Techtextil India, India’s leading trade fair in technical textiles, non-wovens and composites, originally scheduled in September 2021, has now been postponed to November 25–27. On account of the developments around the current COVID-19 situation and its relative impact on the safety, well-being and continuance of business, Messe Frankfurt India has taken this decision in consultation with industry stakeholders. Raj Manek, Executive Director and Board Member, Messe Frankfurt Asia Holdings Ltd said, “We are glad to have the support from the industry and our exhibitors whose interests are at the centre of this decision. Exhibitors, just like organisers, are working around undefined parameters which require adequate planning flexibility. We are all committed to putting up a great show!”
Raj added, “Right now, our focus is on the well-being of our exhibitors, visitors, employees and all stakeholders and we pray for everyone to be safe and in good health. In the coming months, our efforts will be strongly focused 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.” A key exhibition in the business calendar, Techtextil India will continue its critical role in highlighting solutions and innovations that are need of the hour across twelve key application areas. With a comprehensive safety concept under the ‘MFISafeConnect’ standards, Techtextil India will open its doors from November 25 – 27, 2021 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai in first-ever hybrid edition as it will be as a physical expo in conjunction with its online event on the same dates.
