Performance Apparels on Stage

We are looking for your product! Between April 23 - 26, 2024, Techtextil offers you the attractive opportunity to present smart textiles, outdoor textiles and workwear in the special show.

Performance Apparels on Stage in Hall 11.1.

This special show will highlight the performance of technical textiles as clothing and protection in special or extreme situations. Exhibitors and their development partners will thus be offered an additional opportunity to present their products as "wearables". The special show is aimed in particular at exhibitors of Techtextil as well as their development partners and clients.

The selection is made by our expert jury consisting of Wolfgang Quednau BTTA GmbH, Judith Bosch (ETP- The European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing) and Nora Kühner (Nora Kühner | fashion . design . consulting).

All exhibitors and their customers in the supply chain who make up products from our exhibitors' textiles will have the opportunity to submit information and certificates about their products. On this basis, the products will be selected at a jury meeting in March 2024.

The deadline for submission is March 8, 2024.
