Key industry event
Bringing the latest finishing technologies and trendy product innovations together under one roof, the 2018 edition of TV TecStyle Visions promises again to be a key industry event. Already long in advance, over 90 percent of the exhibition space for 2018 has been sold. The organisers, gmk Veranstaltungsservice and Stuttgart Trade Fair, had the good foresight to increase the exhibition space since the last fair to 25 thousand square metres. More than 140 prestigious manufacturers and dealers of textiles, machines and materials for textile decoration have already confirmed their attendance. Virtually all important brands in the industry will be presenting their collections in the newly erected Hall 10. In Hall 8, the focus will be on everything to do with the theme of technology. A total of 270 exhibitors and some 11,000 visitors are expected.
The theme of the upcoming TV TecStyle Visions will be ‘Celebration’. To the sound of champagne corks popping, the organisers, together with the exhibitors and visitors, will be looking back on the previous years.
The professional visitors to the 2018 edition once again expect a practical industry event with an exciting supporting programme. The exhibitors will be revealing many tips and tricks for embroidering and printing textiles. Fixed items on the programme in Stuttgart will be the ‘TecStyle Fashion Show’, the ‘Style at Work’ discovery tour, as well as the ‘TV Expert Forum’, organised by the Academy of Textile Finishing. Visitors at ‘Charlie’s Corner’, with screen printing legend Charlie Taublieb, also known as ‘Dr. Print’, can learn first-hand about the challenges of screen printing and even take home a freshly printed shirt. At the end, there’s the Golden Shirt Award, in which young, up-and-coming textile finishers have been invited to take part, giving a fresh impetus to the sector. Monetary prizes to the value of €10,000 await the winners!
