Global textile business back in Frankfurt: Techtextil, Texprocess and Heimtextil Summer Special close with strong international presence and high visitor satisfaction
With a total of 117 participating nations, around 63,000 visitors and 2300 exhibitors, a brilliant re-launch of the international textile fairs at the Frankfurt exhibition center was achieved. Across all three events - Techtextil, Texprocess and the one-time Heimtextil Summer Special - Italy, France, Turkey, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Poland, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Portugal, Pakistan and the USA formed the top visitor nations. On all three business platforms, in addition to brisk order activity and high visitor quality and satisfaction, the concentrated positive energy of personal global encounters was particularly noticeable.
In 2022, Frankfurt is once again a favourite destination for the international event sector
The restrictions on holding events necessitated by the spread of COVID-19 were lifted at the beginning of April. Since then, it has been business as usual on the Messe Frankfurt exhibition grounds. 35 guest events with a total of 110,000 participants are taking place in May. While almost 70 percent of guest events had to be postponed or cancelled in 2021, around 140 trade fairs, congresses, concerts and other events are scheduled to be held in Messe Frankfurt locations in the second half of 2022. This is on a par with a normal six-month period before the last two challenging years.
Successful and emotional: IFFA 2022 exceeds expectations
The global meat and protein industry seized every minute of IFFA from 14 to 19 May: for intensive networking, to see innovations and to do business. Sustainable production, automated processes and digitalisation in all areas of processing, packaging and sales characterized the range of products at the booths. The high interest in alternative proteins also showed the great future and growth potential of this market. Around 50,000 visitors from 129 countries travelled to Frankfurt am Main for the leading international trade fair IFFA – Technology for Meat and Alternative Proteins.
Messe Frankfurt celebrates the 100th anniversary of its international sales partner network
This year, Messe Frankfurt looks back on 100 years of doing business through its international sales partners. The global player now has a presence in 190 countries, creating an international network with 30 subsidiaries and around 50 sales partners that is without equal in the German exhibition industry.
Joint study by Messe Frankfurt and RWTH Aachen confirms safety of air quality in trade fair halls
Over the past two years, it has been virtually impossible to hold trade fairs, even though many exhibition halls in Germany have sophisticated ventilation systems in place. The health authorities operated on the assumption that, when people breathe, they emit potentially virus-infected aerosols in the same way they emit CO2 and that this would lead to widespread infections with SARS-CoV-2.
