Techtextil is an international Show. Techtextil India has been a quite positive show this year, as the size, exhibitors and visitors have increased from the earlier edition. The response has been positive and Texprocess workshops had gone pretty well. It’s the first time we have introduced Texprocess in India. Techtextil was first introduced in 1986in Germany, while Texprocess was introduced in year 2011, so it’s still young.In conversation withMichael Jänecke, Director (Brand Management Technical Textiles & Textile Processing) Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH.


How was the response for the first TexprocessPavilion at Techtextil India held in India for the first time?

The response ispositive in general. The people here are open minded and accept new things. Texprocess is very well established in Frankfurt andthe United States. The co-location of the Texprocess pavilion with Techtextil India resulted in intense synergy and has created the foundation of what is to become independent co-located platforms for technical textiles and garment machinery in the coming years for India.



TexprocessPavilion at Techtextil India witnessed few exhibitors on the stand?

Since it’s a new concept in India, we had around 12 to 15 exhibitors representing approx. 30 brandsparticipating in it this time. The main focus was to present selectedbrands and to further observethe Indian Market as per their requirement and need.



In Indian Market Texprocess has a different concept and thought. What all challenges you face to introduce Texprocess in India?

The challenge we face is to reach new marketswith their processes, potential andindividual situation. Texprocess is quitepositive due to its combination with Techtextil and it has worked out because generally people know Techtextil very well.  In one single platform you can demonstrate your product, skill and technology altogether.


Texprocess & Techtextil both are different shows? One is highly technical and another is garment related? How do they complement each together?

Meanwhile Techtextil has its focus on technical textilesand textile technology regarding all the production processes until the finished roll good, whileTexprocess presents the whole range of processing technologies starting from the rolled textiles that can be used for Garments, Home Textile andTechnical Textile as well.  Both trade shows together present the entire spectrum of the textile value creation chain at one single spot.



At the last press conferenceyou mentioned about the collaboration with AEPC & CMAI, any progress?

We had a meeting with them in April. They are looking for new technologies for better results, more productivity at lower cost by saving natural resources like water, land etc. April was rather late with regard to Techtextil and Texprocess in May in Frankfurt. We will for sure continue with our talks with regard to future events.


What is the Growth of Texprocess?

We are on the first step of Texprocess in India. There is still a lot of work to be done to further develop the platform in India, to attract more visitors and exhibitors and to establish Texprocess firmly in the Indian market.

Visitor for Techtextil and Texprocess is different or the same?

Both, as the processing of textiles is independent from the industry. Users of technical textiles like car producers will find technologies for their needs as well as garment manufacturers. The benefit for all of them is that at the same time they can also find information about latest textile materials. In Germany and the USA companies like Boss, Adidas and Nike are already benefitting from the combination of Techtextil and Texprocess.


Techtextil has marked its 6thEdition. What is the growth in India as per Technical Textile is concern?

The consumption of Technical Textile in domestic market is much lowerthan other nations. So we have to identify needs. However, I think, it is not a question of information but how the Indian industry implements this knowledge into marketable products.


And there are positive developments:CoE is also doing investment in Technical Textile in Telangana,it’s purely helpful for the industry with a great contribution.


Techtextil is the International Showand a brand.Where does India rank internationally?

India stands at number fourwithin our shows. We have Germany in the lead, followed by China, United States and India respectively. Techtextil India 2017 sets with 174 exhibitors a new record. The same counts for the visitor side with over 5,400 visitors. Overall, allTechtextil showsaregrowing
