Performance. Function. Future.

Always a step ahead - A sector in the fast lane

A totally inspiring and exciting time is dawning for technical textiles and nonwovens – and will be on show from 21 to 24 June 2022 at the next leading international Techtextil trade fair.

Taking the theme of BEYOND INNOVATION, the next edition of the fair goes far beyond simply showcasing innovative materials and technologies – everything at the show is interwoven with ecology, social responsibility, new areas of application and solutions for the textile industry.

Techtextil has established itself as the most important trade fair for experts and decision makers from allover the world. It is home to the entire spectrum of technical textiles, functional apparel textiles and textile technologies. Here you will get closer to international buyers, managers and experts than anywhere else.

The sector is growing and with it the demand for future-oriented materials. With the theme of “Sustainability at Techtextil”, the fair highlights the sustainability credentials of its exhibitors and opens up an area with huge potential. Because of the growth in the sector, we are changing sides for the first time and moving the fair to the Western Section of Messe Frankfurt. In this way, we can meet requests from exhibitors for more space and create even more transparency for visitors. This will also mean more contacts at your exhibition stand.

Benefit from the unique profile of the fair to make high-calibre international contacts at your stand, gain new customers and open up new fields of application and markets.

Sustainability at Techtextil


Techtextil highlights the sustainability credentials of its exhibitors

Many companies are already working sustainably in a wide range of areas, e.g. with the use of unconventional fibres, recycled polyester, bio-based high-tech textiles, water-saving dyeing and finishing processes, closed-loop recycling as well as functional and workclothing manufactured without solvents and binders.

The theme of ‘Sustainability at Techtextil’ focuses on exhibitors‘ sustainability concepts. You can submit your concepts together with evidence of activities relating to sustainability before the fair starts. An independent, international jury of experts will evaluate all submissions on the basis of recognised national and international sustainability marks. Interested visitors can find these companies in a separate exhibitor directory.
