Performance Days trade fair, which was scheduled for 22-24 April in Munich, has been cancelled. Organisers issued the following statement a few moments ago.

“After extensive internal and external consultation and monitoring of the COVID-19 virus pandemic, the Design & Development GmbH Textile Consult, event organiser of the Performance Days trade fair for functional fabrics and materials, has made the difficult decision not held the event in Munich in April this year, nor will there be a postponement to a later date in the first half of the year, with the protection of visitors and exhibitors being the priority.

Instead, the fair is working flat out to create digital alternatives to ensure that customers, and the entire sports and textile industry can still be informed about the latest fabric trends and innovations in terms of function, fashion and sustainability for the summer 2022 season.

Although the current ban on events in Germany does not include the fair date, the fair organisers wish to emphasise that the health of exhibitors and visitors remains the top priority. Additionally, with travel bans and many restrictive measures in place to avoid the spread of the virus, holding Performance Days in April would not be justifiable towards the globally based customers also from an economic perspective.

After careful and conscientious consideration of alternatives, such as postponing the fair to a later date in the summer, and in close exchange with exhibitors and attendees, the fair team has decided, with a heavy heart, to cancel the fair. The Performance Days fair on October 28-29 2020 in Munich will take place as planned and will present the trends and innovations for winter 2022/23.

We believe that Performance Days’ visitors, exhibitors, and partners have become a true community over the years, so that we are optimistic about moving forward together successfully soon! Let us together look forward to the next fair on October 28-29 2020 in Munich.”
