1,050 exhibitors participate in Munich Fabric Start

As many as 1,050 exhibitors at the recent Munich Fabric Start demonstrated perspectives and innovations of a future-oriented textile community. With more than 1,800 trendsetting collections for Autumn/Winter 2019/20, the three-day exhibition was supplemented by the spectacular trend and colour forums for fabrics and collection ranges by exhibiting companies.

In addition to fabrics, additionals, denim, design studios, and new development selected companies displayed their products and services related to manufacturing sourcing. Munich Fabric Start offered an exclusive programme curated by experts specifically for these areas so as to generate impulses, provide solutions, and offer opportunities for international networking.

"With View Premium Selection, with its early date in July 2018 and considerable rise in visitors, and the following Munich Fabric Start we have developed two consecutive tradefairs as a response to the early kick-off to the season. This allows us to react flexibly to scheduling needs and offer the industry a suitable platform at the right time in each case. Three well-attended days at Munich Fabric Start mean we have reached our goal and are very satisfied with the result," Sebastian Klinder, managing director at Munich Fabric Start.

"In a very accessible way Keyhouse creates the link between tradition and future, analogue and digital, between sustainable innovations and high-tech. By redesigning this segment alongside other areas such as ReSource we are creating new impulses and demonstrating future-proof process solutions. This underlines the progressiveness and our own dynamism at Munich Fabric Start," Frank Junker, creative director at Munich Fabric Start.

"This was our first time at Munich Fabric Start and already now we can say: this decision has paid off. The presence of major German brands is overwhelming here but we were also able to make many good contacts outside Germany, from Holland to Portugal," Karina Pinto Cortijo, Sales Manager at Incalpaca, one of the exhibitors.

The expert conference patterns x.0 on the digitalisation of the value chain was held for the second time now – as a cooperation between b4b GmbH and Munich Fabric Start. Visionaries and movers and shakers at international companies shed light on new perspectives for the digital future heralding in a new era of the fashion systems. The speakers included Hans Hoegstedt, CEO at Miroglio, Jan Wilmking, CEO at zLabels, Magnus Edholm, CEO at Siemens and Dr Andres Brill, managing partner at b4b GmbH.
