Techtextil India’s hybrid edition postponed to Nov’21

The event originally scheduled for September 2021, has been postponed to 25 – 27 November 2021. Due to the COVID-19 situation and its impact on safety, Messe Frankfurt India decided to reschedule Techtextil India.

Mumbai, Maharashtra

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.
