Performance Days 2021 as a hybrid event


By  Sibylle Michel, Editor-in-Chief of Textile-Network

In compliance with the 2G-criteria, the industry will meet again at the trade fair center in Munich, 1–2 December 2021. Participating digitally is possible.

Visitors can look forward to inter-personal exchanges, intensive networking, exciting fabric innovations and various other program highlights. Performance Days is planned as a hybrid event – and also in particular, to enable those who are unable to attend the trade show the live opportunity to follow what is on offer digitally.

In Hall A6 on the grounds of the New Trade Center in Munich, trade visitors can look forward to an extensive portfolio of exhibitors showcasing their latest functional textiles and fabric innovations for the upcoming winter season, winter 2023/24. Exhibitors who are unable to present their highlights on site can also be accessed via the Performance Days Loop digital platform throughout the course of the fair. As part of the newly developed “remote booths” concept, trade visitors will for the first time also find collections from exhibitors who unfortunately cannot be in Munich in person for the trade show.


Performance Forum together with USA fair

As always, as part of the Performance Forum, a select jury of experts assembles for two days prior to the fair to exchange views on the latest fabric innovations for the winter 23/24 season. In order to ensure a more global market overview, the Performance Forum will curate highlights for the first time in conjunction with the US fair in Portland. This year’s Focus Topic will highlight “The Sustainable Future of Nylon” in cooperation with the Vaude Academy, with a specific hand-chosen selection of fabric materials. Furthermore, as part of the winter fair, the “sustain & innovate” conference on sustainability, organized in close cooperation with SAZsport, will take an in-depth look at the topic comprising all its aspects along with high-profile speakers, webinars and discussion rounds.

In addition, there will be free entrance to a program of expert talks on the first day of the fair on the latest developments in the market, on current color trends and much more.

Updated safety and hygiene concept

Only visitors who are vaccinated or recovered (“2G-criteria”) may enter on the fairgrounds. The evidence will be scanned before entering the fairgrounds on both days.

Wearing a mouth and nose cover (FFP2 mask) is mandatory in all indoor areas. (Exception: Food Court and outside)

An essential part of the hygiene concept is the minimum distance of 1,5 meters between persons through the entire fairgrounds.
