Pivot for Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas

Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas will change their event cycle and shift permanently to odd years after the 2022 editions.

Last year, the two co-located shows postponed their 2020 editions due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The largest co-located event for technical textiles, nonwovens, machinery, sewn products, technology and equipment in the Americas will next be held May 17-19, 2022 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Beyond 2022, however, due to a shift of parent shows Techtextil and Texprocess Frankfurt to an even-year cycle, the North American editions will also undergo a cycle change, with the subsequent events scheduled for May 10-13, 2023 in Atlanta, and remaining in the odd year thereafter.

“The shift in cycle for Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas may take some getting used to but given the changes being made in Frankfurt in response to the pandemic, we must act with the best interest of the industry in mind.,” said Kristy Meade, group show director at Messe Frankfurt North America. “As the premier events for the textile and sewn products industries, we know that many companies rely on a presence at our shows for global exposure and hosting the Frankfurt and North American events within the same calendar year would make it hard, if not impossible, for many companies to participate in both. The last thing we want to do is limit our customers’ ability to do business.”

This cycle change will also affect Techtextil North America’s standalone event, which will switch to an even-year cycle starting in 2024. The next edition will take place August 23-25, 2021 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
