Techtextil Frankfurt Map


In the European textile industry, there is no international exhibition more important than Techtextil Frankfurt. This great event gives professionals the chance to experience the trends in machinery and textiles in their full breadth. It is also the perfect platform for brands to showcase their solutions in this field and generate sales leads. The exhibition has been pushing the envelope for cutting-edge innovations since 1986 and Techtextil Frankfurt fully embraces the entire value chain. The product portfolio includes functional apparel textiles, composites, coated textiles, nonwovens, laid webs, bondtec, fibers, yarns, woven fabrics, braidings, knitted fabric, technologies and processes, accessories, and research and development. Techtextil Frankfurt allows you to tap into the pulse of the industry and where it’s headed. Major topics from the last few editions circle around ideas concerning automatization and sustainability. One of the biggest barometers for future trends is, of course, the Techtextil Innovation Award.


Techtextil Frankfurt arrives in the city of Frankfurt, Germany every two years in the late spring as editions usually take place around the start of May. The international exhibition shares the stage with the related Texprocess at Messe Frankfurt for a total of four days, which also serves as the official organizer for the event. Techtextil Frankfurt is open only to trade visitors and working hours are scheduled between 09:00 am in the morning until 18:00 pm in the afternoon on the first three days and until 17:00 pm on the closing day. The good news is that you don’t need to rent a car for a quick commute. Messe Frankfurt is frequently serviced by all kinds of public transport and you are spoiled for choice. The fastest way is to catch line 4 of the metro, but you also have three suburban train lines and two tram lines.

What are people saying?

“We were thoroughly inundated on the very first day, particularly with international visitors. On top of our already high proportion of existing customers, we got lots of new contacts during the course of the trade fair,” said Dr. Günther Gradnig, Managing Director at Sattler Pro-Tex GmbH;

“The nice thing about Techtextil is that the visitors you meet are 100 percent specialists. The discussions we have had have been exclusively on a technical level – and a very high level at that. At the end of the day, this provides the foundation of good business,” said Jörg Perwitzschky, Director of Marketing at Bayern Innovativ;

“We had loads of people at our stand, who were looking for specific things, including many well-known brands such as Alpha Tauri, Mammut, North Face, and Tommy Hilfiger,” said Hendrikus van Es, Head of Protection Textiles at Schoeller Textil AG;

“Visitors came from all over the world, from the USA, Pakistan, Asia, even Columbia. We are fantastically satisfied with the show,” said Jan Cees van Baaren, Sales Manager at YKK;

Techtextil Frankfurt is an exhibition that continues to grow in size and scale, so this is reflected in the number of exhibitors. The last edition registered over 1500 exhibitors, while audience numbers broke the 52,000 mark.

Even better for those who wish to roll out their brands to international markets, the audience is 63% made of foreign nationals. The scope is certainly wide enough covering most of Europe and also extending to countries like China, USA, Pakistan, Korea, Sri Lanka, Nepal, the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Tunisia.
