During this difficult and uncertain phase, the thoughts and sympathy of the entire MUNICH FABRIC START team are especially with people who live in countries without a functioning healthcare system or facing evacuation. We are aware of the impact on the global textile industry and see the great challenges our industry has to face.

As trade fair organisers, the current situation also prevents the heart of our business: bringing together people and exchanging information in the industry. We are aware of the great importance and relevance of our trade fair for manufacturers and fashion companies.

In this situation, the next meeting and exchange of ideas will become incredibly important. We want to set an example by offering a perspective and providing the textile industry a platform with optimal conditions as soon as possible. To achieve this, we remain flexible in our actions and are prepared to respond to any future developments. We are currently organising the next fair as usual and are working at full capacity to ensure that MUNICH FABRIC START in September 2020 can take place on the planned date.

The current time of isolation and social distancing affects all players in the industry which is why coming together at the fair will be immensely valuable. This is confirmed by the usual high number of registrations and positive feedback we are currently receiving. BLUEZONE is already fully booked for September 2020 and we are stunned by the great amount of trust and loyalty placed in us.

At this point in time, it is still too early to make a final statement on the execution of the trade fair. Should there be any changes, we will of course inform you as soon as possible. We are in close contact with other trade fair organizers and rely on the findings of experts and political decisions, without our own interpretations or statements on the current social and political issues.

There are still several months until our trade fair date – valuable time which can be decisive. For the moment, it means waiting for developments in the next few weeks and making decisions on this basis. At this point, we also try to put ourselves in the position of the exhibitors and visitors to find solutions which are best for all parties involved. To this end, we are currently examining various scenarios with which we can react flexibly and in a solution-oriented manner to any changes in government guidelines for events.

We look forward to hopefully welcoming you in Munich soon again. As usual, please don’t hesitate to contact us. In this special time, dialogue is particularly important to us.

Stay healthy!
