Next Tex #5: Call for Innovators

Circular Systems, Advanced Manufacturing, Biotech Materials & Textile Interfaces

On the 4th to 6th September 2018 Sourcebook will be presenting the fifth Next Tex Innovation Showcase. The curated group exhibition explores the future of fashion and textiles through products and projects by both trailblazing startups and established companies alike. With a focus on cross-sector technologies and sustainable systems, our exhibitors range from manufacturers and designers implementing wearable technology, to software developers, biotech labs and textile research institutes.

 

This season we are looking for exhibits that engage with:

• Circular Systems

• Advanced Manufacturing

• Biotech Materials

• Textile Interfaces

 

Next Tex takes place in 250 sqm of the Keyhouse innovations zone at the leading bi-annual textile and accessories trade fair Munich Fabric Start. Showcasing over 1000 exhibitors from 40 countries over 40 000 sqm, Munich Fabric Start attracts more than 20 300 visitors over three days – including buyers and designers from the world’s most renowned fashion brands.
