Fast track: innovations at Techtextil 2009
published in Issue 29, 2nd Quarter 2009
There were record numbers of exhibitors and visitors at the 13th edition of Techtextil, a leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens organised by Messe Frankfurt and held every two years in Frankfurt, Germany.
The popularity of the 13th edition, held on June 16-18, 2009, has been attributed to a need by companies to come up with innovative products in order to meet the challenges caused by the economic downturn.
The 2009 event represented the first time that Avantex, an international forum for innovative textiles for apparel, was integrated within Techtextil as a product group.
At previous events, Avantex had been held at the same time and in the same place as Techtextil but as a separate exhibition.
The 2009 event was also the first in which Material Vision—a trade fair and conference aimed at product developers, industrial designers and architects—was held in parallel to Techtextil.
At Material Vision—organised by Messe Frankfurt in cooperation with the German Design Council, a provider of information relating to the field of design—a range of modern materials and material technologies in the pre-production stage was presented.
