From 2-4 July 2019, Neonyt is transforming Kraftwerk Berlin into the global hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation with 170 international labels, making the tradeshow the world’s biggest hotspot for progressive, sustainable fashion and technological innovations. Numerous speakers from renowned institutions and companies are driving forward the change of fashion with unmissable talks and discussions on the issues that matter.
“With Neonyt and its predecessors Greenshowroom and Ethical Fashion Show, we have been synonymous with sustainable fashion for ten years now. We have stayed true to Berlin, the top destination for sustainability, to increase awareness and acceptance of this topic. And thanks, in a large part, to Neonyt, Berlin Fashion Week is now the world’s most important hub for sustainable fashion, which gives it a real USP over the other Fashion Weeks,” says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President of Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt.
“The ground and mezzanine floors of Kraftwerk are booked to full capacity with 170 labels in total. We are delighted that countless cool, urban labels are recognising Neonyt as the epicentre of sustainable fashion. And, for the first time, we even have a waiting list due to the huge demand,” explains Thimo Schwenzfeier, Show Director of Neonyt.
At this edition, Neonyt is putting the spotlight on conventional retailers in order to bring the topic even closer to the end consumer. As part of the newly created Retail Forum, over two days there are talks and discussion panels featuring renowned speakers on highly topical, turnover-related retail topics. On a separate space and in a keynote speech under the title “Econic Goods of Gerber”, Stuttgart shopping centre Das Gerber will be presenting its shop floor vision of how sustainability can be seamlessly embedded into existing POS surroundings.
