Fabric Days, the textile trade show platform organised by the Munich Fabric Start team (also see here) debuting in September 2020 and expected to be repeated in January, 26-28, 2021, will change dates and move to March, 2-4, 2021.
“Based on current infection rates and the situation in Europe, the German government has announced an extended set of measures last week. Unfortunately, there are no signs yet of a steady decline in infection numbers, which decreases the chance that Fabric Days would be approved in the first weeks of the new year,” explained a note from the trade show implying that the risk of cancellation at such short notice could be high and it would leave no room to take alternative action.

“If we look realistically at the next few weeks with the knowledge and experience gained over the past months, the date for Fabric Days from 26 – 28 January 2021 is no longer justifiable for our exhibitors, visitors and for all contributors. Based on these facts, we feel obliged to postpone Fabric Days by five weeks until 2 – 4 March 2021,” commented Sebastian Klinder, managing director, Munich Fabric Start.
The first feedback from the exhibitors regarding the new dates seemed understanding and positive, according to the show that expects to host about 300 international suppliers presenting their novelties and material developments for spring/summer 2022.
