Organisers cancel Texcare International for 2021

Following the withdrawal of leading industry suppliers, the Advisory Council of the world’s leading textile-care fair have voted to cancel Texcare International for this year because its success can no longer be guaranteed.

In view of the corona crisis, Messe Frankfurt offered exhibitors of Texcare International the right to cancel their participation free of charge until 3 September 2021. As the months passed, the overall outlook became increasingly positive and, by the beginning of August, around 200 companies – including the important and big manufacturers from all parts of the textile-care sector – had registered to exhibit at Texcare International in Frankfurt am Main from 27 November to 1 December 2021.

Factors contributing to this included the growing pace of vaccination around the world, the categorisation of trade fairs as business events and the officially approved protection and hygiene concept of Messe Frankfurt. Nevertheless, the mood changed shortly before the cancellation deadline as leading companies decided to withdraw from the event because of uncertainties regarding the future development of the pandemic.

Kerstin Horaczek, vice president technology shows at Messe Frankfurt, took stock after the deadline: “Together with our partners, we worked untiringly to stage the Texcare International for the textile care sector in the autumn. However, a leading international trade fair with a significantly reduced spectrum on show would not do justice to participants’ expectations of the fair as the most important meeting place and innovation hub for the sector. Therefore, we have decided to accept the vote of the Advisory Council and cancel Texcare International 2021. We are extremely sorry about this. At the same time, we are grateful for the ongoing, high level of commitment demonstrated by the sector for their most important trade fair.”

Held every four years, Texcare International in Frankfurt am Main brings together suppliers of laundry and drycleaning technology with customers from the textile service, laundry and drycleaning segments. Until the next edition, Messe Frankfurt can already offer the textile care sector several events where they can do business in other important economic regions of the world including the Texcare Forum Nantes on 27 September 2021, Texcare Asia and China Laundry Expo in Shanghai from 22 to 24 December 2021 and the Clean Show in Atlanta from 30 July to 2 August 2022.
