Performance Days will be held in Germany, November 13 to 14, 2019. The trade fair for functional fabrics for sports and work clothing will present sustainable materials. Only sustainable materials will be presented in the curated Performance Forum. All aspects of sustainability will be explored such as recycled fibers, natural fibers from renewable resources, recycling qualities, bio-degradables or compostables, microplastics, product life cycles, water conservation, energy savings, CO2 emissions and chemicals. The current state of the art will be highlighted in all these topics as they pertain to the textile industry.
On the assumption that sustainability should be seen in all stages of the textile production process, and that sustainability is much more than simply using recycled fibers and fabrics, Performance Days will provide the impulse in various directions for sustainability research and development. The trade fair itself will be generally more sustainable. A comprehensive overall concept is designed to avoid unnecessary waste, for example, generated from disposable products. In the past the fair has stimulated exhibitors to create new developments. It now looks forward to guiding fabric manufacturers in the right direction and inspiring yet more innovation. And the show has the leverage to make a difference in the entire value chain.
