Techtextil India’s hybrid edition postponed to Nov’21

Mumbai, Maharashtra

Techtextil India, a leading trade fair in India for technical textiles, nonwovens and composites, has been rescheduled to be held from November 25, 2021, to November 21, 2021, at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai. The event was originally scheduled for September 2021.

Keeping in mind the current COVID-19 situation in India and its impact on the safety, well-being and continuance of business, Messe Frankfurt India has taken this decision in consultation with industry stakeholders.

Even as companies look forward to an economic revival, the continued difficulties posed by COVID-19 make it necessary for industries to recover, plan and prepare before they can get down to business. Moving the show to November will allow additional time that is necessary to create a healthy business environment when the industry can finally come together.

A key exhibition, Techtextil India plays a critical role in highlighting solutions and innovations that are the need of the hour across twelve key application areas. With a comprehensive safety concept under the ‘MFISafeConnect’ standards, this year’s Techtextil India will be the trade fair's first-ever hybrid edition and will be held as a physical expo in conjunction with its online event on the same dates.

Elaborating on working together with venue and service providers to align safety measures, Raj Manek, Executive Director and Board Member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd said that they We are glad to have the support from the industry and exhibitors whose interests are at the centre of the decision. He added that the current focus is on the well-being, safety and good health of exhibitors, visitors, employees and all stakeholders and in the coming months, the focus would be on meeting the safety imperatives and working in co-operation with venue authorities and service providers to implement a comprehensive safety concept, aligned with government guidelines.

Proving its growing importance in these critical times, technical textiles emerged as a power sector with advanced solutions in protective textiles, antiviral and air-purifying furnishing fabrics, home textile products, anti-microbial coating among others.

During the critical stages of lockdown when global trade came to a grinding halt, the medical textile industry proved its resilience in meeting the demand for protective textiles while also providing a much-needed boost to the economy. From being a primary importer of PPE kits to becoming its second-largest producer in just two months, India had exported over 20 million PPE kits and more than 40 million N-95 respirators around the globe including countries such as the US, the UK, the UAE, Slovenia and Senegal, by the end of 2020. Even in these challenging times, the industry remains future-focused and prepared to meet vital demand for med-tech, agri-tech, geo-tech, sports-tech, and infra-tech, home tech among others.
