to trade fair participation. It simply is not possible at present to offer any planning certainty for investments in trade fair presentations for April or May.
New dates in 2022
As a result, Heimtextil will now take place from 11 to 14 January 2022. Techtextil and Texprocess will then take place in the second quarter of 2022.
Additional digital information and content offerings are already being planned for Heimtextil, Techtextil, Texprocess.
