Texcare International 2016 will open its doors on a record number of exhibitors, according to organisers Messe Frankfurt.
A total of 319 companies from 28 countries have registered to appear at this year’s trade fair, from 262 exhibitors from 26 countries in 2012.
The number of international exhibitors has risen again with more than two-thirds of companies from outside Germany. Particular growth in international exhibitor numbers comes from Italy, the Netherlands, France, Spain, Turkey, India and China. Nations represented for the first time are Iran, Lithuania, Pakistan, Thailand and the Ukraine.
For the first time, Hall 9 is being used in addition to Hall 8, which means the fair occupies 30% more exhibition space than four years ago.
Texcare International takes place at Messe Frankfurt on 11 to 15 June 2016.
