Bundling forces at Texprocess in Frankfurt
Texprocess trade fair (May 4 to 7, 2015) managed by Messe Frankfurt is undergoing an organisational facelift
Formerly part of the “Technology & Production” Division, it has been transferred as of November 1, 2013 to the “Textiles & Textile Technologies” Division within Messe Frankfurt (D).
The leading international trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials has been organised by a separate team working parallel to Techtexil, the world’s leading fair for technical textiles and nonwovens. According to Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles and Textile Technologies and newly responsible also for Texprocess stated: The organisational restructuring will generate more synergies and strategic benefits for both fairs. This will enable Messe Frankfurt to be even more efficient, in Frankfurt as well as internationally. It will make full use of the worldwide network of over 40 textile fairs.
Both Techtextil and Texprocess will remain independent brands. Michael Jänecke who has been in charge of Techtextil since 1993will now be at the helm for the Texprocess brand. The latest Texprocess at Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre has taken place since 2011. TextileFuture has reported on the success of both fairs extensively.
The next Texprocess will be held in Frankfurt, Germany from May 4 to 7, 2015 and concurrently with Techtexil (May 5 – 7, 2015). The next Texprocess Americas will be from May 13 – 15, 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia (USA) and run parallel to Techtexil North America.
