Messe Frankfurt France, the French subsidiary of the German group Messe Frankfurt, is the new owner of JET Expo, the French trade show dedicated entirely to the Professional Textile Care sector. In a statement issued on 14 December, Messe Frankfurt France confirmed that the next edition of Jet Expo will take place 19 – 21 May 2019 at Parc des Expositions Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles, Hall 7.1.
Vet'Image, the trade fair for workwear and uniform, recently included in JET Expo, is also part of this transaction.
Created in 2005 and organised every two years, the show brings together the professionals of the textile industry: dry cleaners, laundries, rental companies, on demand services, hospital centres, medical-social organisations and Horeca. It also offers industry conferences, Best Practices Awards, and newtworking opportunities through hundreds of B2B meetings.
The seventh edition (2017) welcomed 75 exhibitors with nearly 100 brands and 3,500 visitors. The show is largely focused on a national French market estimated at 3 billion euros annually but also hosts 25% of foreign exhibitors and 15% of international visitors.
