Two weeks ago, MUNICH FABRIC START from 1 – 3 September 2020 as the first trade fair for the textile industry after the Covid-19 lockdown was confirmed – taking into account the applicable safety and hygiene measures. With the move to the large interim location of Messe München-Riem and the exhibitor registrations of 650 suppliers received at the beginning of June, it was possible to implement this challenging plan despite the short time available.

We have been working flat out to organise a trade fair at the well-known level and thus offer the industry a perspective.

Unfortunately, despite all our efforts, we are now forced to cancel MUNICH FABRIC START and BLUEZONE from 01 – 03 September 2020 due to several reasons related to the pandemic.

This hard decision is mainly based on the ongoing travel restrictions in and outside of Europe which is causing great planning uncertainty for companies and has led to cancellations by international exhibitors who had previously confirmed their participation. These issues make it impossible for us to realize this trade fair in the previously announced and well-known form.


In order to still offer our loyal exhibitors a perspective, we are now organising an alternative business event that concentrates on the essentials in the same time frame: FABRIC DAYS.


”Despite all our efforts we now had to make the difficult but unavoidable decision to cancel MUNICH FABRIC START and BLUEZONE from 1 – 3 September 2020 due to the continuing travel restrictions and further exhibitor cancellations as a result. Our priority now is to offer a special format to those exhibitors and agencies who are willing and able to present their new products on this date. With FABRIC DAYS, we offer a business focused event in Munich that concentrates on the essentials and enables the industry to work efficiently under the new conditions.”

Sebastian Klinder, Managing Director MUNICH FABRIC START

We are encouraged by the commitment, support and cooperation of a large group of exhibitors and long-standing partners who, despite the difficult situation, remain registered and have confirmed their participation in the fair.

As a partner to the industry, it is part of our philosophy to now offer a trade fair to the exhibitors and agencies who want to keep this appointment and definitely want to exhibit in Munich. FABRIC DAYS is a special event format for a limited number of exhibitors in four halls of the MOC, taking into account the applicable safety and hygiene measures.

FABRIC DAYS from 1 – 3 September 2020 in Munich presents a business focused format which is reduced to the essentials and designed to stabilise and support the industry in the return to business. Thus, the MUNICH FABRIC START team will continue to pursue the goal of providing the industry with a valuable and positive impulse.
