In view of the corona crisis earlier this year, Messe Frankfurt offered exhibitors of Texcare International the right to cancel their participation free of charge until 3 September 2021. As the months passed, the overall outlook became increasingly positive and, by the beginning of August, around 200 companies – including the important and big manufacturers from all parts of the textile-care sector – had registered to exhibit at Texcare International in Frankfurt am Main from 27 November to 1 December 2021. Factors contributing to this included the growing pace of vaccination around the world, the categorization of trade fairs as business events and the officially approved protection and hygiene concept of Messe Frankfurt. Nevertheless, the mood changed shortly before the cancellation deadline as leading companies decided to withdraw from the event because of uncertainties regarding the future development of the pandemic.
Held every four years, Texcare International in Frankfurt am Main brings together suppliers of laundry and dry-cleaning technology with customers from the textile service, laundry and dry-cleaning segments. Until the next edition, Messe Frankfurt can already offer the textile-care sector several events where they can do business in other important economic regions of the world. Thus, Russian experts from the textile-care sector will meet at Texcare Forum Russia in Moscow on 15 September. On 27 September 2021, Messe Frankfurt France is holding Texcare Forum Nantes. Still in this year, Texcare Asia & China Laundry Expo, Asia’s leading textile-care trade fair, will open its doors in Shanghai from 22 to 24 December. At the Clean Show, the biggest trade fair for textile care on the American continent and also organised by Messe Frankfurt, the industry will present its latest innovations and developments in Atlanta from 30 July to 2 August 2022.
