Co-located events Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas will change their event cycle and shift permanently to odd years after the 2022 editions.
Last year, the organizations postponed their 2020 editions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The largest co-located event for technical textiles, nonwovens, machinery, sewn products, technology, and equipment in the Americas is scheduled for May 17-19, 2022 in Atlanta. Beyond 2022, however, due to a shift of the events’ parent shows – Techtextil and Texprocess Frankfurt – to an even-year cycle, the North American editions will also undergo a cycle change, with the subsequent events scheduled for May 10-12, 2023 in Atlanta, and remaining in the odd year thereafter.
“The shift in the cycle for Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas may take some getting used to,” said Kristy Meade, Group Show Director – Technical Shows at Messe Frankfurt North America. “But given the changes being made in Frankfurt in response to the pandemic, we must act with the best interest of the industry in mind. As the premier events for the textile and sewn products industries, we know that many companies rely on a presence at our shows for global exposure, and we recognize that regularly hosting the Frankfurt and North American events within the same calendar year would make it hard for many companies to participate in both. The last thing we want to do is limit our customers’ ability to do business.”
