It’s official. From 9 to 13 November 2024, manufacturers of laundry and drycleaning technology will once again meet in person with textile-care companies at the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre for Texcare International after Messe Frankfurt and its partners – VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies and the German Textile Cleaning Association – agreed on this date.
Every four years, textile service companies, laundries and drycleaners from all over the world come to Frankfurt for Texcare International. The focus is on innovations in the industry and on networking and exchanges with business partners. Due to the pandemic, the trade fair had to be suspended altogether in 2020/2021.
Johannes Schmid-Wiedersheim (pictured), director of Texcare International, explained: "There were two decisive reasons for choosing the new date. On the one hand, it fits very well into the international trade fair calendar. On the other hand, it was favoured by exhibitors and visitors because it is during the low season for the tourism industry, when most investments are made. We are already looking forward to the next Texcare International, to real business encounters and live presentations in 2024 and are working with full energy towards the success of the event."
Technology suppliers use Texcare International to launch their innovations, which they often develop just in time for the fair. The frequency of the fair therefore also goes hand in hand with the innovation cycle of the manufacturers. The appeal of Texcare International for visitors and exhibitors alike lies in the bundling of innovations in one place, 'real' machines and intensive exchange with business partners. The product range extends from laundry and dry-cleaning technology, detergents and cleaning agents, linen and workwear to IT and logistics.
Until the next Texcare International, Messe Frankfurt is offering the industry further events for textile care in important economic regions of the world. Following the successful start in Nantes, the second Texcare Forum France will be held in Marseille on 13 December. In the United States, preparations are already in full swing for the Clean Show from 30 July to 2 August 2022. The next Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo from 11 to 13 August 2022 will be the industry meeting place for the dynamic Asian markets. Texcare Forum Russia is also scheduled for autumn 2022.
