The show's organisers blamed the coronavirus outbreak in China and a date clash with Milano Unica for a decline in visitor numbers at its latest edition, held on 4-6 February, as footfall numbers fell 7%.
Beginning in 2021, the textile and clothing event will be held from July 6-8, instead of in September. This change follows the new timeline for collections, its general manager revealed to FashionNetwork.
In addition to the latest developments in the world of textiles, visitors can expect an extensive content programme with keynote speakers, workshops and seminars, including a lecture by trend forecaster Li Edelkoort.
The trade fair will bring together over 2,800 exhibitors and an international audience to discuss the latest trends in the world of sports. There will be a special focus on sports like climbing, yoga and e-sports.
