Texcare International Postponed Until Nov. 2021

FRANKFURT — Texcare International will be postponed this year, Messe Frankfurt reports, and will take place here November 27 – December 1, 2021.

“Due to the economic situation caused by the pandemic,” Messe writes, “and the travel restrictions which are to be expected, Messe Frankfurt has decided this jointly with the German Textile Cleaning Association and the VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies.”

Wolfgang Marzin, president and CEO of Messe Frankfurt says: “We want to do full justice to the expectations which the industry brings to a leading trade fair such as Texcare International. The current regulations governing major events, the continuing restrictions on global travel, and the critical economic situation, however, are calling this aim into question.”

Marzin says: “At the same time, in the interests of exhibitors and visitors, we want to avoid unnecessary costs at an early stage. None of us took this decision lightly, but we are now directing our energies to supporting the economic recovery at the right moment through the event in 2021.”

As a result of COVID-19, it had already been necessary at short notice to postpone Texcare International, originally scheduled for June 2020, to October 2020, Messe relates. How far the travel restrictions will already have been lifted this autumn is yet unclear, it adds.

Moreover, Messe notes, both the international textile-cleaning industry and the laundries are suffering from the economic consequences of the pandemic, particularly in the tourism, food-service and professional-clothing sectors.
