Outstanding developments in the field of technical textiles will once again be honoured at Techtextil 2022, scheduled to be held in Germany from June 21 to 24. Companies and research institutes can now submit their approaches for the Innovation Award 2022, which will be presented at the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens.

Texprocess 2022, which is being held in parallel, will also present an Innovation Award in the field of new technologies and processes for processing textiles and flexible materials.

Techtextil and Texprocess 2022 already have registrations from more than 1,000 international exhibitors and twelve national pavilions.

Innovative new products are sought in the following categories: concept, technology, material, application, product, sustainability and circular economy, sustainable technology and recycling, and technology and digitalisation. New, unconventional ideas, concepts and visions are particularly welcome. The Techtextil Innovation Award supports progressive approaches and dialogue between researchers, the manufacturing industry and users. For the first time, Techtextil will also mark an outstanding development in the field of functional or performing textiles materials for fashion with the Techtextil Performance Fashion Award. Submissions are now open online. The deadline for applications is March 25, 2022, organiser Messe Frankfurt said in a press release.

"We are pleased to promote forward-looking progress in the field of technical textiles through the Techtextil Innovation Award 2022,” explained Michael Jänecke, director brand management technical textiles & textile processing. "This year, sustainability and digitalization will again be honoured in a separate category."

Entries selected by an independent international jury will be presented to international trade visitors and media representatives in a special area at Techtextil 2022. For the first time, the winners will also be presented virtually, as part of the Digital Extension of Techtextil 2022.

In total, registrations from 44 (Techtextil) and 27 countries (Texprocess) promise comprehensive international exchange with relevant top decision-makers and business partners. As the exhibiting companies have used the last two years intensively for research and development of new products, trade visitors from all over the world can look forward to a wide range of innovations and creative product solutions. For the first time, Techtextil and Texprocess 2022 will offer a Digital Extension: exhibitors and visitors can thus be found both on-site in Frankfurt and virtually, and can exchange ideas in complementary formats. These new touchpoints include: Matchmaking offers, round tables, chat function, one-to-one video conversations or digital timetables, the release added.

Techtextil will take place from June 21 to 24, 2022, parallel to Texprocess and Heimtextil Summer Special.
