From 14 to 17 May 2019, in Frankfurt am Main, Techtextil international exhibitors presented the wider spectrum of technical textiles, functional apparel textiles and textile technologies, displaying the most progressive side of textile production.

With a total of 47000 trade visitors, 2019 edition was the biggest ever held.

The central theme of the Techtextil 2019 expo was Sustainability, meant as reduction of the textile environmental impact. The European Apparel and Textile Confederation (Euratex) took a stand on this subject, inviting the European institutions to move faster towards an effective “circular fashion”.

TEX4IM was presented on this special showcase by three members of Next Technology Tecnotessile staff to the attendees, promoting project opportunities and some of the technological achievements available for the sector. The latter are the results of the mapping exercises carried out within the preparatory stage of the project, and available among TEX4IM partners.
