Functional fibres in Frankfurt: the 17th Techtextil, a leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens, and the 4th Texprocess, which focuses on the processing of textile and flexible materials, will show just how flexibly textiles can be used and processed from 9 to 12 May 2017. The registration process for the show has now begun. According to the organisers at Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH, extending the duration of the fairs from three to four days was a success last year and is being retained. At the request of the exhibitors, however, the sequence of days has changed and the two fairs will now be held from Tuesday to Friday. Registrations are now possible.

One of the focal points of Techtextil 2017 will be functional textiles and nonwovens, from smart textiles, via wearables, to textile products for sport, medicine or hazard protection. With the Techtextil Symposium, the Techtextil Innovation Award and the ‘Textile Structure for New Building’ competition for students, Techtextil will once again be distinguished by a comprehensive complementary programme of events with expert lectures and discussions, as well as insights into spectacular ideas and technical innovations in the sector.

“Functional textiles are already an everyday part of modern life. Finished with supplementary functions, these smart textiles are conquering a wide range of applications from automobile manufacturing to medicine. Techtextil and Texprocess 2017 are a must for textile manufacturers, users and processors who want to find out about the latest international developments and solutions in the field of intelligent textiles”, says Olaf Schmidt, vice president Textiles & Textile Technologie at Messe Frankfurt.
