Since every hotel and restaurant is different, and there are no standard scenarios or solutions, the first edition of Texcare France, taking place from 25 to 27 November at Porte de Versailles in Paris, will give textile care professionals the opportunity to discover the latest trends, equipment and innovative services for textile care, whether you work with a service provider or have your laundry services handled in-house, said organiser Messe-Frankfurt.
In the textile care industry, estimated to represent three billion euros in France, the biennial Texcare France trade show has established itself as the benchmark and must-attend event for all professionals involved in managing laundry and its cleaning, whether they're facility managers, housekeepers or those in charge of laundry service. Customer clothing, sheets and pillowcases, staff uniforms, bathroom, table and kitchen linens, cloths – there are many textile items to maintain in an establishment.
The show will provide a unique platform to meet with suppliers in a very specific market, whether you have opted for on premises laundry (OPL), outsourcing or rental- maintenance.
It's an event that offers the opportunity to carry out a unique and customized study of the feasibility of choosing the best formula, because laundry management can be a competitive advantage if it's optimized.
This organisational challenge is indeed crucial, all the more so as hotel occupancy appears to be on the up: in the first quarter of 2023, it increased by 19.2% (or 6.9 million additional overnight stays) compared to the first quarter of 2022*, which was particularly low due to the pandemic. And we know the importance of the choice of linen and the quality of its care for your customers which has been reinforced since the Covid-19 outbreak; they are now adamant about the importance of cleanliness. Uncompromising and demanding, the clientele of hotels and restaurants look beyond these establishments as mere retail spaces, especially when it comes to rating the quality of their stay or visit.
The show will be optimising every stage from procurement to storage, clean linen to the collection of soiled linen and its treatment; staff and linen worker training and the choice available. Find all the information you need from Texcare France exhibitors and during the themed round tables.
