Closing report for Munich Fabric Start 1/17

With its current strategic approach as an innovation and communication platform MUNICH FABRIC START has set new standards in the face of challenging developments in the sector and on the market.

Reliability and continuity as well as an expanded portfolio with international brands are the key constants for the newly achieved growth at MUNICH FABRIC START in 2017. Expressed in figures: three very well-attended days at the fair and, in particular, a strong third day made for growth in visitor numbers of some 1% over the previous year reaching 20,100 international visitors by the end of the event

Once again meeting with wide approval was KEYHOUSE that kicked off last autumn. Equally high were the numbers at the two BLUEZONE halls ALL STAR MILLS and CATALYZER. With over 100 international brands BLUEZONE posted the highest numbers since its inception, both in terms of exhibitors and visitors. Optimism was spread by the over 1,700 very bold, imaginative and inspiring fabric collections and technical product developments from the over 1,000 suppliers. 

The highlight fabric and accessories developments staged in the TREND and COLOUR FORUM in the foyer of the MOC were able to create added appeal serving as an inspiration pool thanks to the extension and new interpretation of the ADDITIONALS TREND FORUM arranged in trend worlds.
