Over 47,000 visitors from 114 countries were reported to have visited the Techtextil/Texprocess 2017 exhibition held in Frankfurt from 9th -12th May 2017, this was said by the organisers to be around a 14% increase compared to the 2015 show.
Although this event showcases primarily the most innovative products in the fields of technical textiles and nonwovens, manufacturers of machinery and associated equipment to produce them also took part and reported a significant increase in interest in their latest technology. In total it was reported that 1789 companies exhibited at the four day event.
It was most gratifying to see that the textile producing sectors were actively embracing the new technologies which all bodes well for the machinery sector.
