The international fabric trade show MUNICH FABRIC START is initiating a combined area for sustainability and digitalisation in the centre of the show. This will bring the two megatrends even more centrally into the trade fair. The ReSource Area, which has been established for many years, will be combined with the new Assyst Experience on a total area of 600m2. The KEYHOUSE as the interactive innovation hub of MUNICH FABRIC START is fully occupied with many new exhibitors.

Munich, 19 December 2022. News on the subject of sustainability and digitalisation at MUNICH FABRIC START: at the Spring.Summer 24 Edition from 24 to 26 January 2023, the Munich fabric fair will focus even more on sourcing sustainable material developments and solutions for digitalisation from product to production.

In the immediate vicinity, also in Hall 2, the new Assyst Experience will be located in January: in cooperation with MUNICH FABRIC START, the fashion tech market leader will demonstrate the possibilities of digitalisation for the fashion industry on an area of around 300 square metres.
